Starring Let Me In and Kick-Ass‘ Chloe Grace Moretz, alongside Terminator: Salvation and Clash of the Titans star Sam Worthington, it’s hard to ignore Anchor Bay Films’ forthcoming Texas Killing Fields, the Ami Canaan Mann-directed thriller arriving in limited theaters on October 14.
In MTV’s first clip from the movie, watch as Anne (Moretz), a local girl from a troubled home, goes head-to-head against Detective Heigh, who’s clearly concerned for her safety. But based on her talk–and true to Moretz form–it seems like Anne can take care of herself just fine… but looks, as they say, can be deceiving.
Directed by Ami Canaan Mann, daughter of acclaimed Director Michael Mann, the thriller is inspired by true events and “follows a local homicide detective (Sam Worthington) in a small Texan town and his partner, a transplanted cop from New York City (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) as they track a sadistic serial killer dumping his victims’ mutilated bodies in a nearby marsh locals call ‘The Killing Fields.’
The killer changes the game and begins hunting the detectives, teasing them with possible clues at the crime scenes while always remaining one step ahead. When a familiar local girl, Anne (Chloe Grace Moretz) goes missing the detectives find themselves in a race against time to find the killer and save her life.”
