Netflix has released a trope-packed trailer for the upcoming horror-comedy Little Evil starring Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) and Evangeline Lilly (Lost).
The horror parody follows a man named Gary who just married the woman of his dreams. However, it turns out her son, his new stepson, is the antichrist. Conceived during a 20s-faze in a doomsday cult, it appears as if his new stepchild child has risen from hell and is ready to set fire to some clowns and bring on the end of the world.
“You told me that was normal, that all kids are dicks”
“That’s true, kids are dicks man. But this is a different level. He’s like top of the dick chain bro.”
The trailer is jam-packed with horror tropes taking a jibe at the 1982 film Poltergeist with some ominous TV static, as well as poking-fun at horror’s fascination with creepy cornfields.
Little Evil hails from Eli Craig director of Zombieland and Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. In addition to Scott and Lilly, the trailer features appearances from Bridget Everett (Patti Cake$, Trainwreck) and Donald Faison (Scrubs).
The Netflix horror comedy premieres on Netflix September 1. Check out the trailer below:
