Calling director Brendan Walsh’s new film “claustrophobic” may be the understatement of the year. “Centigrade” is a film built on a suffocating premise. And as far as these types of tightly confined movies go, it’s a ‘based on a true story’ thriller that shows a lot of promise.
The film follows husband and wife Matt and Naomi (played by Vincent Piazza and Genesis Rodriguez). We don’t really know the cause, but the two of them find themselves stranded in a stalled car that’s buried under ice and snow. With both food and patience running out, the couple are pushed to the very edge in their attempts at surviving. Oh, and there are a couple of other interesting details in the new trailer I’ll let you discover for yourself.
“Centigrade” premieres in select theaters and on VOD August 28th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
