#TRAILERCHEST: Michael Fassbender is hunting a terrifying serial killer in The Snowman

"The only thing we know for certain... is that he's playing with us."

Welcome to #TrailerChest, where we're taking a sneak peek at the newly released second trailer for The Snowman.

Plot it's all about: Based on a book by the ridiciously successful author Jo Nesbo, Fassbender plays Detective Harry Hole, who is investigating the case of a missing woman, with the only initial clue left behind being a pink scarf wrapped around a snowman.

From there, things take a turn for the worst - to a frankly terrifying degree - as the investigation uncovers a truly horrific serial killer with a very specific approach to murder... one that will have just about everyone thinking twice about how cute and harmless snowmen will be going forward.

On top of the killer cast and great source material, the movie is directed by none other than Tomas Alfredson, the guy behind the original Let The Right One In, as well as the incredible spy thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

From the look of the trailer, the influences from the likes of Se7en and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo are obvious, but this is very much set out to be it's own thing, and you can expect to get the chills from more than just the unwelcoming Scandinavian weather.

Starring: Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Val Kilmer, Chloë Sevigny, J.K Simmons, Toby Jones and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Directed by: Tomas Alfredson.

Release date: 13 October 2017.
