(Trailer) Paraphrenia

Paraphrenia is a Psychological Horror Thriller that combines the editing tension of extreme French new wave movies (Martyrs, Haute Tension) – less gory though, with old-fashioned cold Horror Thrillers like Henry-Portrait of a Serial Killer or the unforgetable but infamous Necrophobia (1995) and Andrej Zulawski’s Possession (1981). The movie showcases the rare case of Fregoli Delusion, where the patient cannot recognize someone’s face or identity and the so-called Capgras Syndrome, where someone thinks a person for dead, or even goes so far thinking that a person has been replaced by someone else, which has become widely famous with John Carpenter’s The Thing and The Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

The movie is shot and edited in 4K Raw for an upcoming 2016 international release, and features an international cast of actors, including Ulrich Guenther (Enemy Mine), Kristina Kostiv (German Angst) and Filip Chalatsis (Brutal, Razor).

“Judy is a mental patient, who suffers from the Fregoli Delusion, a rare case in which a person cannot identify faces, not being able to tell what is real and what isn’t. After waking up inside a green van in the middle of a field, Judy manages to get back home. With her cell phone being broken, she grabs her laptop to seek help. The first thing she sees is an e-mail from her best friend Mark, with a file attachment, a video file. She opens the video and witnesses Mark committing suicide in front of the camera. The series of shock events force Judy to meet an old girlfriend, Jessica, who also knew Mark. Jessica had a similar experience 6 months ago, with one of her friends committing suicide and also recording it on video. The two girls realize that this cannot be a coincidence. The whole thing brings them very close together, even close to an erotic relationship, which makes Judy even more confused. Under the guidance of her psychologist, Judy is trying to remember, she tries to connect the dots between her abusing father, her dead mother, Mark, Jessica and the true nature of her psychologist. The truth is far more absurd and gruesome compared to her delusions.”
