A couple months ago, director Kevin Smith released his horror anthology KillRoy Was Here as an NFT. Now writer/director Jonas Odenheimer is bringing us a film that puts a horror twist on the concept of NFTs and crypto currency. The title of Odenheimer’s film is NFT, and a teaser trailer has just arrived online. You can check it out in the embed above.
NFT centers on
a group of crypto-savvy millennials who are trying to escape their 9-5s by flipping NFTs as a side hustle. After buying into a supposedly ‘cursed’ NFT collection, they begin experiencing mysterious occurrences and will now have to fight for their lives.
The film stars David Wayman (The Ledge), Mariah Nonnemacher (Terminator: Dark Fate), Durassie Kiangangu (Imperial Blue), Amelie Edwards (Neighbourhood Ties), Nobuse Jnr (South Beast), Jasmine Clark (The Wasteland of Education), newcomer Charlie Rich, and Najarra Townsend of Contracted, Wolf Mother, and The Stylist.
Odenheimer produced NFT through his company Old Jim Productions. The filmmaker previously wrote and directed the 2015 horror film Classroom 6, which was about a TV crew investigating a school that was “haunted by a horrific past”.
I’m not into the whole NFT thing and don’t really understand it, but if we’re going to be seeing the worlds of NFTs and movies collide I’d much rather see a movie deal with NFTs in its plot rather than being released as an NFT. (I’m still anxiously waiting to hear that KillRoy Was Here is going to be released in a more traditional way someday.)
How does the NFT trailer look to you? Is this a movie you’ll be adding to your watch list? Let us know what you think of this one by leaving a comment below. The fact that Najarra Townsend is in the cast was already enough to get me interested in seeing it.
