"Grass. It's just grass." Readers of Stephen King and Joe Hill's novella In the Tall Grass know that statement doesn't apply to the sinister field by the roadside that has a way of drawing folks in... and not letting them out. With Vincenzo Natali's adaptation of In the Tall Grass coming to Netflix this October (following its world premiere at Fantastic Fest), the official trailer for the film has been unleashed, reminding viewers that "some places have a mind of their own."

Below, you can watch the trailer for In the Tall Grass, which made Heather Wixson's list of 15 films we're excited to see this year at Fantastic Fest.

Written and directed By Vincenzo Natali, and based on the 2012 novella by Stephen King and Joe Hill, In the Tall Grass stars Harrison Gilbertson, Laysla De Oliveira, Avery Whitted, Will Buie Jr., Rachel Wilson, and Patrick Wilson.

Produced by Steven Hoban, Mark Smith, Jimmy Miller, and M. Riley, the film will be available to stream on Netflix beginning October 4th.

"Some places have a mind of their own.

Based on the novella by Stephen King and Joe Hill, when siblings Becky and Cal hear the cries of a young boy lost within a field of tall grass, they venture in to rescue him, only to become ensnared themselves by a sinister force that quickly disorients and separates them. Cut off from the world and unable to escape the field’s tightening grip, they soon discover that the only thing worse than getting lost is being found."
