Have you ever had a TV show really draw you in? Or watched something supposedly for kids that actually seemed way too scary? Then you’ll appreciate the vibe of I Saw The TV Glow.

The new horror movie from A24 sees two teenagers bond over their love for a supernatural TV show. But things escalate when the lines between television and reality start to blur.

Check out the trailer for I Saw The TV Glow below.

The trailer introduces us to a premise that feels straight out of an internet creepypasta. There’s a nostalgic, almost Goosebumps-type spooky energy here. But like if David Lynch made Goosebumps. Personally, I hope this movie makes us scared of TV sets again like we haven’t been since Poltergeist and The Ring.

Here’s the official synopsis for I Saw The TV Glow from A24:

Teenager Owen is just trying to make it through life in the suburbs when his classmate introduces him to a mysterious late-night TV show — a vision of a supernatural world beneath their own. In the pale glow of the television, Owen’s view of reality begins to crack.

The film stars Justice Smith, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Ian Foreman, Helena Howard, Fred Durst, and Danielle Deadwyler. Jane Schoenbrun (We’re All Going to the World’s Fair) wrote and directed the feature.

“At least for me, these glimpses of other worlds through a screen in childhood were often signals of some form of magic or otherness or possibility hidden in a way on the margins of the normative world that I was growing up in, that made some kind of promise to me,”  Schoenbrun told The Hollywood Reporter following the film’s Berlin festival debut. “I think, especially in our media-saturated environment, we’re looking to the glow of the screen and we’re looking to fiction to help define our understanding of reality.”

The film also features new music by a number of artists, including Phoebe Bridgers, Alex G, King Woman, Snail Mail, Caroline Polachek, and more.
