LOS ANGELES (Circa) – If you could see your lost loved ones one more time, would you?
That’s the question asked in the new thriller “I Still See You,” in which the survivors of a nuclear blast are haunted by apparitions of its victims. Though seemingly cathartic, visions of your loved ones can quickly turn negative, according to its star Bella Thorne.
Having lost her father in 2007, Bella confronted her own notions about loss in the film when acting out scenes in which she sees her father every day.
You think that you want to see them again, right? ...And then that can somehow become so depressing, and sad, and evil, and negative, and that's what the movie explores.
Bella was joined in the Circa studio by co-star Richard Harmon, who elaborated on the themes expressed in both the film and the novel, "Break My Heart One Thousand Times" by Daniel Waters, from which it's based.
It's a thriller absolutely, and it'll keep people on the edge of their seats, but it deals primarily with such a common human trait in loss and how everyone deals with it differently.
"I Still See You" is in theaters and available on-demand today.
