Flying Demons Are Probably The Least Unsettling Thing In This Creepy New Horror Movie

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

The great thing about a horror anthology film is if you aren’t scared by one segment, odds are the next one will get you. That won’t happen with Southbound though because, as you can see in the first trailer, all four of the segments are ultra creepy.


Directed by Radio Silence, Roxanne Benjamin, David Bruckner and Patrick Horvath, Southbound will hit limited theaters on February 5 and then on demand February 9. It tells four tangentially related stories centered on a nondescript, desolate setting.

There are the guys being hunted by flying demons, the girls who end up in a place they don’t want to be, the driver trying to save a young girl’s life, and the family just enjoying some nice time together. None of those situations turn out particularly well—and over the course of the movie, you’ll continue to be shocked and scared by the places the filmmakers go. We’ve seen it and recommend it unreservedly.

I cannot stand anthology films—especially the V/H/S series—because they all have one universal flaw: only one out of every story featured is worth watching. In the first V/H/S, the very first story—the one about the bros picking up a lamia/daemon chick—was fantastic...but the rest were insultingly stupid and cliched. I can already call it with this one: the story about the floating skeleton-daemons is going to be excellent, but the others are going to be unbearable. At least in V/H/S, the lamia story was first, so I can easily revisit it when I want, then just shut off the rest of the dumbness.
