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.
