Halle Berry stars a desperate mother in Alexandre Aja’s latest horror film. Watch the first Never Let Go trailer below. 

Switchblade Romance (also known as High Tension, or Haute Tension in French), Alexandre Aja’s gnarly slasher, made the French director into a talent to watch in 2003. After that, Aja has created a successful career in Hollywood, earning him a reputation of being able to turn out solid genre fare on time and with a relatively small budget. 

Never Let Go, Lionsgate’s latest horror film, might just be his scariest film to date. Starring Halle Berry as a desperate mother, trying to keep her sons safe from an unseen evil, it all looks absolutely terrifying. 

See for yourself. Watch the first Never Let Go trailer below. 

Written by KC Coughlin and Ryan Grassby, the film looks economically made with a small cast, few locations but maximum scares. Aja directed 2021’s Oxygen for Netflix, another film that kept things simple with a single location and just Mélanie Laurent on screen. 

Mark Romanek, who directed similarly titled but much more tragic Never Let Me Go, was once attached to direct Never Let Go, but Aja replaced him in early 2023. Back then, the film was called Mother Land but was retitled in April 2024. The film also nabbed the release date that previously belonged to Saw XI.

Here’s the official synopsis for Never Let Go:

From visionary director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Crawl) and executive producers of Stranger Things and Arrival comes NEVER LET GO. In this new psychological thriller/horror, as an Evil takes over the world beyond their front doorstep, the only protection for a mother, played by Academy Award® winner Halle Berry (Actress in a Leading Role, 2001 – Monster’s Ball), and her twin sons is their house and their family’s protective bond.

Needing to stay connected at all times – even tethering themselves with ropes – they cling to one another, urging each other to never let go. But when one of the boys questions if the evil is real, the ties that bind them together are severed, triggering a terrifying fight for survival.

Never Let Go arrives in cinemas on the 27th September.
