Netflix dropped a teaser out of nowhere this weekend for an Italian film called A Classic Horror Story, and it comes from directors Roberto De Feo (The Nest) and Paolo Strippoli.

Variety has the plot synopsis:

A Classic Horror Story sees five carpoolers travel in a motorhome to reach a common destination. Night falls and to avoid a dead animal carcass, they crash into a tree. When they come to their senses, they find themselves in the middle of nowhere. The road they were traveling on has disappeared and there is only a dense, impenetrable forest and a wooden house in the middle of a clearing, which they discover is the home of a spine-chilling cult."

"Midsommar meets The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" is quite the boast, but from the looks of the footage, it might be a legit one. And as the teaser also reveals, there will be eye trauma. Because Italy.

A Classic Horror Story hits Netflix on July 14th. Godere!
