The trailer of Malayalam actor Prithviraj's "Ezra" is out.
A horror thriller set in Fort Kochi and Sri Lanka, Ezra also stars Priya Anand and Babu Antony.
From the trailer, it appears that the film is about a Jewish man named Abraham Ezra and the mystery surrounding his death. His spirit "dislocated from his body" in 1941 AD, as a printed piece of paper tells us.
"Ezra" employs the usual elements of the horror genre - shattered glass, talk of evil spirits, objects that move by themselves and so on. The shot of the hands hanging from the ceiling looks quite chilling though.
Written and directed by Jay K, "Ezra" is expected to release later this month. The trailer has received a good response on social media, with several pointing out that the cinematography by Sujith Vaassudev looked top notch.

Prithviraj's last film was Jeethu Joseph's revenge thriller "Oozham" which opened to lukewarm reviews.
