TAMPA — The trailer for the movie Fear of Rain begins with an aerial shot of the Tampa skyline.
That is the last peaceful part of the one-minute video promoting the psychological horror film shot throughout the Tampa Bay area in early 2019.
What follows are chilling scenes of a teenage girl taking a bloody shower and possibly eating maggots, being chased through the woods, buried alive and yelled at by her reflection in the mirror, all as she questions whether the images are real or demented figments of her imagination.
The movie, according to IMDB.com, features Katherine Heigl and Harry Connick, Jr. as the parents of the teenage girl (portrayed by Madison Iseman) living with schizophrenia and struggling with terrifying hallucinations as she begins to suspect her neighbor has kidnapped a child. The only person who believes her is a boy named Caleb (portrayed by Israel Broussard) who she isn’t sure exists.
Collider.com, which premiered the trailer, reports that Fear of Rain is rated PG-13 and will be released to video on demand on Feb. 12 and to Blu-ray and DVD Feb. 16.
Fear of Rain was directed by Bradenton’s Castille Landon.
Among the producers are Tampa’s Robert Molloy and Jessica Steinbrenner, both of the Steinbrenner baseball family, and Dori Rath and Joseph Restaino.
