Gone trailer looks powerful

AmandaSeyfried.jpgGone is a film about a girl, played by Amanda Seyfried, who was once abducted by a killer and trapped but before they could kill her she escaped. A Year later her sister goes missing and she is convinced that the same man has taken her and that she doesn't have long to survive and then she believes she will be next. Of course the police don't believe her and she decides to find the killer, and her sister, before it's too late.

The film comes from director Heitor Dhalia who wrote and directed Adrift and Drained, no not the one about the two divers abandoned in the middle of the sea, and written by Alison Burnett who has written Underworld Awakening, Fame, Untraceable, Bleeding Hearts and Resurrecting the Champ.

The trailer looks and sounds good, the camera is always moving the scenes moving us forward through the action at a decent pace, and Amanda Seyfried looks like she's going to deliver a strong performance, plus there's Jennifer Carpenter.

It does build the tension well with that soundtrack, but at the same time I'm not so sure. Having been shown two other characters in the film barring those of the police I now find myself wondering if we've just been shown the killer or not.

Thrillers like this have been ten a penny in the past, and we have to hope that this has something new to offer, certainly the trailer looks good. Here's the blurb for Gone:

Jill Parrish comes home from working the night shift to discover that her sister Molly has disappeared. Jill is convinced that Molly has been abducted by the same serial killer from whom Jill escaped the year before and that by sundown Molly will be dead. The police think Jill is crazy, so she sets out alone to rescue her.

There's certainly some strong talent on the film, but what about that trailer which comes through Yahoo Movies and First Showing. See what you think of Gone:
