The 2018 Sundance Film Festival is nearly upon us, and we’ll soon have coverage of the newest indie movies on the scene making their debut in the mountains of Park City, Utah. One of our more anticipated movies in the line-up has just debuted an awesome new teaser trailer.

Summer of ’84 is the latest film from RKSS (or François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell), the filmmakers behind the cult favorite Turbo Kid, and the first teaser trailer paints a picture that is clearly going for a Stranger Things vibe, but with a little more of a sinister style. While there’s a bit of an Amblin-esque thing going on here, the subject matter is a little darker as a group of teens gets caught up in the mystery of a serial killer terrorizing their suburban town back in 1984.
