A clip from the Seth Rogen-produced horror film Cobweb offers a preview of a scene involving an awkward house visit
Four and a half years ago, Lionsgate – a studio that had once been a prominent force in the horror genre, with releases like The Devil’s Rejects, Cabin Fever, the Hostel films, and of course the Saw franchise – announced that they were developing a genre project called Cobweb with the intention of taking back their “ownership” of horror. We’re now just one week away from having the chance to see the finished film, as Cobweb will be receiving a theatrical release on July 21st… and now a clip from the movie has arrived online, offering a preview of an awkward house visit scene. You can check it out in the embed above.
Directed by Samuel Bodin, who created Netflix’s short-lived French horror series Marianne, from a screenplay by Chris Thomas Devlin (Leatherface), Cobweb has the following synopsis: Eight-year-old Peter is plagued by a mysterious, constant tap, tap from inside his bedroom wall – a tapping that his parents insist is all in his imagination. As Peter’s fear intensifies, he believes that his parents could be hiding a terrible, dangerous secret and questions their trust. And for a child, what could be more frightening than that?
We previously saw a synopsis that said a boy’s abusive parents have always told him the voices he hears in the walls of his house are only in his head. But when he discovers that they’re real, he conspires to let them out.
The film stars Lizzy Caplan (Fatal Attraction), Antony Starr (The Boys), Cleopatra Coleman (Infinity Pool), and Woody Norman (C’mon C’mon).
Cobweb was produced by Point Grey’s Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver, along with Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee. Vertigo’s Andrew Childs serves as executive producer with Jonathan McCoy and Josh Fagen, who oversaw the project for Point Grey. Jim Miller and Meredith Wieck oversaw the project for Lionsgate. Rogen isn’t an obvious producer for an intense horror project, but we’re also living in a world where Kevin Smith made a horror movie about a man being surgically turned into a walrus and where Danny McBride has co-written three Halloween sequels.
