A24, the studio behind chilling masterpieces like Hereditary and 2023’s major hit Talk to Me – whose sequel has already been announced – is ready to instill fear in fans again. They have just unveiled the chilling new trailer for the horror film I Saw the TV Glow.

The recently released trailer hints at a blend of classic horror with contemporary anxieties. We witness a group of teenagers stumble upon a long-forgotten TV show. Each episode showcases a different monstrous threat. As their fascination grows with the show, a horrifying truth emerges – the line between fiction and reality begins to blur, with the horrors on screen spilling into their lives.

A Modern Echo of Classic Horror

The film takes inspiration from the 1982 classic Poltergeist, where a seemingly harmless television set becomes a conduit for malevolent spirits. However, I Saw the TV Glow goes beyond the haunted technology trope. It offers more than just familiar jump scares. The film weaves contemporary themes of sexuality, gender identity, and social anxieties into its chilling narrative.

A Visionary Director and Critical Acclaim

Written and directed by Jane Schoenbrun, known for the critically acclaimed 2021 film We’re All Going to the World’s Fair, I Saw the TV Glow is already generating buzz. Having premiered at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival, the film has garnered impressive reviews. It currently boasts a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

A Talented Cast 

I Saw the TV Glow features a rising star cast, including Justice Smith (Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves) and Brigette Lundy-Paine (“Atypical”), alongside Ian Foreman, Helena Howard, and Danielle Deadwyler. Additionally, the film boasts intriguing guest appearances by musicians Caroline Polachek, Phoebe Bridgers, and Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst.

Mark your calendars and get ready for chills and thrills. I Saw the TV Glow hits theaters on May 3rd, 2024.
