We don’t know if we’ll ever get used to seeing ‘trailers’ for novels, but this caught our eye (and we like clever viral marketing for the horror genre, too). Get a load of this synopsis:
…the daughter of a reclusive horror film director Stanislav Cordova is found dead, and fallen journalist Scott McGrath falls into the maddening wormhole of trying to uncover the truth behind the girl’s murder. Night Film gets darker and more twisted the deeper McGrath ventures into Cordova’s world—the man hasn’t been seen in public in 30 years, and his films are so horrifying that it’s believed the person who created them must be seriously disturbed as well.
OK! We’re on board. We’ll also poke around and see what other goodies are out there to promote author Marisha Pessl‘s Night Film and get back to you. To be continued!

Amazing amount of effort and quality put into a book trailer. Fascinating.
I know. Check out the piece on the fictional posters if you can–they did a really beautiful job on the artwork. Especially considering these are fictional films, and though the novel has quite a bit of mixed media (newspaper clippings, message board entries, secret websites the author gained access to), I’m not even sure the posters are included in there, maybe just online. I’d go see a couple of those!
