First trailer for Blumhouse horror ‘Afraid’

Powerhouse horror studio Blumhouse has unleashed a trailer for their latest horror offering, ‘Afraid’ where smart home tech takes a turn for the terrifying!. This sci-fi horror flick, written and directed by Chris Weitz (“About a Boy”), stars John Cho and Katherine Waterston as a couple who end up in a terrifying situation thanks to a seemingly helpful piece of technology.


In AFRAID, Curtis (John Cho) and his family are selected to test a revolutionary new home device: a digital family assistant called AIA. Taking smart home to the next level, once the unit and all its sensors and cameras are installed in their home, AIA seems able to do it all. She learns the family’s behaviours and begins to anticipate their needs. And she can make sure nothing – and no one – gets in her family’s way.

AFRAID opens in cinemas on August 30th
