It’s been a while since we’ve seen a truly chilling thriller. Focus Features hopes to change that with The Horsemen, borrowing a page from The Bible … and a story similar to Se7en. Check the trailer out.

The Horsemen, starring Dennis Quaid and Ziyi Zhang, focuses on a recently widowed detective that discovers startling connections between himself and suspects in a serial killing spree linked to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The film is Swedish director Jonas Akerlund’s latest effort, having directed the drug film Spun in 2002. It’s hard to know what to think of the trailer. Maybe we’ve been burnt too many times by poor suspense thrillers. We’ll let you decide whether it’s worth wearing blood covered glasses and heading out to theaters for the film. It does remind me of drunken rides in a car four years ago as Metallica’s Four Horsemen blared out of the speakers. Sigh, you never forget that freshman year of college.
The Horsemen debuts in theaters on March 13th. What do you think of The Horsemen trailer? What is Dennis Quaid’s best performance of his career?
