11-11-11 trailer promises creepy thrills

"I believe in God; that means I also believe in the devil," is one of a few creepy lines in the latest trailer for the upcoming horror thriller from the man behind Saw II-IV, 11-11-11. Did you know there's a whole movement that marks that impending November date as apocalyptic? Yeah, neither did we. But, hey, there's a movie about it, so it must be legit (right, 2012?).

In this new theatrical preview, we are teased by the idea of an 11-11 movement
that will bring an apocalyptic supernatural fearfest onto mankind. Unlike an earlier teaser released for the film, an actual plot can be seen this time around. From director Darren Lynn Bousman, who also created Repo! The Genetic Opera, the film seems like an interesting take on the actual New Age belief that the day signals some sort of monumental spiritual event. The film, however, rests in the hands of a guy who is better at the outlandish graphic horror scares than the creepier, more refined thriller variety. Nonetheless, this trailer gives us hope—for now—that this will not be B-movie fare, but a capable and scary film.

In the film, after the tragic death of his wife and child, author Joseph Crone (Timothy Gibbs) travels from the United States to Barcelona, Spain, to reunite with his estranged brother Samuel (Michael Landes) and dying father, Richard (Denis Rafter). However, fate has a different plan. Joseph becomes plagued with strange happenings and the constant sightings of the number 11. Curiosity quickly turns to obsession, and Joseph soon realizes that this number holds a horrific meaning. Isolated in a foreign country with only the support of his companion, Sadie, Joseph soon realizes that 11/11/11 is more than just a date, it's a WARNING!
