From director Eskil Vogt (Blind) and writer Joachim Trier (The Worst Person In The World, Thelma) comes a twisted coming-of-age nightmare. The Innocents, which won the Best Directing award at Fantastic Fest 2021, has debuted its first official trailer. Bones are broken, objects are levitated, and snakes are startled in what will surely be an unhinged horror experience.

The Innocents follows four children who become friends during the summer holidays. Out of sight of the adults, they discover they have hidden powers. While exploring their newfound abilities in the nearby forests and playgrounds, their innocent play takes a dark turn, and strange things begin to happen.

The Innocents hits select theaters, and anywhere you can rent movies on May 13th, 2022.
