Longlegs Horror Trailer With Nicolas Cage Creates A Summer Buzz In Winter
The summer Horror season is still months away, but the teasers for it are already rolling (or crawling) out.
Nicolas Cage‘s latest film vehicle, Longlegs, has released its first trailer and created a buzz online.
Longlegs Teaser: Nicolas Cage and Maika Monroe Star in Neon’s Mysterious Serial Killer Horror Movie
Watch the first teaser for “Longlegs,” a new horror movie directed by Osgood Perkins, starring Maika Monroe and Nicolas Cage, out July 12 from Neon.
Leave it to Oz Perkins, the son of “Psycho” star Anthony Perkins, to stir up another cinematic nightmare. The first teaser has been released for Perkins’ so-far-so-mysterious “Longlegs,” out from Neon on July 12, with the director here officially credited as “Osgood Perkins,” also the name of the filmmaker’s grandfather.
The horror movie, which centers on an occult killing spree and one detective’s personal connection to it, stars “It Follows” scream queen Maika Monroe as an FBI agent assigned to a cold case now reawakened. But she soon uncovers a close-to-home link to the crimes, perhaps being orchestrated by Nicolas Cage as the murderer. Blair Underwood and Alicia Witt also star.
Maika Monroe Hunts Nicolas Cage‘s Dark Killer in Intense ‘Longlegs‘ Teaser
A new Longlegs teaser prepares viewers for an intense face off between Maika Monroe and Nicolas Cage.
There are so many amazing horror films to look forward to this year, but no film has been as intriguing or as cryptically scary as Longlegs from director Oz Perkins. The serial killer horror thriller stars genre icons Maika Monroe and Nicolas Cage. Those two would be hype enough for die-hard horror fans, but Longlegs’ marketing thus far has been one terrifying mystery. Now the film’s latest teaser dives head first into some thick atmospheric trauma.
While the teaser doesn’t give much in terms of plot detail, it continues Longlegs’ eerie marketing trend of simply showing off a series of disturbing sequences. All of which are extensions of the the posters that were released earlier this week. This includes a young girl waiting home alone in the snow and a family part of a deadly axe murder spree. The person tying the dreadful imagery together is Monroe’s FBI agent, Lee Harker. She’s putting the clues together to find Cage’s killer, but what she finds is something that we’ll have to wait until we get traumatized in movie theaters this summer. This short teaser establishes the morbid tone so well and, although we’ve only seen small glimpses of Cage, he will most likely go down as one of the scariest Horror villains in years.
‘Longlegs‘ Promises a New and Intriguing Approach to Horror
We have seen many serial killer horror ventures in the past with Se7en and The Silence of the Lambs, but Longlegs looks to be the next evolution of the sub-Genre in the vein of those classics. It also helps when you have two extremely talented actors, in Monroe and Cage, leading the way. This is sure to be a face-off horror fans are not going to want to miss. The other great part of this teaser news is that Longlegs finally has a release date. The horror thriller will scare its way to theaters on July 12, 2024. It’s going to be a summer full of fear and, if you dare, the teaser can be watched below.
FBI Agent Lee Harker is assigned to an unsolved serial killer case that takes unexpected turns, revealing evidence of the occult. Harker discovers a personal connection to the killer and must stop him before he strikes again.
