Here is a full length Old Trailer. No we don’t mean it from an ‘old’ film but a new film titled Old from the highly regarded writer M Night Shyamalan. As the trailer points out the writer is known for 1999’s The Sixth Sense and the more recent, 2016, Split.

Like it’s title the premise is simple, ageing. However it becomes scary when this happens in a short space of time. It’s been done many times in science-fiction such as Indiana Jones, and to great outrange from shocked viewers quite a few times in Doctor Who. Here the setting is a idilic beech on a relaxed holiday. The way it’s done with it a creeping slow reality brings a new horrific dimension!
