Dark Sky Films has released the first trailer for Mohawk, the historical horror from We Are Still Here director Ted Geoghegan. Set in a single gruesome day during the war of 1812, Mohawk follows a young Native American warrior on a bloody path to survival as she’s hunted down by a contingent of soldiers hell bent on revenge against her people. The film fared well making the festival rounds last year, and now it’s heading to theaters.
Mohawk re-teams Geoghegan with his We Are Still Here producer Travis Stevens and cinematographer Karim Hussain, and stars Kaniehtiio Horn (Hemlock Grove), Justin Rain (Fear the Walking Dead), Eamon Farren (Twin Peaks: The Return), Noah Segan (Looper), Robert Longstreet (I Don’t Feel at Home in this World Anymore), and Sheri Foster (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). The film arrives in theaters and on VOD and Digital HD on March 2. Watch the first trailer below.
Here’s the official synopsis for Mohawk:
After one of her tribe sets an American camp ablaze, a young Mohawk warrior finds herself pursued by a contingent of military renegades set on revenge. Fleeing deep into the woods they call home, Oak and Calvin, along with their British companion Joshua, must now fight back against the bloodthirsty Colonel Holt and his soldiers – using every resource both real and supernatural that the winding forest can offer.
