The newly released clip offers a glimpse into the unsettling world of Longlegs. FBI Agent Lee Harker, played by Maika Monroe (It Follows, Watcher), finds herself face-to-face with Nicolas Cage‘s (Arcadian, Mandy) twisted character for the first time. The behind-the-scenes clip also marks the first time the two actors met on set, giving their reactions an air of realism. Listening closely, you can hear Monroe’s heartbeat pounding in the background. Her heartbeat, a normal 76 BPM, jumps to a racing pace of 170 BPM.

Director Oz Perkins, known for his masterful weaving of suspense in films like The Blackcoat’s Daughter, crafts an atmosphere thick with tension. The trailer is a masterclass in building dread, filled with unsettling visuals and a haunting soundscape.

Harker, a talented rookie agent, pursues a relentless investigation into a series of terrifying murders. As she delves deeper, the case takes a shocking turn, revealing a horrifying truth that connects Harker to the killer in a way she never could have predicted.

Monroe and Cage are joined by Blair Underwood (“Quantico”) and Alicia Witt (“The Haunting”).

Don’t miss the premiere of the year’s most anticipated horror film, Longlegs. It slithers into theaters on July 12th, 2024. Buckle up for a nightmarish journey that will stay with you long after the credits roll. Get your tickets now.
