Michael Fassbender Stars In The Chilling Trailer For The Snowman

You'll never look at a snowball quite the same.

Universal released an incredibly creepy first trailer for The Snowman starring Michael Fassbender, and it puts a horrifying twist on a beloved winter tradition.

Based upon the best-selling thriller by Norwegian author Jo Nesbø, The Snowman follows the unfortunately named detective Harry Hole (Fassbender), investigating the elusive "Snowman Killer" who leaves snowmen as a macabre way to mark his killings. But the killer eventually begins to take a personal interest in Fassbender's character.

The book is actually the seventh entry in Nesbø's Harry Hole series and, at one point, Martin Scorsese was attached to direct. However, the final product comes from Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One InTinker Tailor Soldier Spy). Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and J.K. Simmons co-star.

The Snowman will arrive just before winter on Oct. 20. Meanwhile, take a look at a few horror movies that will blow everyone away this year.
