Trip Trailer Promises a Chilling Ghost Story

I’m constantly on the lookout for good new horror movies, so whenever I hear about an upcoming film with an intriguing story, I always check out the trailer to see how it looks. Most of the time, I just end up closing the browser window and then moving on with my life, but every once in a while, I come across a diamond in the rough that looks like it’ll actually live up to the promise of its premise. And the trailer for Trip is one of those times. Here’s what the film is about:

Following her daughter’s suicide, a grief-stricken mother is visited by an unconventional therapist who offers a hallucinogenic drug that will allow communion with the dead. Desperate to understand her daughter’s psyche she accepts the offer, and soon finds herself terrorized by her daughter’s identical experiences.

As someone who’s lost a number of really close family members throughout my life, I find that plot description super intriguing. Even now, years after those losses, I’d still do just about anything to see my deceased loved ones again, so I was pretty much hooked from the premise alone.

Then, when I watched the trailer for Trip, I knew I had to add the film to my to-watch list right away. There’s a lot to love about it, like the creepy sketches and the bloody body in the bathtub, but for my money, the best thing about this trailer is the way it matches its creepy visuals with chilling voiceovers.

For example, when the mother flips through her daughter’s sketchbook, you hear the therapist tell a story that seems to match the girl’s experiences to a tee. It’s pretty eerie, and when the woman ends the story by saying that the people in it didn’t stop the ghost, it makes for an utterly spine-tingling moment.

It makes me wonder how the characters in this movie are going to stop whatever is haunting them, and luckily, I’m not going to have to wait very long to find out. Trip releases on the Terror Films AVOD YouTube channel on May 13 before hitting VOD on May 20, and if it’s as good as the trailer suggests, we’re in for one hell of a spooky ride.
