Somebody’s Darling

A brooding mysterious fraternity president becomes obsessed with a coed despite having it all in his privileged existence.  What begins as a hopeful romance twists into obsession, and he risks his social standing in his pursuit of her heart. It seems that a positive change of character might bloom as he drifts away from the misogynistic, hedonist ways of his frat brothers.

But a dark secret seems to cloak it all, and glimpses of truth surface in his surreal visions and dreams. Huge and horrible revelations mark the violent finale of this retro-styled, psychological, horror drama touching upon current issues of date rape culture, southern history, and privilege. 

My thoughts: That trailer. Wow. I’m not sure how I feel about that, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing, either. The score for the trailer for Somebody’s Darling strikes a note that makes it feel all the more disturbing. I also liked some of the visuals as well.  I don’t know if I’ll be watching it, but that’s more because sexual violence isn’t really something that I like in my horror, but I’m tempted. I’m very, very tempted…

What did you guys think about the music in the trailer?

  1. It is intriguing, for sure. I like the music but I’m not sure how it fits in with everything else. I’ll check it out and see if I can access it on Amazon here (not all the films are available everywhere. We shall see). Thanks.

  2. I’d probably watch it just to see what it’s actually all about. It mentions a supernatural element and wonder how that ties in. The music, maybe it should be more ominous or build for suspense?
