That Billie Piper's certainly doing well for herself lately, what with that recent split from Chris Evans and a critically well-recieved role in the universally acclaimed new BBC Doctor Who series. And now, from apparently out of nowhere, comes Spirit Trap a new British 'haunted house' horror film from Revolver which will be released in the UK cinemas on Aug 12th.
Directed by David Smith, this 15-Cert film shot in Romania last year also stars Luke Mably and Emma Catherwood. Judging by the trailer ("Let's have a seance!") the film is crammed with lots of horror reference points from old creaky houses, to dusty sheets, dreamcatchers, old paintings and a nice evil-looking Grandfather clock.
Could be good, although we're betting that it's not Billie Piper who can be glimpsed naked writhing on the bed in the trailer! Check it out for yourself here:
Four young students move into an old unoccupied mansion. Tom is a smart and cocky drug dealer, and Adele is his feisty and sexual girlfriend. Jenny is a good-natured girl with clairvoyant powers, and Nick is a kind and sensitive art student.
Inside, the four students meet their fifth housemate, Tina, a beautiful, exotic and mysterious girl. Strange things start to happen when Nick gets an old Russian Spirit Clock working again. Mobile phones stop working. They hear mysterious noises and Jenny begins to see things in the house - shadows of torches on the walls and an angry mob in Edwardian clothes that nails a man to the floor...
