First Trailer for In the Tall Grass Gets Spooky

Nothing is what it seems in the first look at Netflix’s upcoming thriller, In the Tall Grass, and it makes for one very unsettling trailer. 

There’s a lot of craziness going on in this first trailer for In the Tall Grass. The upcoming Netflix film is based on a novella from Stephen King and Joe Hill, both of whom have a penchant for making the mundane seem absolutely terrifying:

I’m getting a distinct Blair Witch vibe out of this trailer, and I mean that in the best way possible. There’s a lot going on here between the weird time vortex of the grass, supernatural elements, and a creepy child running about. In all, this trailer sets an excellent tone and I’m eager to see more.

When siblings Becky and Cal hear the cries of a young boy lost within a field of tall grass, they venture in to rescue him, only to become ensnared themselves by a sinister force that quickly disorients and separates them. Cut off from the world and unable to escape the field’s tightening grip, they soon discover that the only thing worse than getting lost is being found. Based on the novella by Stephen King and Joe Hill.

In the Tall Grass hits Netflix on October 4, 2019.
