An official trailer has been released for “The Scary of Sixty-First,” a thriller set on the Upper East Side described by IndieWire as a collision between “The worlds of Jeffrey Epstein, ‘Eyes Wide Shut,’ and QAnon conspiracy theories.”
Dasha Nekrasova, c0-host of the “Red Scare” podcast, is the film’s director, co-writer and a cast member.
The movie debuted at the 2021 Berlin Film Festival, winning a Best First Feature prize, and it’s expected to be released in theaters and on streaming platforms in December.
Here’s the full synopsis:
“While out apartment hunting, college pals Noelle and Addie stumble upon the deal of a lifetime: a posh duplex on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. But soon after moving in, a more sinister picture of the apartment emerges when a mysterious woman arrives and claims the property used to belong to the infamous and recently-deceased Jeffrey Epstein. With this news, Noelle becomes obsessed with the visitor–to the point of infatuation. As the pair plunge deeper into the conspiracies of the Epstein case, Addie falls into her own bizarre state: a pseudo-possession complete with inexplicable fits of age-regressed sexual mania. As they peel back on these strange occurrences, the truth reveals itself to be more twisted than they could have ever imagined.”
The 1 hour, 21 minute movie currently has a 73% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
