Blink Twice (horror film: trailer).

Ever thought your tropical vacation could turn into a trip full of frights? If not, then brace yourself for “Blink Twice,” the directorial debut from Zoë Kravitz that promises a blend of sunshine, sand, and spine-tingling scares.

Picture this: Tech billionaire Slater King, played by the ever-dashing Channing Tatum, whisks cocktail waitress Frida (Naomi Ackie) away to his private island for what looks like the Instagram vacation of your dreams. The sun is shining, the parties are non-stop, and yes, there’s probably more than one fancy cocktail involved. But here’s the twist—just as you start to envy their sun-soaked revelry, things take a sharp left turn into ‘nope’ territory.

The film boasts a star-studded cast including Simon Rex, Christian Slater (no relation to Slater King, we presume), Alia Shawkat, and Geena Davis, ensuring that there’s no shortage of talent to bring the thrills—and possibly the laughs—to life. But it’s not just the cast that will keep you on your toes; it’s the island itself. It seems paradise isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and Frida begins to realise that this island might just be the hotspot for your worst nightmares.

Directed by Kravitz, with a screenplay co-written alongside E.T. Feigenbaum under the haunting former title “Pussy Island” (yes, you read that correctly), “Blink Twice” mixes psychological thriller vibes with black comedy undertones. What starts as a glamorous getaway quickly unravels into a chilling mystery that Frida must solve if she has any hope of escaping this not-so-idyllic island alive.

Why is it called “Blink Twice”? Well, you’ll have to watch to find out—but perhaps it’s a clue that in the blink of an eye, everything you thought you knew could change. Or maybe it’s a warning: blink, and you’ll miss a clue to the puzzle. Set to hit cinemas and cause a collective shudder down viewers’ spines on August 23, 2024, “Blink Twice” is shaping up to be the kind of film that leaves you questioning your next vacation destination. So, grab your popcorn (and maybe a safety blanket), because this film will ensure you never look at island paradise the same way again. Just remember, if something feels too good to be true on Slater King’s island, it probably is. Blink twice if you need help!
