Is There a Run Rabbit Run Trailer?

The official trailer for Run Rabbit Run, which just came out, asks the common but scary question, “What if dead people came back to life?” Or what if they turn into us? Based on the idea that this is a scary topic, the trailer for the movie has scary music in the background. From the beginning, it’s clear this is a horror movie, though it doesn’t have to be supernatural. But the main movie might have some supernatural parts you will know about once you watch it. The vast, empty country landscapes in the film’s background add to the chilling feeling. This is something that Australian movies are best known for exploring.

As the trailer clip shows, the story is about Sarah (Snook) and her seven-year-old daughter Mia, who is curious about where dead people go after they die. When she discovers that Sarah’s sister died when she was seven, the same age as Mia, her interest grows and becomes an obsession. The little girl’s obsession with a dead girl the same age as her and her likes and dislikes, like her love of rabbits, takes a scary turn. This forces Sarah to face her dark family history and simultaneously deal with her troublesome daughter. In a way, the movie also looks at the relationship between a mother and her daughter and how the mother tries to deal with the child’s curious, obsessive, and difficult nature as she grows up.
