Frightfest 2013 preview: Snap Simon Fitzjohn August 17, 2013 Film4 Frightfest, Latest News and Videos 1113 Looking to offer up something with a bit more meat on the bones than a lot of horror fare, Snap elects to go down the psychological route. Focusing on Jim Whitman, a brilliant but painfully introverted musician, the film follows his attempts to woo social worker Wendy (played by Nikki Reed). That all seems fine at first, but when the romance fizzles, Whitman struggles to keep a lid on the schizophrenic darkness inside him. Jake Hoffman (yep, the son of Dustin) takes on the role of Jim, a human timebomb on the verge of exploding, with support from the likes of Reed, Scott Bakula and Jason Priestley. Snap is directed by Youseff Delara (who oversaw visual effects on a number of Star Trek movies) and Victor Teran, and if the hard-hitting, mind-grating trailer is anything to go by, this could prove a tough watch – but in a good way. Snap screens at Frightfest on Friday, August 23.
