Longlegs: Trailer Talk

While last week’s trailer showed far too much of its plot, this week’s one hardly shows anything. ‘Longlegs’ is an upcoming horror film written and directed by Oz Perkins (The Girl In The Photographs, I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House). Over the last 2 weeks, three teasers have been released for the film depicting three different scenarios: a distressed phone call from a father to emergency services exclaiming that the human in his house is not his daughter, a man killing someone at random with an axe, and an FBI officer uncovering what looks like a coffin while photographs of a murderous crime scene occasionally appear. 

The plot details have not been revealed, but the 20-40 second teasers have already sold me; they’re mysterious, tense and creepy, thanks to the visuals and the incredible sound design. Plus, it’s refreshing to have a marketing campaign in the same vein as 2008’s ‘Cloverfield’ once again, where next to nothing was revealed and word-of-mouth, as well as secrecy, reignited in the age of social media. 



I sincerely hope a full-length trailer isn’t being made for ‘Longlegs’ purely because the mystery and creepiness of the teasers are so impactful that a full trailer could potentially ruin that aspect of the marketing. I also hope the film stands up to the huge expectations that the teasers are creating.

Lee Harker, a talented new FBI agent, has been assigned to an unsolved case of a serial killer. As the investigation becomes more complicated and occult evidence is uncovered, Harker realizes a personal link to the ruthless killer and must act quickly to prevent another family murder.
