With SDCC underway the trailers and information is coming in fast and furious – and one of the first bits of horror information to roll in is the trailer debut for NIX – coming at us from director Anthony C. Ferrante, the man behind the whole SHARKNADO craze of the last several years.
This time around, it seems that he is settling in to tell a good ole fashion horror tale – and the trailer seems to prove that fact.
From the press release:
“Inspired by Germanic folklore, the story of Nix follows a tragedy at a mysterious lake and its frightening consequences as a shattered family unravels the truth.
Dee Wallace, an established film icon with roles in Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Cujo, The Frighteners, and Steven Spielberg’s E.T., stars as the family’s matriarch. The movie also features Skyler Caleb (Waking), Angie Teodora Dick (Zombie Tidal Wave), and introduces Niesha Renee Guilbot.
Anthony C. Ferrante directed the worldwide phenomenon, Sharknado and the subsequent sequels. This will be his first dramatic horror film since the 2005 hit Boo.
“Once we landed on the concept of Nix and realized its potential, I was excited to return to my horror roots with this elevated, original horror movie,” said Ferrante. “It was also a chance to dig deep into these fractured, haunted characters and explore the depth and emotion within this dark setting while still delivering solid thrills and chills. I’m very proud of the film we created and excited to work with 1091 Pictures to unleash it this fall just in time for Halloween.”
Cast wise – we’ve got James Zimbardi, Dee Wallace, and Michael Pare.
The film will hit all major digital outlets on Sept. 27th.
Plan on adding it to your Halloween season watch list.
