The previous teasers for The Blackcoat's Daughter director Osgood Perkins' next feature, Longlegs, have been very effective in building an aura of unsettling dread around the mysterious horror flick, but this latest trailer really takes things to another level.

Though the movie is still playing things relatively close to the chest when it comes to revealing specific plot details, this footage does give us a little more to go on, as rookie FBI agent Lee Harker (It Follows star Maika Monroe) becomes obsessed with tracking down a sadistic serial killer (Nicolas Cage) who targets families - and might just have supernatural abilities.

Harker has a personal connection to the killer (did she survive an earlier attack?), which leads her down an even darker path and into the world of the Occult.

Say your prayers, check out the new trailer and poster below along with the initial social media reactions, and let us know what you think in the comments section. 

“FBI Agent Lee Harker (Monroe) is a gifted new recruit assigned to the unsolved case of an elusive serial killer (Cage). As the case takes complex turns, unearthing evidence of the occult, Harker discovers a personal connection to the merciless killer and must race against time to stop him before he claims the lives of another innocent family.”

Nicolas Cage is also on board as a producer along with his production company Saturn Films (The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, Pig), Dan Kagan (Significant Other), Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Insidious), Dave Caplan (The End We Start From) and Chris Ferguson (Child’s Play).

Longlegs is rated R for “Bloody violence, disturbing images and some language," and also stars Alicia Witt (The Walking Dead) and Blair Underwood (American Crime Story).

The movie is set to hit theaters on July 12. Will you be seeing this one opening weekend?

I slept fine but I’m hyped for this. Marketing has been top tier so far.

Wow, impressive cinematography here with the brilliant use of composition and framing. The use anamorphic lenses to create that narrowing effect. Every shot makes you feel distant/isolated from the subject regardless of how close they are to the camera. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Cage play a villain before so that’s incentive for me to watch this. I also haven’t seen Cage in anything recently, (the flash doesn’t count lol) Im behind on his current filmography. Will definitely check this out.

If you don't know who Castor Troy is, do yourself a favor and go watch Face/Off

@SATW42 - 🤦🏿‍♂️ I don’t know how I forgot face/off lol. Of course I’ve seen it. Got it on blu-Ray and I’ve probably watched it more times then you. Aside from that I can’t think of anything else. Was he the villain in Mandy?

@TheMetaMan - No, he was the protagonist in Mandy, which, yeah, if yo haven't seen that, bump it to the top of your list.

@TheMetaMan - Aside from Face Off obviously, Mom and Dad / Dracula in Renfield come to mind. Maybe Bad Lieutenant depending on how you look at it.

Honestly though, he’s made over 100 films at this point so there could certainly be more out there.

Glad to see horror making a comeback with these sleeper hits. As awful as Terrifier 2 was, I'm glad it reignited the Slasher Genre train.

Saw this at Planet of the Apes. It kinda made me feel like I may not be able to buy Maika Monroe as a FBI agent. I never once doubted Jodie Foster in Silence of the Lambs (this film low-key feels like a borderline NEON remake) but Monroe feels like she's playing Monroe in this trailer specifically. I hope I'm wrong and I can completely buy in as the teasers and marketing material prior to this have been amazing and Cage looks like he goes off in this.

Haven't seen one trailer or synopsis. I'm going in blind. Sometimes the director is all I need

That's all I need to know to avoid seeing it. I value my sleep.

Thanks for the warning!

This looks fantastic. Best trailer/teaser they have put out so far for sure. Can't wait to check it out in the theater. Only thing I am not sold on is the casting of the lead. She does not really seem to be selling the FBI agent very well. Hope that is proven to be wrong in the context of the full movie.
