A strange menacing mood. Scared people. Something lurking in the dark. These are the only plot details that can be gathered from the mysterious trailer of Prithviraj’s upcoming horror movie Ezra.
Without giving much information, the one-minute-32-second trailer provided heavy dollops of dread as it slowly crept the camera down the tomb of Abraham Ezra and then to a few frightened faces, as the music hums danger and the dialogues set a desperate scene.
A first of its kind in Malayalam, the trailer employed brilliant visuals that piqued the interest of the audience so much so that movie buffs were impatiently waiting for the movie to hit theaters. And, the wait is finally over.
