A sadistic hunter (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan) sets his sights on human prey in the borderlands between US and Mexico in the new trailer for Jonás Cuarón's Desierto.

Synopsis: "From Jonás Cuarón and Alfonso Cuarón, the acclaimed filmmakers of Gravity, comes a unique, modern vision of terror. Desierto is a visceral, heart-pounding suspense-thriller packed with tension and suspense from start to finish, starring Gael García Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries and Y Tu Mamá También) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen).

What begins as a hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a harrowing and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S.-Mexican border. In the harsh, unforgiving desert terrain, the odds are stacked firmly against them as they continuously discover there’s nowhere to hide from the unrelenting, merciless killer."

Directed by Jonás Cuarón (co-writer of Gravity) from a screenplay he co-wrote with Mateo García Elizondo, Desierto stars Gael García Bernal, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Alondra Hidalgo. STX Entertainment will release the horror thriller in theaters on October 14th.
