Last year’s international pet craze was owls, fuelled by the Harry Potter phenomenon – young fans all over the world have been disappointed to learn that in real life owls do not collect the mail. So what might they turn to next? Here’s the trailer for Worm, an eccentric-looking indie sci-fi film directed by Doug Mallette and currently in post-production.
Worm is due for completion in September 2012 and while I only have the evidence of the trailer to go on, I think this has the potential to be a stand-out movie. While there are many films that play with ideas of reality, perception and dreams, this can of worms is a different kettle of fish. The plot of Inception, for example, didn’t require Leo or Ellen to travel between realities by aural insertion of earthworms. I’m just waiting to see what Untrademarked Productions has in mind for merchandising.
