‘Never Let Go’ Trailer: Halle Berry Battles an Evil Spirit to Survive in New Horror Film Directed by Alexandre Aja

Lionsgate has released the trailer for the Alexandre Aja-directed horror film “Never Let Go,” starring Halle Berry.

“Never Let Go” follows a mother (Berry) and her fraternal twin sons (Anthony B. Jenkins and Percy Daggs IV), who have protected themselves from a malicious spirit for years under their family’s protective bond. However, when one of the boys begins to question the existence of the evil, the bond is broken, leading to a terrifying fight for survival.

Jenkins, Daggs, Matthew Kevin Anderson, Christin Park and Stephanie Lavigne round out the cast.

Aja (“The Hills Have Eyes,” “Piranha 3D”) directed from a script by Kevin Coughlin and Ryan Grassby. He also produced alongside 21 Laps’ Dan Cohen, Dan Levine and Shawn Levy with Berry, Dan Clarke, Connor DiGregorio, Holly Jeter, Emily Morris and Christopher Woodrow serving as executive producers.

Berry is no stranger to horror and thriller films, having starred in “Gothika,” “The Rich Man’s Wife,” “Perfect Stranger,” “Dark Tide” and “The Call.” At Lionsgate’s CinemaCon panel in April, the Oscar-winning actor said she took on the role in “Never Let Go” because she’s a “bonafide adrenaline junkie” and the film “gave [her] an opportunity to be a part of a world [she] had never seen before.”

“With this movie, it reminded me how I would protect my children with my life,” Berry added. “We often say, ‘I would take a bullet for my kids.’ Would you take a knife for your kids?”

“Never Let Go” premieres in theaters on Sept. 27. Watch the full trailer below.
