Neon has finally released the trailer for Cuckoo, the horror feature from Tilman Singer starring Hunter Schafer.

“Reluctantly, 17-year-old Gretchen (Schafer) leaves her American home to live with her father, who has just moved into a resort in the German Alps with his new family,” reads the synopsis. “Arriving at their future residence, they are greeted by Mr. König (Dan Stevens), 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.”

Also starring in the film are Jessica Henwick, Jan Bluthardt, Marton Csokas, Greta Fernández and Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey. Singer writes and directs the film, which premiered at Berlin International Film Festival earlier this year before screening at South by Southwest.

Schafer is best known for playing Jules Vaughn on HBO’s drama series Euphoria, and later appeared in The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes. She’ll next be seen in the Yorgos Lanthimos anthology feature Kinds of Kindness. Stevens, meanwhile, can currently be seen in Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, and will also star in Universal’s upcoming horror-thriller Abigail from filmmaking team Radio Silence.

Cuckoo releases in cinemas from May 17th in the UK, and from August 9th in the US. Watch the trailer below:
