Lionsgate’s horror movie ‘Cobweb’ drops new trailer

Don't miss

Horror fans are in for a real treat today since, in addition to releasing the terrifying new Cobweb teaser, Lionsgate also unveiled a brand-new poster. The graphic centres on a young boy’s nightmare in his very own home of horrors, teasing the goosebumps-inducing creepiness of the movie directed by Samuel Bodin (T.A.N.K.)

Peter, played by Woody Norman, is depicted in the poster dozing off on his bed. He has no idea that a dark force is leaning over his body, gripping him firmly in a ghostly hand with long, pointed claws. 

What fans can expect from The terrifying movie ‘Cobweb’?

It makes sense that today’s poster would focus on Peter’s room, which is supposed to be his safe haven, given what we’ve learned about the terror of Cobweb. A background window lets light into the room, while a clock shows the time as 11:21. The numbers on the clock are difficult to miss, even though they might not be significant to the plot of the movie.

Collider stated that Cobweb introduces Lizzy Caplan and Antony Starr as the parents of Peter, a youngster who hears a mysterious tapping coming from behind his walls and promises to keep viewers wondering right up until the very end. His parents are initially caring and supportive, but their patience quickly wears thin as they grow increasingly fed up with their son’s nightmares. Fortunately, the boy’s teacher Miss Devine (Cleopatra Coleman) notices that something is wrong with the kid and his family, which prompts her to look into the family herself. The movie’s logo, “Sooner or later, family secrets creep out,” serves as a warning that not everything in a home is as it seems.

Who are in the upcoming horror movie Cobweb?

Bodin made his long-awaited feature film debut with Cobweb, which he wrote the screenplay for after Chris Thomas Devlin took over the story-writing duties. Roy Lee, along with Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen, Andrew Childs, Josh Fagen, and James Weaver, produces blockbusters like Barbarian and It. Bodin made sure his first picture had a lethal cast, including Starr from The Boys and The Covenant, Emmy Award nominee Caplan (Masters of Sex, Fatal Attraction), and Coleman, who most recently introduced a new type of dread in Infinity Pool. Then there is Norman, who, at the age of just fourteen, was just nominated for a BAFTA for his portrayal in Mike Mills’ drama, C’mon C’mon.

 Cobweb hits theatres on July 21 and will face off against Greta Gerwig’s Barbie at the box office.
