Hands down, this is one of the best trailers you will see today, or this month. Southbound teases a fresh and exciting take on the anthology horror film where all the stories are set on the same stretch of road. There is a strong sense of unease present throughout the trailer which slowly builds with its rising music and tension, before all hell breaks loose before the closing manic moments. This is definitely a trailer that will benefit from a couple of watches as there are many moments that you’ll miss with the blink of an eye.
Southbound comes from the creators of anthology horror V/H/S and directors Roxanne Benjamin, David Bruckner, Patrick Horvath and Radio Silence. The film will be receiving a limited theatrical release in the USA on 5th February, before being released on VOD on 9th February courtesy of Orchard.
On a desolate stretch of road, weary travellers — two men on the run from their past, a band on their way to the next gig, a man struggling to get home, a brother in search of his long-lost sister and a family on vacation — are forced to confront their worst fears and darkest secrets in these interwoven tales of terror and remorse on the open road.
If you like Lynchian terrors, supernatural activity and an unpredictable and unique indie flick, then Southbound should be right up your street. Excuse us, while we give the trailer another watch.
