The end of one family’s summer turns dark quickly in this exclusive trailer for “What We Become,” a Danish horror film from first-time director Bo Mikkelsen. The trailer begins with an idyllic end-of-summer scene filled with pictures of sunshine and romance before abruptly changing in tone and becoming a fight for survival. 

“What We Become” tells the story of a family who is forced into quarantine as the death toll rises from what is believed to be an aggressive strain of the flu. However, the family soon realizes that what’s killing their neighbors is not the flu and that help is not going to come if they remain inside. 

The film will screen at Fantastic Fest on September 27, with additional screenings planned at the BFI and Sitges film festivals. Watch the trailer above.
