Watch the official trailer for the highly anticipated To The Moon below:
To The Moon follows Dennis and Mia, a young couple who find their weekend retreat becomes a hallucinatory nightmare when Dennis’ estranged brother Roger arrives and begins to distort their senses.
A dysfunctional family study by way of psychological, psychedelic thriller that plays out under the weight of addiction and takes its three leads to darkly funny lows, the film takes the trope of the uninvited house guest and turns it into a metaphor for the fallout of trauma on the relationship between a young couple.
To The Moon has already made its premiere at the 2021 NIGHTSTREAM Film Festival and will also be on the big screen for a special screening one night only September 19, 2022, at Nitehawk Williamsburgh, in Brooklyn, New York.
“To the Moon is brilliantly creative and funny… Subliminal in its delivery of these excellent performances and underhanded themes. Will Brill’s performance is memorable, as one of the best and most original performances of the year.” – Juli Cabot, Adventures in Poor Taste
“A lithe, powerful little film… Guaranteed to get under your skin.” – Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, AWFJ Women on Film
“A thrilling fever dream from a promising new director.” – Cass Clark, CBR.com
