The film follows two adult siblings that head into a field of tall grass they hear the cries of a young lost boy. They’re soon disoriented and completely lost, with a terrifying force that appears to be closing in on them.
It’s a good trailer, making this look like a tense and very creepy adaptation of a book that is said to hold some pretty twisted turns. I haven’ read the book, but if you have and are wondering if this film will tackle that messed up ending, apparently it will.
The film is directed and written by Vincenzo Natali, who broke out with ’97 cult hit Cube and has gone on to direct shows such as Hannibal and Westworld and films such as Cypher and Splice.
In the Tall Grass, starring Harrison Gilbertson, Laysia De Oliveria, Avery Whitted, Will Bule Jr., Rachel Wilson, and Patrick Wilson, hits Netflix on October 4.
