Evolution Trailer (2016)

Trailer for Evolution, starring Max Brebant, Roxane Duran and Julie-Marie Parmentier.

10-year-old Nicolas lives with his mother on a remote island, in a village inhabited solely by women and young boys. In a hospital overlooking the ocean, all the boys are subjected to a mysterious medical treatment. Only Nicolas questions what is happening around him. He senses that his mother is lying to him, and is determined to find out what she does with the other women at night, on the beach… What he discovers is the beginning of a nightmare into which he is helplessly drawn. But in Stella, a young nurse at the hospital, Nicolas finds an unexpected ally.

Evolution represents Lucille Hadzihalilovic's return to feature directing, having not directed a film for over a decade, with his last feature being 2005's Innocence. After a small festival run, the film is expected to have a cult following with it's horrifying take on the birds and the bees.

Evolution Trailer Screencap

It's amazing that the Evolution trailer can make your hair stand on end long before it gets in the latter gruesome visuals. It's the power of the music selection, as it's creepy as hell!

That being said, the film's first trailer doesn't feel the need to give plot elements but instead pull in the audience's curiosity with disturbing visuals that happen so fast you are going to need to remind the trailer a few times to catch everything. That is, if you want to catch everything.

Though Evolution is being released over ten years after Innocence, the film is being described as a "companion" piece.
