The first teaser trailer for director Alfonso Cuarón‘s new film, Gravity, has hit, and it’s a fantastic first look.

“In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.” Starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas, and Elizabeth Blackmore.

The creators’ goal of the film is to create a more realistic lycanthropic horror story that sharply contrasts the empty and emotionless trend of vampire films that have recently gained favor.
