Perhaps the most interesting thing about The Empty Man is it's one of the remaining relics of 20th Century Fox before it merged with Disney. And perhaps even more, it's a film that Disney is quietly releasing in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, fully aware it won't be a huge hit. Course, being a horror film, it probably won't take much to be a hit anyway. The synopsis is as follows:
After a group of teens from a small Midwestern town begin to mysteriously disappear, the locals believe it is the work of an urban legend known as The Empty Man. As a retired cop investigates and struggles to make sense of the stories, he discovers a secretive group and their attempts to summon a horrific, mystical entity, and soon his life—and the lives of those close to him—are in grave danger.
Today, the official trailer for the film has been released. Check it out below:
The Empty Man stars James Badge Dale, Marin Ireland, Stephen Root, Ron Canada, Robert Aramayo, Joel Courtney, and Sasha Frolova. It is written and directed by David Prior. It is set to be released by October 23, 2020.
