Brain On Fire Trailer: Chloë Grace Moretz Rapidly Descends into Insanity
Chloë Grace Moretz has always been destined for greatness. She wowed us as Chelsea Lutz in the Amityville Horror, and she shocked us as Carrie in the movie Carrie. Chloë Grace Moretz continues her trend of… well… breath taking performances as she haunts us with her performance as Susannah Cahalan in her new film Brain on Fire.
Chloë Grace Moretz stars as Susannah Cahalan – a young woman who is rapidly descending into insanity. The film is based on a true story, and is also heavily based off Susannah Cahalan’s memoir Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness
Susannah Cahalan, a journalist at the New York Post, has serious health issues, including seizures and hearing voices. Over the following weeks her condition worsens and she quickly goes from violence to catatonia. After numerous misdiagnoses and a hospitalization, a doctor gives her a diagnosis with the hope she can rebuild her life. One day Cahalan wakes up in the hospital with no memory at all of her previous month.
