Sometimes low-budget horror films can feel like a dime a dozen, but what if one were to take place at the real Large Hadron Collider at CERN? Well that's exactly what a group of young physicists-turned-filmmakers have set out to do, and we've got the first, frightening trailer right here!

CERN, home to the Large Hadron Collider, is the leading European research facility for particle physics work. Physicists Luke Thompson, Hugo Day and Clara Nellist also noticed that the place is creepy as all get-out! So creepy, in fact, that it inspired them to rent out a few SLR cameras and get permission to make a film set there.

That film, entitled Decay, puts a fun twist on the discovery of the Higgs boson (aka the famed God Particle). In this case, the resulting radiation turns the scientists into a horde of the walking undead. Locked down in the facility with nowhere to run, the few survivors are left with no means of escape and slim chance of survival.

It's a pretty epic idea to be taken on by a few admitted amateurs, but the payoff could be incredibly scary and fun. Check out the first trailer below and let us know what you think.
