OMAR EPPS SPEAKS ABOUT UNUSUAL CHARACTER

For Omar, it was a complete departure from the characters he is used to taking on, as the detective he plays is ambivalent about the source of the evil he is facing. He said:

“This character was a challenge in that I had to keep the character grounded. I mean, we don’t know if what’s happening is supernatural or not. It’s like this surreal circumstance happening, and a man who basically loses himself trying to figure out the puzzle. That was challenging and that really attracted me to the project.”

To judge by the trailer, "Trick" ia a hair-raising experience, but the Epps family walked smiling.

"My everythings!"
