‘Jackals’ Trailer Delivers a Slasher in the Vein of ‘The Strangers’



Blade‘s Stephen Dorff, who is also battling Leatherface this October, is starring in Jackals, a new slasher that looks like the perfect holdover until The Strangers sequel arrives next year.

Saw VI and Saw 3D: The Final Chapter director Kevin Greutert helms the ’80s-set psychological thriller that centers on an estranged family who hires a cult de-programmer (Dorff) to get back their teenage son from a murderous cult, only to find themselves under siege when the cultists surround their cabin, demanding the boy back.

Shout! Factory will release the film in limited theaters and On Demand on September 1st.

Johnathon Schaech (Day of the Dead, Prom Night, Laid to Rest), Deborah Kara Unger (Silent Hill), Ben Sullivan, Chelsea Ricketts and Nick Roux are also on board to star. Jared Rivet penned the script.
