The trailer for the highly anticipate MOHAWK has finally hit the internet. Garnering much buzz from the 2017 Film Festival circuit, Mohawk has been on our radar since Fantasia Fest this past summer.

The film, set during the War of 1812, follows a young Mohawk warrior who seeks revenge after her village is burnt to the ground by American soldiers. Mohack is directed and co-written by Ted Geoghegan, who’s We Are Still Here (2015) is quickly earning cult status among the horror community. The film is co-written by acclaimed horror author Grady Hendrix.

Official Synopsis:

After one of her tribe sets an American camp ablaze, a young Mohawk warrior finds herself pursued by a contingent of military renegades set on revenge. Fleeing deep into the woods they call home, Oak and Calvin, along with their British companion Joshua, must now fight back against the bloodthirsty Colonel Holt and his soldiers – using every resource both real and supernatural that the winding forest can offer.
