“No one’s coming for us.” Shudder has revealed an official trailer for an indie horror film titled Quicksand, made by Colombian filmmaker Andrés Beltrán. It’s set to debut on Shudder starting in July for anyone who wants to watch. “Get ready to witness a gripping fight for survival and love as a hike through a Colombian rainforest takes a turn.” While on a hike in Colombia, an America couple get stuck in quicksand. Unable to move, it becomes a struggle for survival, as they battle the elements of the jungle and a venomous snake, in order to escape to safety. Starring Carolina Gaitàn and Allan Hawco, along with Andrés Castañeda and Sebastian Eslava. It’s funny that it took them so long to finally make a horror movie about quicksand, it was always one of those crazy things you talk about while growing up but never actually encounter in real life. This has such a huge setup with the couple, then everything else that gets them in there. Check it out?
