As we continue to grow as a site, we’re seeing a lot of the same fans frequent the site, comment on articles and drop us feedback on Facebook. It’s great to be expanding in such fashion, because you’re all going to begin to understand the kind of flicks that float my boat.
Grim thrillers, for example, may not be outright horror films, but they exist on that same plane, and I’ve got a soft spot for them in my heart, no doubt about it.
The latest film of such nature, Detour, looks like it may end up being one of the more emotional and taut thrillers to see release next year. If that sounds like something you can wrap your head around, then you should probably take a look at the brand new trailer. It looks creepy, and with Magnet behind the release, you know it isn’t going to be for the faint of heart.
Get a look at the trailer debut below.
The brilliant Christopher Smith, who treated us to riveting works Creep, Severance, Triangle and Black Death will write and direct the film.
Tye Sheridan, Emory Cohen, Stephen Moyer, John Lynch, Bel Powley and Jared Abrahamson star.
The film hits theaters and VOD on January 20th, 2017.

Angry, intent on revenge and fuelled by alcohol, Harper agrees to the deal and spends the rest of his evening downing shots with Johnny Ray. The next morning, Harper awakes to the mother of all hangovers with hazy memory of the previous night’s events. Answering a knock at the front door, he is surprised to find Johnny Ray and his beautiful but distant girlfriend, Cherry, ready and waiting to drive to Vegas to kill Vincent. Harper’s claims that he was drunk and didn’t know what he was doing mean nothing to Johnny Ray who is more threatening than ever in the cold light of day. Harper quickly realises that there is no easy way out…
