Adam Scott Is Stepdad To The Antichrist In Little Evil Trailer

Adam Scott has to deal with the son of Satan in the first trailer for Netflix's upcoming horror-comedy Little Evil. In the film, Scott plays Gary, a man just married to the woman of his dreams Samantha (Evangeline Lilly). There's one problem, though– he's pretty sure her son is the antichrist.

The trailer starts off with Gary in a support group, talking about Samantha, who he says is "perfect" and everything he's ever wanted. However, he says that he's having a little bit of trouble bonding with his new stepson Lucas (Owen Atlas), who likes to randomly dig up large piles of earthworms and bring them into the house. "He never really looks me in the eye, doesn't talk much except when he yells at me to get out of his room using this weird little goat puppet thing," Gary says. "I get the sense that he's..." "Evil incarnate?" interrupts Donald Faison's Larry. "Yeah," replies Gary. 

Gary decides to investigate Lucas' origins a bit further, and asks Samantha how the child was conceived. "You remember when I told you about that crazy time in my 20's where I joined that sort of like, cult?" Samantha says. "No, I don't think you told me about that," a very perturbed Gary replies. "The Doomsday Cult believes a child will rise up from hell to rule mankind and to bring on the end of the world as we know it," explains Tyler Labine's Karl. "I think we found that child. And now, you're his stepdad." 

While it seems pretty apparent that something isn't right with Lucas, his mother is willing to write off his weird actions. "There is nothing wrong with Lucas," she says, justifying him setting a clown on fire at a birthday party and writing the word "Rapture" surrounded by drawings of devilish symbols on the ceiling. "He's very particular." 

Bridget Everett, Clancy Brown, Chris D'Elia, and Kyle Bornheimer also star in Little Evil, which was written and directed by Tucker and Dale vs. Evil's Eli Craig. The movie, one of many exciting upcoming Netflix exclusives you didn't realize were being made right now, is set to hit the streamer on Sept. 1.
