‘Spring’ Trailer: The Girl Of Your Dreams Is More Than Meets The Eye


Death has a funny way of making the living realize everything they are doing in their own lives is probably a mistake. Maybe it’s the fact that the death of anyone reminds us of our own impending doom, or maybe it’s because we suddenly understand how precious time actually is, but whatever the case death has long proven to be one of the biggest motivators of all time – both in life and art.

Spring, the upcoming film from the team that delivered Resolution, takes this idea in a new direction while following a familiar blueprint. Evan, a young man going nowhere in life, realizes just how lost he is shortly after the death of his mother. He decides to travel abroad, randomly choosing Italy as his destination, and it’s there he meets a girl unlike anyone he has met before. There’s only one catch: She’s more than human. I don’t know how or why, but that certainly appears to be the case. You can view the film’s first trailer below:

The official synopsis for Spring reads:

“When his ailing mother dies, Evan realizes his life isn’t going anywhere. Grabbing his last paycheque, he decides to go on the European graduation trip that he never got a chance to take. Picking a destination at random, he arrives in Italy, where he backpacks and parties with other tourists. But everything changes for Evan when he arrives in an idyllic southern town and meets the enchanting Louise (German actress Nadia Hilker). A tender romance begins to bloom between the two — but Louise harbours a dark, primordial secret that could destroy the happiness they’re just beginning to build.”

There was a moment or two in the trailer when I felt like we were going to see a werewolf:

Fur + claws = werewolf, right?

Fur + claws = werewolf, right?

A few seconds later, however, I swear we’re shown a tail or tentacle of some kind:
