The teaser of Karthik Subbaraj’s upcoming film Mercury was released by actor Dhanush today. The one-minute teaser looks creepy and gripping throughout. Mercury is a silent film and will be released in many languages simultaneously.

According to reports, the plot of the film is based on an abandoned place that bears the sad and horrific deaths of 84 people due to mercury poisoning.
The background score of the film and the soundtrack is so scary that it will send shivers down your spine. Indian Movie Industry Tracker Ramesh Bala on Wednesday took to micro-blogging site Twitter to share the teaser of the much-anticipated film and wrote, “Here is Silent Thriller (No language) – @PDdancing – Dir @karthiksubbaraj ‘s #MercuryTeaser – A scary one..” Prabhu Deva will be playing the villain opposite the protagonists Sananth Reddy, Deepak Paramesh, Anish Padman, Shashank and Remya Nambeesan.

What makes this film different from other horror films is that Mercury is a silent horror flick. Karthik Subbaraj will next direct Superstar Rajinikanth in a yet-untitled film, which will have music by Anirudh Ravichander. The film is bankrolled by Sun Pictures.
