The latest Stephen King adaptation is the horror thriller In the Tall Grass. Based on King and Joe Hill's 2012 novella, this film takes place in a rural field. Here, several people lose themselves in a supernatural trap. In the Tall Grass has been shot by director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, 1997). Shot in Toronto, Netflix has just released the first trailer for the film, which stars: Patrick and Rachel Wilson, Harrison Gilbertson (Upgrade, 2018) and Laysla De Oliveira. The trailer is a good one and can be viewed below.

Natali spoke about this project back in 2015, during the film's early production. The director said of the film and its thrills: "who would think that grass could be frightening. Trust Stephen King and Joe Hill to find a way. They have transformed an otherwise innocuous Kansas field into a stage for some of the most disturbing horror fiction (UHM)." There are no exits, in the film's first trailer. As well, Natali mentioned the mysterious nature of the setting: "the field is an ineffable maze from which there is no escape." These characters are officially doomed!

Netflix has set the film's release date as October 4th. On this date, In the Tall Grass will be available in at least North American territories and possibly more. It might just be time to sign-up for this video streaming service as October promises to be another great month for horror.

Release Date: October 4th, 2019 (Netflix).

Director: Vincenzo Natali.

Writers: Joe Hill & Stephen King.

Cast: Harrison Gilbertson, Laysla De Oliveira, Avery Whitted, Will Buie Jr., Rachel Wilson and Patrick Wilson.
