If you’re hitting the Toronto International Film Festival this year and looking for a break from the award contenders, prestige dramas and foreign favorites, be sure to scan the Midnight Madness lineup. Each year, it provides some of the best genre programming around, with movies geared to get your pulse racing and make you jump out of your seat. “Cub” aims to do both of those things, and we’e got the exclusive first trailer for the movie.
Directed by Jonas Govaerts, making his feature film debut, and starring Maurice Luijten, Titus De Voogdt, Stef Aerts, Evelien Bosmans and Jan Hammenecker, this one goes into the woods with terrifying results. The story follows 12-year-old Sam, off on a summer camping trip with his Cub Scout troop. He claims to see something in the woods, but it’s blamed on his over active imagination. But it turns out he’s right, and a feral child soon becomes an all too real, menacing threat.
Check out the trailer below. This has no U.S. distribution at the moment, so you’ll want to be first in line at TIFF to check it out.
