Frightening First Trailer for Ridley Scott’s “The Terror” Sets Sail!

AMC revealed this morning that Ridley Scott’s “The Terror” will premiere on March 26, 2018, while also sharing this eerie teaser trailer.

Starring Jared Harris (“The Crown”) and Tobias Menzies (“Outlander”), “The Terror” is set in 1847, when a Royal Naval expedition crew searching for the Northwest Passage is attacked by a mysterious predator that stalks the ships and their crew in a suspenseful and desperate game of survival.

The rest of the cast includes Ciarán Hinds (Justice League) as Sir John Franklin; Paul Ready (Cuffs) as Dr. Henry Goodsir; Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette) as Cornelius Hickey Nive Nielsen (The New World) as Lady Silence; Ian Hart (Neverland) as Thomas Blanky; and Trystan Gravelle (Mr. Selfridge) as Henry Collins.

The Terror captures a rare combination of fascinating history, complex and flawed characters, the inextinguishable human spirit and the horror and promise of an uncharted world,” said executive producers and co-showrunners David Kajganich (A Bigger Splash) and Soo Hugh  (The Whispers) in a statement. “We are looking forward to bringing viewers into this world in March.”

The 10-episodes series, which is based on Dan Simmons’ novel, is also executive produced by David W. Zuker (The Good Wife), Alexandra Milchan (The Wolf of Wall Street), Scott Lambert (Jane Got a Gun), and Guymon Casady (Game of Thrones). It’s produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions and Entertainment 360 in association with AMC Studios.

  • Jack Thompson

    Fuck yes! I’ve been waiting years for this show.

    Loved the book.

    • Jeff Eastwood

      I started reading it but ended up giving up on it about halfway through.

  • Joe D’Elia

    Someone needs to adapt Dan Simmon’s “Summer of Night.” Now that’s horror!

  • J Jett

    this looks freaking awesome!

    • GunsOfNavarone

      It gave me The Thing vibes, I love horror movies based in the arctic / snowy settings.

      • J Jett

        same here! actually for the most part i’m a huge fan of many/most horror movies (or thrillers) set in snowy landscapes. there’s just something very isolating/lonely about the winter and that adds immensely to a film’s ambiance/atmosphere.

        • GunsOfNavarone

          Same ! I always wanted them to base a whole Predator movie in the arctic. We got a glimpse of what one would be like in Alien Vs Predator but it was only brief. I also loved the tv show Fortitude which is a horror / thriller set in snowy Iceland, I’d recommend it if you haven’t seen it.

  • Baron Von Marlon

    Sounds great.

  • Necro

    It seems Ridley does better with everything that’s not ‘Alien’ related!

    • J Jett

      i know, right? 🙂
