There’s No Way You Can Watch This Trailer Without Sending Your Pulse Through The Roof

The trailer for the latest Lionsgate thriller “Fall” dropped Tuesday, and there’s no way you can watch it without your pulse hitting a million miles an hour.

Typically I’m not a huge fan of movies like the one depicted in the trailer for “Fall,” but I’ve watched it so many times that at this point that I’m going to have to see the film when it’s released in August. This is the horror version of the “will they/won’t they” set up: two girls stuck thousands of feet in the air with seemingly no way down.

If there weren’t so many people in my life who love climbing, I would say that the premise to this story is too stupid to be worth the watch. However, as the great grandchild of a well-known climber and mountaineer, I know that there are probably thousands of people who are just crazy enough to climb up something unstable thousands of feet in the air.

The cast are either all too new to acting for me to know, or too young, except for Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Movies with such limited scenery means that the bulk of the story rests on the acting ability of Grace Fulton and Virginia Gardener. Even after a two-minute trailer, I am very confident in their ability to carry this insane story.

And let’s be honest, I’ll watch anything with Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Most of y’all probably know this absolutely, unadulteratedly beautiful man from “The Walking Dead,” but to me, he’ll always be Nancy Botwin’s late husband, Judah Botwin, in “Weeds.”

His IMDB page boasts a plethora of hit shows and movies, but it’s somehow taken until the last few years for Morgan to really hit the big time, and I am so here for it. Especially with this upcoming thriller from the writer and director of “Heist,” Scott Mann.
