We have new details for a movie coming up called 388 Areletta Avenue :). I don’t understand the emoticon at the end of that title but am hoping the movie explains it. Otherwise it’s just stupid. Still could be if the explanation is weak. I am getting sidetracked though. The movie has some real talent in it. You have got Nick Stahl (Sin City, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Mirrors 2), Mia Kirshner (The Black Dahlia, The Vampire Diaries), and Devon Sawa (Final Destination, Idle Hands).
The synopsis goes like this: “Shot from the point of view of hidden cameras, the film follows a thirty-something couple, James and Amy Deakin, as they are secretly videotaped 24/7 by a mysterious stalker in their home, on the streets, and at their workplace. The stalker uses information gleaned from the footage to subtly manipulate the unsuspecting couple, and cracks in their relationship surface. When Amy suddenly vanishes, James is not sure whether she has been abducted or has simply left him. As the acts of the tormentor become more twisted and violent, James desperately tries to figure out who is behind the terror in order to save his wife. But it seems the stalker is always one move ahead…
“388 Arletta Avenue : ) is a wickedly smart mystery-thriller,” says executive producer Vincenzo Natali. “And it’s a story that could not have existed until recently, thanks to the astonishing and invasive technology that is now widely available. The fact that it is possible makes it truly terrifying.”
“388 Arletta Avenue : ) plays with the notion that if you could scratch to beneath the surface of what most supposedly ordinary people present to the world, and even to themselves, you would find very interesting and possibly very dark things,” says Randall Cole. “If exploited, some of those things could even result in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, as it does for our lead character.”
Done right this could be a fun taught thriller. It definitely touches on the idea that we have too much available to the world. With cameras as prevalent as they are, social networking, and easily tapped phones we have to think what could someone determined enough learn about us? That is a frightening thought.
