Cuckoo Trailer Featuring Schafer, Stevens, and Henwick

NEON has revealed the official trailer for Cuckoo, the horror film written and directed by Tilman Singer. The movie had its world premiere at the 74th Berlin International Film Festival on February 16 and will open in theaters on August 9.

A Fiction Park and Waypoint Entertainment production, Cuckoo was rated R by the MPA for violence, bloody images, language, and brief teen drug use.

Reluctantly, 17-year-old Gretchen leaves her American home to live with her father, who has just moved into a resort in the German Alps with his new family. Arriving at their future residence, they are greeted by Mr. König, her father’s boss, who takes an inexplicable interest in Gretchen’s mute half-sister, Alma.

Something doesn’t seem right in this tranquil vacation paradise. Gretchen is plagued by strange noises and bloody visions until she discovers a shocking secret that also concerns her own family.

Following his festival sensation Luz, German director Tilman Singer has once again succeeded in creating an atmospheric and visually outstanding horror trip with an original plot and perfidious twists.

The NEON release, which was shot on 35 mm, features Euphoria star Hunter Schafer alongside a terrifying Dan Stevens. The cast also includes Jan Bluthardt, Marton Csokas, Jessica Henwick, and Greta Fernández.

Cuckoo was produced by Markus Halberschmidt, Josh Rosenbaum, Maria Tsigka, Ken Kao, Thor Bradwell, and Ben Rimmer.

Paul Faultz is the director of photography, Dario Mendez Acosta is the production designer, and the film editors are Terel Gibson and Philipp Thomas.

Simon Waskow composed the music, and Frauke Firl designed the costumes. Michael Schlömer recorded the sound, Jonathan Wales and Henning Hein mixed the re-recording, and Astrid Weber and Hannah Fischleder did the hair and makeup.
