The first trailer for director Courtney Paige’s upcoming The Sinners looks to mix contemporary folk horror with the world of slashers.
The synopsis for The Sinners goes like this:
Seven schoolgirls, part of a clique dubbed The Sins, become the lethal target of an unknown killer after a harmless prank goes horribly wrong.
We are loving the approach that we see in the trailer. In 80’s and 90’s slashers there was an enormous through line that would constantly see the world of a “prank gone wrong”. It’s something that I have been missing in my horror diet. The added bonus here is that The Sinners is combining a dash of folk horror into the mix.
The Sinners stars Kaitlyn Bernard, Brenna Coates, Brenna Llewellyn, Aleks Paunovic, Lochlyn Munro, Michael Eklund, and Tahmoh Pinikett.
