Halle Berry’s new survival horror movie, Never Let Go, looks like a terrifying trip to the woods

The low-key king of the modern survival-horror movie, Alexandre Aja — who’s made movies like Crawl, Oxygen, and The Hills Have Eyes — is back with a new film staring Halle Berry. The first trailer for Never Let Go was released on Thursday, and the movie already looks like a terrifying addition to Aja’s impressive canon of people trying to survive the very bad things that are happening to them.

Never Let Go stars Berry as a mother of two twin boys. The whole family lives in the woods, way off the grid, with Berry insisting that they have to stay safe from the evil spirits that surround their cabin. One day, however, one of the boys starts to wonder if these spirits are real and sets out to discover the truth, only to get stranded in the woods, with his mother desperately trying to save him.

The trailer feels like a mix of M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village and John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place, with all the tension that combination implies. Berry’s character leads her kids into the woods, a rope tying them all together so no one gets lost, making for a pretty haunting image, and that’s not including the strange hands that reach out to grab the characters every now and then.

Along with Berry, the movie will also star Anthony B. Jenkins and Percy Daggs IV as her two sons, as well as Matthew Kevin Anderson as “The Stranger” and Stephanie Lavigne, whose character is simply called “The Evil.”

Never Let Go is set to be released in theaters on Sept. 27.
