The brilliant filmmaking duo of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who brought us Resolution, Spring, V/H/S: Viral, The Endless, and Synchronic, are back with Something in the Dirt. The first teaser trailer has just debuted along with the poster (via EW).
In Something in the Dirt, “Two new neighbors witness what seems to be a supernatural event in one of their apartments. At first terrified, they realize that documenting this phenomenon could provide them the lives they’ve always dreamed of.”
“It’s a sort of love letter to Los Angeles,” the duo said. “And the movie is a mystery, so we don’t want to give away too much. But… generally the movie’s about these two new neighbors – one of them just moved into an apartment… something that might be paranormal or otherworldly happens. And they decide to explore it together.” They continue, “It’s a reaction to, ‘What if you made The X-Files today? How would you do it?’.” They say the film also deals with the “moral duties of a sci-fi writer today.”
David Lawson who also produced the duo’s film The Endless will produce Something in the Dirt, opening in theaters on November 4, 2022, from XYZ Films.
