Watch the freaky new trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Edgar Wright’s psychological thriller about a young girl, passionate in fashion design, who is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer. But 1960s London is not what it appears, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences…
As a writer-director, Edger Wright is known for his off-kilter genius and ability to really switch things up, but we’ve never seen anything like this from the director before and Last Night In Soho looks like one hell of a fun ride. Taking inspiration from classic examples of the psychological horror genre such as Repulsion and Don’t Look Now, and the result is a film that is undeniably frightening and twisted and sure to keep you up at night.
Focusing on issues of identity and the horrors of the pst as our main character Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie) finds herself travelling back in time and becoming ensnared in the glamourous world of the 1960s and the life of Sandy (Anya Taylor-Joy) a wannabe singer of the era who has a taste for the good life. But things soon quickly escalate and Eloise quickly begins to lose her grip on reality and that’s when things appear to take a very nasty turn.
The imagery on display looks absolutely dazzling and thus film is certainly a feast for the eyes thanks to the sexed-up cool of the early 1960s and Wright’s use of exuberant neon lighting really make this one something special to look upon. Last Night In Soho just oozes cool and it’s certainly going to make for a scary, yet fun watch.
Prepare for plenty of psychological twists and some very scary turns when Last Night In Soho arrives in cinemas on October 21.
