The Cleanse trailer: Johnny Galecki expels his demons

Quite literally

There’s something of a 80s throwback feel to horror comedy The Cleanse, which has just released it first trailer. It’s hard to tell if the score has been borrowed from another film, but either way it adds to its retro style. Watching the trailer it all looks a little odd but it does welcome back the always wonderful Anjelica Huston, who apart from a small voice part in Isle of Dogs, has largely been doing TV for a the past 6/7 years. Take a look at the trailer and see what you think.

After holding onto heartbreak for several years, Paul (Galecki) decides to restart his life, joining a spiritual retreat designed to cleanse negative toxins from his body. But things take a turn when Paul and the other participants discover that the cleanse releases something far greater than everyday toxins and traumatic experiences.

Bobby Miller writes and directs his first feature, with Anna Friel, Oliver Platt, Kevin J. O’Connor and Kyle Gallner all supporting Johnny Galecki as the lead.

The Cleanse gets an early May release in the US but no news yet for the UK.
