Locusts Have a Taste for Blood in Trailer for the Netflix Horror Film THE SWARM.


Netflix has released a trailer for its upcoming French horror film The Swarm. The story follows a struggling woman who raises locusts that have a taste for blood. This looks like a dark and unsettling horror movie, the trailer sparks my interest, and I want to see how this story plays out.

The film centers on a woman named Virginie (Suliane Brahim), a single mother who lives on a farm with her children Laura (Marie Narbonne) and Gaston (Raphael Romand), and she raises locusts as a high-protein crop. Life is hard for Virginie as her money worries and practical problems are piling up; tensions with her kids and neighbors are running high. But everything changes when she discovers the locusts have a taste for blood. Once Virginie discovers this about her locusts, she goes out of her way to make sure they get the blood they crave.

The Swarm is the first feature film from director Just Philippot.The Swarm debuts on Netflix on August 6, 2021.
