Sinister cards, death, teenagers. That’s all you need to know about the new horror film Tarot before watching the trailer here.
A group of teens begin dying mysteriously after taking part in a sinister game. Sound familiar? This could easily describe mutliple films such as Ouija, Truth Or Dare or Stay Alive.
In this case, though, we’re talking about Tarot, which is aiming to be 2024’s big horror sensation.
Take a look at the Tarot trailer.
If the name Tarot doesn’t ring a bell, not to worry. The film was going by the name Horrorscope until recently.
Here’s the official synopsis: “When a group of friends recklessly violates the sacred rule of Tarot readings – never use someone else’s deck – they unknowingly unleash an unspeakable evil trapped within the cursed cards. One by one, they come face to face with fate and end up in a race against death to escape the future foretold in their readings.”
Teenagers just really love unleashing ancient evils in films, don’t they?
Tarot is directed by Spenser Cohen and Anna Halberg, who are also in charge of the film’s script. Cohen was a producer and co-writer on Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall.
We liked Moonfall. We liked Moonfall a lot. We understand if you didn’t like Moonfall, though.
The cast includes Harriet Slater, Adain Bradley, Avantika and Jacob Batalon. Batalon is best known as Ned, Peter Parker’s best friend in the Tom Holland Spider-Man films, while Avantika just appeared (and pretty much stole the show) as Karen in the new Mean Girls.
January has proved disappointing for horror films, and in fact, the entire first half of 2024 is looking a little slim for cinematic frights. Here’s hoping Tarot will fix that in May.
