First Look trailer: Mira Sorvino's direct-to-DVD backwoods chiller 'The Presence'

According to IMDb, Mira Sorvino has been quite busy lately. Although, to be honest, we sort of tuned out around the time she costarred with Val Kilmer’s blind masseuse in 1999’s At First Sight. So we were pleased to see the trailer for her creepy new haunted-cabin flick, The Presence. The fact that it was produced by The Blair Witch Project’s Daniel Myrick only heightened our interest.

What can we tell from the trailer to this straight-to-DVD supernatural thriller? Well, first off, that Ms. Sorvino (sorry, Academy Award-winner Ms. Sorvino) appears to have inherited a secluded cabin in the woods from her grandfather, who wasn’t a good guy. Second, that some sort of ghost who looks quite a bit like Shane West haunts said cabin with the intent of freaking her out. Third, that costar Justin Kirk has apparently been nominated at some point in the past for a Golden Globe in no way prevents him from being stalked in an outhouse. Fourth, that the whole final-scare-lunge-at-the-camera trick is still being used by trailer cutters. And finally, that it comes out on Oct. 4. Take a peek and let us know what you think…
