As we wait for Mia Goth to reprise her role as Maxine in Tee West’s final X MaXXXine trilogy, the actress will keep horror fans on their toes with Brandon Cronenberg’s wild thriller Infinity Pool. The film releases at the end of January, and the first trailer left a mark on fans of the genre thanks to Goth’s laughter. Now, new character posters allow us to get up close and personal with everyone caught up in Cronenberg’s latest nightmare.
The four posters feature Gaby (Mia Goth), James (Alexander Skarsgård), Em (Cleopatra Coleman) and an unknown character wearing a creepy mask. James and Em try to enjoy the perfect island vacation. When they meet Gaby and have a tragic accident, they find themselves in a violent society where they can either clone themselves or die for their crimes.
Judging from the trailer released last month, this is another wild Cronenberg film with a ton of unsettling imagery and the classic body horror that the director’s famed pedigree is known for. Brandon’s father David Cronenberg is best known for The Fly, Videodrome, Scanners and Future Crimes, and Brandon recently shot to fame with the underrated 2020 thriller In Another’s Skin. Infinity Pool looks set to continue this trend with the addition of cloning combined with the director’s typical body horror frenzy.
It also helps that this movie has an all-star cast. As said, Goth made her mark last year with A24’s hit horror films “X” and “Pearl,” but before that, she’s shown off her incredible range in films like Suspiria, Shadowkeep, The Cure from health” and “Emma”. There is also Skarsgård, who relatively recently played in Robert Egger’s epic Northerner. The prerequisites are in place for Infinity Pool to become the genre’s next hit. Over the past few years, Neon, like A24, has quietly made a name for itself as a studio making insanely unique films.
Infinity Pool will hit theaters on January 27, 2023. For those who missed the trailer:
