The year of Stephen King continues. After Pet Sematary and It Chapter Two and before Doctor Sleep, another one of his adaptations will be arriving–this time on Netflix. In the Tall Grass, based on the 2012 novella by King and his son Joe Hill, is written and directed by Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice). Ahead of a Fantastic Fest premiere, Netflix has now unveiled the first trailer and poster.
The story centers on a group who enter a large field to rescue a boy only to find more sinister forces at work. With touches of the disorientation found in Annihilation and no shortage of frightening imagery from the twisted mind of Natali, hopefully this is a horror stand-out this fall. Starring Harrison Gilbertson, Laysla De Oliveira, Avery Whitted, Will Buie Jr., Rachel Wilson, and Patrick Wilson, see the trailer and poster below.
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.
