WATCH: Trailer for Kevin Williamson’s Sick arrives ahead of it hitting Peacock next week

As big Scream fans here at FTN, the name Kevin Williamson attached to a slasher flick will always grab our attention.

Williamson wrote the first couple of Scream movies and I Know What You Did Last Summer and now he’s back with a new slasher with the very timely Sick which he co-wrote with Katelyn Crabb.

Set during the pandemic, the movie sees two friends staying in a beach house during lockdown and they’re soon joined a couple of unwanted friends… and a killer.

The scene with the woman demanding the girl put her mask on while the killer comes for her is the most on-the-money representation I have seen of the last three years and the insanity that came with it. And still is n many ways.

The movie is directed by Black Summer’s John Hyams and stars Gideon Adlon, Bethlehem Million, Marc Menchaca and Jane Adams.

As the pandemic steadily brings the world to a halt, Parker and her best friend Miri decide to quarantine at the family lake house alone—or so they think. Directed by John Hyams (Alone), written by Kevin Williamson (Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer) and Katelyn Crabb, SICK stars Gideon Adlon (Blockers, The Craft: Legacy), Bethlehem Million (And Just Like That), Marc Menchaca (The Outsider, Ozark) and Jane Adams (Twin Peaks, Poltergeist, Hacks).

Sick is streaming January 13th on Peacock

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
