Director Eddie Alcazarit’s a sci-fi horror movie Divinity released its first trailer with a red stripe. Director of a feature film created by Steven Soderbergh visually unlike anything we’ve seen in modern cinema. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to critical acclaim and was followed by an international premiere at the Taormina Film Festival in June.

Created with a perfect blend of stop motion animation and live action, the trailer gives the viewer a very eerie feeling. It explores otherworldly human existence and follows Jackson Pierce, a man in possession of an immortality serum called Divinity. He is followed by two mysterious brothers who kidnap the tycoon, and his only hope is a mysterious seductive woman. This feature looks amazing with its black and white tones, dystopian atmosphere and almost classic 80’s horror movie effect. The visuals are as cool as the gripping story, as we see footage of body horror and scientific experimentation, among other things. This feature is definitely not for the faint of heart and falls into the sci-fi horror genre.

‘Divinity’ is full of talent behind the scenes and in front of the camera

Years later, his son Jackson Pierce controls and produces the serum and becomes involved with two mysterious brothers. Jackson’s last hope is a mysterious woman who takes the twins on a journey of self-discovery.

Considering Alcazar and Soderbergh are the creative minds behind this film, it’s sure to be a mind-blowing story. Divinity brings the two together after Alcazar’s hyper-stylized sci-fi debut Ideal. And just like the previous film, this one will also expand the imagination of the audience.
