A new trailer is up for A Scanner Darkly, the latest adaptation of a Philip K. Dick book.

I must say, the early teaser trailers left me cold. The draw-on-me special effects kind of creeped me out. Not helping the situation is that I keep seeing that commercial (for whatever product they’re selling) that uses the same effect. (Note to commercial directors: when the special effects of the commercial overshadow your product – that’s bad.) However, seeing this longer trailer is somehow more palatable. I don’t know if that will hold true for 80 minutes or however long the average film lasts these days. But, I’m willing to give it a try. At least if I tell myself that, then I will force myself to read the book beforehand, something I’ve been meaning to do since I bought it years ago.
