A horror film directed by Seth Rogen hits theaters next month
A trailer for the horror film Cobweb (starring Lizzy Caplan, directed by Samuel Bodin, produced by Seth Rogen) is now online
Four and a half years ago, Lionsgate – a studio that had once been very prominent in the horror genre, with releases like The Devil Denies, Cabin Fever, the Hostel movies, and of course the Saw franchise – they announced that they were developing a so-called genre project Cobweb with the intention of restoring the “possession” of terror. We will have the opportunity to see just how impressive and immature the film was when it was Cobweb getting a theatrical release on it July 21and with that date just a month away, a trailer for the film has arrived online. You can watch it in the bed above.
Directed by Samuel Bodin, creator of Netflix’s short-lived French horror series Mariannefrom a screenplay by Chris Thomas Devlin (Leather face), Cobweb it has the following summary: Eight-year-old Peter is haunted by a mysterious, constant tapping from inside his bedroom wall – a tapping that his parents say is all his imagination. As Peter’s fears intensify, he believes that his parents may be hiding a terrible, dangerous secret and questions their trust. And for a child, what could be more frightening than that?
We have previously seen a summary that said a boy’s abusive parents have always told him that the voices he hears in the walls of his house are only in his head. But when he finds out that they are true, he is forced to let them out.
The film stars Lizzy Caplan.Fatal attraction),
Anthony Starr (The Boys), Cleopatra Coleman (Infinity pool), and Woody Norman (This is C’mon).
Cobweb produced by Point Grey’s Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver, along with Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee. Vertigo’s Andrew Childs is an executive producer along with Jonathan McCoy and Josh Fagen, who helmed the project for Point Grey. Jim Miller and Meredith Wieck helmed the project for Lionsgate. Rogen is not an obvious producer of a horror horror project, but we also live in a world where Kevin Smith made a horror film about a man turned into a walrus and wrote Danny McBride three. Halloween sequels.
Cobweb looks good to me. What do you think of the trailer? Do you think Lionsgate’s attempt to reclaim ownership of the horror genre looks like a success? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
