Has quarantine started to decay our brains so much that straight to DVD schlock suddenly looks like a brand new Ari Aster or Robert Eggers masterpiece? Well probably, but we thought we would share the trailer for upcoming horror flick The Jack in the Box with you anyway. Dolls and puppets are always well represented in the horror world, but we can’t think of a time when a Jack in the Box – surely one of the most nerve-wracking contraptions in the toy world – was the star of its own film.
Here’s your official synopsis:
When a vintage Jack-In-The-Box is un-earthed and donated to a museum in the heart of the woods, its not long before staff member Casey Reynolds has reason to believe the creepy clown doll inside has a life of its own. As Casey discovers his colleagues are dying one-by-one, will he find a way to end the nightmare, or will he too fall victim to the box’s curse?
The Jack in the Box is available to stream or download now.
