Creepy Trailer for Dennis Quaid's Horror Film The Horsemen
by Alex Billington
January 20, 2009
Focus Features has debuted the trailer for their upcoming horror film The Horsemen. I'm going to say, this looks really freakin' creepy. I think that part with that silver bowl that's sitting out in the snow just seems like a perfectly weird and scary start. I don't even know what's in it, but I expect it'll be very crazy. Dennis Quaid stars as a detective who discovers a shocking connection between himself and the suspects in a serial killing spree linked to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. More qualified horror fans need to give this trailer and shot and tell me if it actually does look any good? Or if it's yet another horror disaster?
Watch the trailer for The Horsemen:
Fore more info on the film, head to the official website: teamworld.it/thehorsemen/
The Horsemen is directed by Swedish filmmaker Jonas Åkerlund, a big music video director with credits like Prodigy's "Smack My Bitch Up". His directorial debut was on a film called Spun from 2002, but this is his second feature film. The screenplay was written by Dave Callaham, of Doom previously as well as the upcoming Tell-Tale. Focus Features will debut The Horsemen in theaters on March 13th early this year.

So far, so standard. Seems like another whodunit and why with a splash of gore.... NEXT!

This is being touted as a horror movie? Looks more like a suspense thriller to me. Along the lines of "Se7en" which is cool because I like movies like that.

Didn't give me shit... Quaid will be dead by the end of the movie... and I will be asleep 😛

looks pretty good...but it looks too similar to Se7en.
Matt Suhu on Jan 20, 2009
I think it looks entertaining, award winning not quite, but worth the free passes.
Atomic Popcorn on Jan 20, 2009
looks entertaining to me.

Bored already. Slasher flick for the over 30's. And I'm over 30.

Not a horror movie. Although I bet Eli Roth is giggling like a little girl somewhere...

Probably would be better to watch the film without having seen the trailer.
Collin on Jan 20, 2009
i agree with 6 and 13...

Looks like Se7en with like a cult of psyco apocolypse people or something.
MrSammich on Jan 20, 2009
it looks identical to Seven except not as good...
yourmom on Jan 20, 2009
Wow, how is this not the movie "Se7en"? Retiring detective, troubled home life for the detective, systematic killings based on Christian doctrine, a creepy monotone killer who is caught before the whole plan is carried out, solved murder system with a time constraint to find the remaining victim... you could go on. Now I'm not saying it could be as good as Se7en, but clearly the filmmakers found inspiration somewhere.

Just looks like another SAW movie........

"this looks really freakin' creepy"....? I'd rather have diarrhea for a year than watch this...eh, shit.
Markus on Jan 20, 2009
Okay, I know asian girls in movies like this are supposed to be creepy, but that Zhang Ziyi is just to damn cute.

it looks like a mix of "se7en" and the "saw" series dealing with some psychopath and religious stuff... i'd like to watch it, but it's too gory for me
F.C. on Jan 20, 2009
I'll watch it, on HBO. Horror movies are so depressing lately. Saw was good...then it came out with 4 more and IT WON'T STOP!!! MAKE IT STOP!!! Nothing is original and honestly the reason I really only care to see Saw and the FD series is to see how they manage to kill people.
Aravena on Jan 20, 2009
Looks a lot like se7en, but still thinks it could be fun.
B-Han on Jan 20, 2009
I think a lot of people just try too hard with these "horror" films - I've only seen a few people be able to use the Biblical references successfully in a thriller...and from the trailer it certainly doesn't look like this will work out very well for them.
Mattyc on Jan 20, 2009
just a jumbled mess of scenes. pass also i agree with #2
mos on Jan 20, 2009
@#2 i doubt that alex don't know zhang ziyi... as the movie geek he is, i bet he knew who zhang ziyi is and what movies did zhang ziyi appeared on and became famous for... maybe he's just plain bais, hope not racist... but i bet you... if cynthia rothrock was there, alex would laid out a sentence or two about her...

Reminds me with the Movie "Resurrection" for Christopher Lambert. Looks sick.
Fisherr on Jan 20, 2009
Looks more like a crime thriller then a horror movie.
JimD on Jan 20, 2009
The bowl is full of teeth. Yeah looks like a thriller more than horror
The Captain on Jan 20, 2009
FINALLY. More from the Director of that critically acclaimed short film, "Smack My Bitch Up". Huzzah! This appears to be a right fine film!
Jimbo Slims on Jan 21, 2009
Yeah. I'm going to have to say it looks exactly like saw in the ways of how the kiddos die. But putting it all together with the 4 horsemen theme might make it interesting. Who knows....
Seductive Flamingo on Jan 21, 2009
Yeah agreed there se7en with an apocalypse twist but could just be the trailer.
Cody on Jan 21, 2009
that looks like it could be worth watching, gory as well an added bonus yes i think i might go and see or is that come and see spooky.
zetsu on Jan 23, 2009
uhhh seems like its going to be a HUGE disappointment
Meek on Jan 25, 2009
wow didn't looks scary at all
neonblue on Jan 28, 2009
o-o not scary, but looks interesting.
Yamika on Jan 30, 2009
Is it me or does this seem lie Fo4r instead of Se7en?????
Ryan on Jan 31, 2009
Looks cool, but probably will end up that whatever Dennis Quaid's character does to stop the "Horsemen"...will actually set the supposed bad event in motion. Something like that, very Seven meets Arlington Road. Could be good though.
BEEG on Feb 4, 2009
Um, why did they give so much away? I feel like I've seen the movie already...waamp wamp waaaamp
jep on Feb 5, 2009
This movie is on the lines of S7ven. Of course, this movie won't live up to that one, though.
bags on Feb 21, 2009
