Terrifying new trailer for Southbound, the horror anthology from the V/H/S team

If you’ve been looking for a terrifying way to usher in 2016, this should do the trick.

A trailer for the new horror anthology Southbound has been released, offering up a horrific peek at the terror awaiting a group of folks on a lonely stretch of highway. The film is directed by Radio Silence, Roxanne Benjamin, David Bruckner and Patrick Horvath, some of the team behind the V/H/S horror franchise. It tells five connected stories and definitely looks to be in that same vein as V/H/S, though arguably a bit more inviting for general horror fans (in a good way).

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:

On a desolate stretch of desert highway, weary travelers—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.

Southbound has scored a good bit of critical buzz in the lead-up to its February release, having debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival and screened at Fantastic Fest. Who knows, it could be a nice palate cleanser before superhero insanity hits in March with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:


Southbound is set for a limited theatrical opening on Feb. 5 and then be available on demand Feb. 9.
