Reluctantly, 17-year-old Gretchen leaves her American home to live with her father, who has just moved into a resort in the German Alps with his new family. Arriving at their future residence, they are greeted by Mr. König, her father’s boss, who takes an inexplicable interest in Gretchen’s mute half-sister Alma. Something doesn’t seem right in this tranquil vacation paradise. Gretchen is plagued by strange noises and bloody visions until she discovers a shocking secret that also concerns her own family.

Cuckoo is directed by Tilman Singer and stars Hunter Schafer, Jessica Henwick, Dan Stevens, Marton Csokas, and Mila Lieu. The trailer makes me think of multiple iconic films in the horror genre that surround the fears of not being believed, paranoia, and potential exclusion and isolation. The film is set to release in theaters on August 8th.

‘I Saw The TV Glow’ Trailer – Surreal Horrors

The subdued and crushingly familiar surface of the suburban existence that teenaged Owen (Justice Smith) knows all too well begins to crack the moment he encounters the late-night television program The Pink Opaque. Steeped in mysterious visions of the supernatural, the show becomes a point of bonding between him and a classmate (Brigette Lundy-Paine)—and, years later, when it’s abruptly canceled, the unnerving alternate universe it envisioned begins to seep into the duo’s everyday reality.

I Saw The TV Glow is directed and written by Jane Schoenbrun, who will appear at a member-only preview of the film on April 26th at the Metrograph Theater in NYC. The film releases in theaters on Friday May 3, 2024 (Limited) and Friday May 17, 2024 (Nationwide).
