A few weeks ago, we learned that Samuel Goldwyn Films will be giving director Elle Callahan's HEAD COUNT a theatrical, VOD, and Digital release on June 14th. The distributor is now promoting that upcoming release with a new trailer, which can be seen below.

Said to be a unique blend of influences like THE THING, IT FOLLOWS, and classic urban legends such as Bloody Mary, HEAD COUNT was written by Callahan and Michael Nader and follows 

Evan, who joins a group of teens on a getaway in Joshua Tree. While exchanging ghost stories around the campfire, Evan reads aloud a mysterious chant from a website. From that moment, someone — or something — is among them. As unsettling, inexplicable events become more frequent, Evan realizes this summoned shape-shifting creature is targeting them to fulfill a deadly ritual.

Isaac W. Jay, Ashleigh Morghan, Bevin Bru, Billy Meade, Hunter Peterson, Chelcie May, Tory Freeth, Michael Herman, Amaka Obiechie, Sam Marra, and Cooper Rowe star as the unlucky bunch that crosses paths with this supernatural creature.

HEAD COUNT was produced by Sam Sandweiss and Brandon Somerhalder, with Callahan, Hunter Peterson, Haoliang Harvey Zhang, Eric B. Fleischman, and Lauri Apelian executive producing.

This movie looks intriguing to me, so I will probably be checking it out when it's released in June.
