Don’t Get Lost ‘In the Tall Grass’ in Trailer for Horror Film Based on Stephen King Novella (Video)

Vincenzo Natali directs movie that debuts on Netflix on Oct. 4

It’s just a field, right? That’s the entire premise to “In the Tall Grass,” a horror movie based on a Stephen King novella in which a group of people get lost in a massive, dense, grassy prairie and find themselves unable to escape.

King wrote the novella originally published in two parts in Esquire magazine in 2012 along with his son, Joe Hill. It’s the story of two inseparable siblings who hear the cries of a young boy lost within a tall field of grass. But when they venture in to rescue him, they find themselves ensnared by a sinister force that quickly disorients and separates them.

In the trailer for “In the Tall Grass,” we see the grass slicing into their ankles and the mud trapping them where they stand. And that little boy isn’t all he seems either.

“You can find things. But it’s easier once they’re dead,” the boy says to one of the poor, lost souls in the field.

Vincenzo Natali, who directed “Cube” and several episodes of “Hannibal,” “Westworld” and “The Strain,” writes and directs the horror movie. Patrick Wilson stars alongside Harrison Gilbertson, Laysla De Oliveira, Avery Whitted, Will Buie Jr. and Rachel Wilson. Steven Hoban, Mark Smith, Jimmy Miller and M. Riley are the producers.

Watch the trailer for “In the Tall Grass” above, and venture over to Netflix when it debuts on the service on Oct. 4. Just don’t get lost along the way.
