“In the Shadow of the Moon” Trailer Blends Sci-Fi and the Eighties

A detective with a mustache tracks a mysterious young woman in the 1980s. No, this isn’t Stranger Things, it’s Netflix’s new psychological thriller, In the Shadow of the Moon.

The trailer makes clear that this isn’t your typical detective-tracks-down-a-killer show. Diving right into the gruesome crime scenes, we learn that there’s a serial killer on the loose who mysteriously resurfaces every nine years. She seems impervious to death and offers vague and foreboding phrases like, “I’m doing all this for a reason,” which only seems to drive Detective Thomas Lockhart further towards the brink of sanity.

The genre-bending film stars Boyd Holbrook (Narcos), Michael C. Hall (Dexter) and Cleopatra Coleman and hits Netflix on September 27.
