First trailer for new Netflix horror In the Tall Grass
The film is adapted from a story by Stephen King and his son Joe Hill.
Netflix has released the first trailer for its upcoming horror film In the Tall Grass.
It’ll serve as an adaptation of the 2012 novella of the same name which was written as a collaboration between genre master Stephen King and his son Joe Hill.
Stopping for a break on a cross country road trip, Becky (Laysla De Oliveria) and Cal (Harrison Gilbertson) venture into the titular field upon hearing a young boy cry for help.
They immediately become separated and totally disoriented by the sinister force contained within which won’t allow them to escape.
Although it’s premise does sound rather strange, it’s definitely an original idea and the trailer does manage to successfully paint an eerie, haunting atmosphere
Shots of the towering grass closing in give a sense of intense claustrophobia and while there’s no clues given as to the kind of evil their facing, shots of a creepy church suggest some kind of demonic force.
In the Tall Grass was written and directed by Vincenzo Natali who’s also responsible for cult 90s classic Cube and sci-fi horror Splice.
“Who would think that grass could be frightening?” Natali said when the project was first announced. “Trust Stephen King and Joe Hill to find a way. They have transformed an otherwise innocuous Kansas field into a stage for some of the most disturbing horror fiction I have ever read.”
Viewers can stream In the Tall Grass from 4th October on Netflix.
