The trailer is unsettling in its sere elegant grotesqueness (a snowman near the end is particularly unnerving).

The Snowman will be in theaters on October 20th.

Assassin’s Creed Is Awful!

Callum Lynch wakes up the morning after his execution to discover he’s the essential part of a plan to travel back in through – through an ancestor’s memories – to locate the Apple of Eden for the contemporary Templars.
