'We Need to Talk About Kevin' trailer: The newest nominee for the Creepy Child Hall of Fame

Posted on

The new trailer for festival sensation We Need to Talk About Kevin features Buddy Holly and the Crickets crooning the impossibly peppy “Everyday,” which contrasts gloriously with the subject matter: In just under two minutes, we see Tilda Swinton age from being an excitable young newlywed into a mom who vaguely suspects that her son might be… well, really really evil. John C. Reilly plays the dad who just thinks the kid is “a sweet little boy… a sweet little boy.” Newcomer Ezra Miller looks like a young Michael Myers. Suffice it to say, there’s a big twist that the trailer doesn’t give away. Also suffice it to say this probably won’t be your Christmas movie this year. Watch the trailer:
