When Relativity Media handed its Crow reboot over to Corin Hardy, the Internet was understandably dubious, given that the helmer’s debut feature hadn’t even landed at the time. However, now that Hardy’s freshman frightener, originally titled The Woods but now known as The Hallow, has debuted its first trailer, it’s easy to see why the studio was so confident – because this thing looks absolutely terrifying.
Following a Londoner (Game of Thrones‘ Joseph Mawle) who resettles in a seemingly perfect Irish village with his beautiful wife (Bojana Novakovic), The Hallow takes inspiration from the creature features of old. Essentially, the set-in-their-ways townspeople are none-too-happy about the newcomers not honoring the vague “traditions” of the forest abridging their new home, and things get consequently pretty hairy. Seeing as the trailer specifically references “faeries, banshees and baby eaters,” I’m not predicting a particularly happy childhood for the young tot that the movie’s central couple carts into the titular hallow.
This is your warning that, should you want to sleep tonight, the trailer for The Hallow probably isn’t for you. Buzz out of Sundance was definitely warranted from the looks of it, and though no U.S. date has been set, the pic will go the theater route in the U.K. on November 13.
