We’re nearing Halloween season — the season for chills, thrills, and jumpscares. Yet despite this fact there certainly seems to be a definite lack of horror fare heading to theaters in the coming month, and with the delay of the film Rings, the only real contenders are 31, Ouija: Origin of Evil, and (most terrifyingly) Boo! A Madea Halloween.

While this year has been a definite win for horror, for some reason, this October is totally lacking. This next trailer for the upcoming horror flick, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, doesn’t necessarily make things any better for this Halloween, but it certainly seems it could add to the long list of strong scary movies for the year as a whole.

Check it out below!

The movie is directed by Trollhunter director André Øvredal — and if you haven’t seen that gem yet, I highly recommend you do so now — and seems like another solid film from the relatively new talent.

Below is the official synopsis for the film:

“Experienced coroner Tommy Tilden and his grown-up son Austin run a family-owned morgue and crematorium in Virginia. When the local Sheriff brings in an emergency case — an unknown female corpse nicknamed ‘Jane Doe’, found in the basement of a home where a multiple homicide took place — it seems like just another open-and-shut case. But as the autopsy proceeds, these seasoned professionals are left reeling as each layer of their inspection brings frightening new revelations. Perfectly preserved on the outside, Jane Doe’s insides have been scarred, charred and dismembered — seemingly the victim of a horrific yet mysterious ritualistic torture. As Tommy and Austin begin to piece together these gruesome discoveries, an unnatural force takes hold of the crematorium. While a violent storm rages above ground, it seems the real horrors lie on the inside…”

Headlining the film are Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch, who play the owners of the family-run morgue. 

The film hits theaters on December 21, 2016.
