Exclusive UK poster for The Town That Dreaded Sundown

We've got an exclusive poster reveal to bring you this morning, with a new quad for The Town That Dreaded Sundown, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's gore-spattered horror.

The new film is set in the small town of Texarkana, where a masked serial killer is busy offing the locals, some 65 years after a similar spate of murders.

Is it a copycat killer? Or is there something even more sinister at play? Either way, plenty of necks are going to get slashed before we uncover the answer…

The new poster is a suitably foreboding affair, with the aforementioned slasher brandishing a big old knife and performing the tried-and-tested sinister look over the shoulder. Best start running, kids…

Co-starring Addison Timlin, Veronica Cartwright and Anthony Anderson, the film will open in the UK on 17 April 2015.
