A new clip for horror film Antebellum just debuted online from Lionsgate. The film was moved off of its original release date of April 24th for obvious reasons by Lionsgate, and it continued to slide down the release calendar for quite a while. It will now release on VOD platforms on September 18th, skipping theaters, although I would not be surprised to see it sneak into a few or the drive-ins. Antebellum, by Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz, stars Janelle Monae, Marque Richardson II, Eric Lang, Jack Huston, Kiersey Clemons, Tongayi Chirisa, Gabourey Sidibe, Rob Aramayo, Lily Cowles and Jena Malone. Check out the new clip below.
Antebellum Is Highly Anticipated
"Successful author Veronica Henley (Janelle Monáe) finds herself trapped in a horrifying reality and must uncover the mind-bending mystery before it's too late. ANTEBELLUM is a terrifying new thriller from the producer of the acclaimed films GET OUT and US, and groundbreaking directors Gerard Bush and Christoper Renz (Bush+Renz) – an exciting new voice in filmmaking."
For a couple of guys who come from commercials, they certainly seem to have created some old school style horror here. For sure, getting some Jordan Peele vibes off of this one, but the cast is excellent, and Monae is such a treasure that I will end up spending the whole film terrified for her safety. This one has massive breakout potential written all over it and should get some great buzz as people start to see it. Antebellum was highly anticipated when announced and is still near the top of most horror fans must-see lists. While it is not getting the theatrical push that it most likely deserves, it will still be seen, and that is all that matters. Catch it on VOD platforms on September 18th.
