A conversation gets creepy in a clip from Tribeca-premiering chiller “ULTRASOUND”

The talk becomes eerie, insinuating and inappropriate in the new independent fright film.

ULTRASOUND makes its U.S. premiere next Tuesday, June 15 as a Midnight presentation at the Tribeca Film Festival, then has its international premiere later this summer at the Fantasia International Film Festival. Rob Schroeder directed from a script by Conor Stechschulte, and the movie stars Vincent Kartheiser, Chelsea Lopez, Breeda Wool, Tunde Adebimpe, Rainey Qualley, Chris Gartin and Bob Stephenson. The synopsis: “Driving home late at night during a heavy rainstorm, Glen experiences car trouble. Near where his car gets stuck, he spots a house, knocks on the door and is greeted by an oddly friendly middle-aged man, Arthur, and his younger wife, Cyndi. The strange couple pours him a drink, and then more drinks, followed by an unexpected offer that Glen can’t refuse. Elsewhere, a young woman, Katie, is feeling emotionally weighed down by a secret romantic arrangement that feels like a textbook case of gaslighting. And at the same time, in a nondescript research facility, medical professional Shannon begins questioning her role in a bizarre experiment, fearing that she’s doing more harm than good.”
