This new sci-fi thriller coming to Disney+ looks properly nightmarish

It looks like a must watch for fans of claustrophobic, single-location thrillers.

A first trailer has hit the web for The Mill, a very scary-looking new sci-fi thriller.


The movie stars Lil Rel Howery (Get Out, Poker Face) as a married businessman who mysteriously wakes up in an open-air prison cell with only an old grist mill.

Forced by a disembodied voice to push the mill or else be "terminated", the man tries to find away to escape before the birth of his child.

Also featuring amongst The Mill's cast is Karen Obilom (Doom Patrol), Pat Healy (Better Call Saul) and Patrick Fischler (Mulholland Drive), while the film is written by Jeffrey David Thomas (Titans) and directed by Sean King O'Grady.

The latter made a stir with his similarly claustrophobic 2021 thriller We Need to Do Something.


The Mill is set to be released in Ireland on Disney+ sometime after its US premiere on Hulu on 9 October.
