The Blackout trailer online

A trailer popped online for a film called The Blackout, a smaller film that wants to do one of those common but very cool ideas of portraying a huge incident in a very small and closed off view.

The Blackout is the story of a blackout that is spreading across the country and it seems like the world, and the residents of an apartment building are caught in their building and are disappearing one by one. It seems that something in the basement is thriving in the darkness and looking to break free.

The trailer for The Blackout looks pretty interesting, if it does give away a feel that it was shot on a lower budget I don't think it matters that much because it does give a good sense of what the film is about as well as what it is going to offer. There seems to be a fair amount of tense moments as well as some well filmed and framed shots. Then, of course, there's the creature at the end.

Low budget perhaps, but it does seem like it might provide for a good, tense, horror. Here's the blurb for The Blackout:

The trailer for The Blackout. When an apartment building’s lights go out mysteriously, all of the tenants put aside their problems and band together to get to the bottom of the city-wide blackout. Deep in the basement of the high-rise, a hideous breed of monster hatches and begins to wreak havoc. Everyone must find a way to kill the blood-thirsty creatures and survive the darkness before it destroys the world.

To follow that up, here's the trailer.

Would you believe this is written by a writer on Pink Panther & Pals, a cartoon series about the young Pink Panther, and the director was the editor on the same show, Jim Beck and Robert David Sanders.
