Becky DeMuth, 19 and pregnant, is travelling across country with her older brother Cal. They stop on a lonely stretch of highway, near an abandoned church. From a vast field of tall grass across the road they hear a young boy's cries for help. Becky and Cal wade into the grass to investigate and within minutes are disoriented and quickly lose one another, while the boy’s cries grow more desperate.

Panic, exhaustion and claustrophobia set in as Becky and Cal soon discover that once you enter the grass, it will not let you leave. Distance, sound and time become distorted and just when they think they are close to the road, they find themselves back in the middle of their nightmare.

Cal finally reaches the boy, Tobin, who explains that his father, also in the grass, has succumbed to the evil energy that surrounds them. Possessed, he will kill to keep them there. Their only hope of escape rests in the hands of Becky’s boyfriend Travis who has come looking for them, desperate to find his pregnant girlfriend. What follows is a thrilling tale of suspense and terror as the group, fearing for their lives, frantically try to find a way out.

PROJECT DETAILS
  • Filming is scheduled for September 2015 in the Toronto area.
  • Vincenzo Natali had this to say about the project: "Who would think that grass could be frightening. Trust Stephen King and Joe Hill to find a way. They have transformed an otherwise innocuous Kansas field into a stage for some of the most disturbing horror fiction I have ever read." And in reference to the protagonists: "When they go to assist the boy, they discover that strange forces are at work. Space is warped so that one minute they are together and the next they are miles apart. The field is an ineffable maze from which there is no escape. Before long they have lost their bearings and each other. But they are not alone..." (5/7/15)
  • Director Vincenzo Natali also helmed Cube and Splice.
  • Based on the novella with the same name by Stephen King and his son Joe Hill.
