The Forest Fights Back in Stunning ‘Gaia’ Teaser Trailer [SXSW]

Set to World Premiere at the virtual SXSW Film Festival, we now have a teaser trailer for Jaco Bouwer’s South African horror Gaia, which looks absolutely stunning.

The film heads into the depths of an ancient forest where something has been growing. Something older than humanity itself, and perhaps greater too. When a park ranger discovers a man and his son living wild, she stumbles onto a secret that is about to change the world.

It stars Monique Rockman, Carel Nel, Alex van Dyk, and Anthony Oseyemi.

The trailer looks like a horror kitchen sink, melding everything from body horror to creature features while tapping into greats like Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead. This looks to have it all plus some. Check it out…
