1 Min Read

Shudder released today the trailer for the new survival thriller Quicksand, the English-language Colombian film written by Matt Pitts (Westworld) and directed by Andrés Beltrán (Tarumama). 

As kids, we all thought quicksand would be a more pressing concern than it ended up being … you know you’ve thought it too. But this trailer showcases every possible worst-case scenario while traveling, and is a very effective example of why nature is actually terrifying.

In Quicksand, an American couple on the brink of divorce travel to Colombia for a work conference. While on a hike through the rainforest, a storm causes them to become trapped in a pit of quicksand. Unable to move, it becomes a struggle for survival as they battle the elements of the jungle and a venomous snake in order to escape. The film stars Carolina Gaitàn (Encanto) and Allan Hawco (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan).

The Shudder Original film will make its exclusive streaming debut Friday, July 14 on Shudder, and will also be available to stream on AMC+. Check out the trailer below.
