Trailer For Shudder’s ‘The Power’ Fears the Darkness [Video]

Shudder’s power goes out on April 8th with the premiere of their supernatural horror, The Power, which now has a trailer.

The film takes place in 1974 London, “As Britain prepares for electrical blackouts to sweep across the country, trainee nurse Val (Rose Williams) arrives for her first day at the crumbling East London Royal Infirmary. With most of the patients and staff evacuated to another hospital, Val is forced to work the night shift, finding herself in a dark, near empty building. Within these walls lies a deadly secret, forcing Val to face both her own traumatic past and deepest fears in order to confront the malevolent force that’s intent on destroying everything around her.

“I realised while we were filming that we were telling a story about the silence of girls,” director Corinna Faith said in a statement. “Voices made quiet. Then I realised, that without planning, I was telling the story of my journey to that moment too. It had taken many years, and changes in my own confidence and the confidence of the industry to get there. To allow my own voice to speak. Like the restless spirit, I’ve no intention of laying it to rest now.”
