Vertical Entertainment has revealed the trailer for their upcoming horror feature Jacob’s Ladder. Directed by David M. Rosenthal, Jacob’s Ladder stars Michael Ealy, Jesse Williams, Nicole Beharie and Karla Souza. Jeff Buhler and Sarah Thorpe penned the script, with Will Packer, Mickey Liddell, Michael J. Gaeta, Alison R. Rosenzweig, Pete Shilaimon, and Jennifer Monroe serving as producers.

The film is described as:

After the death of his brother in Afghanistan, Jacob Singer is finally getting his life back together. He has a beautiful wife, a new born child and a successful career as surgeon in a VA hospital. When a stranger approaches him and tells him that his brother is actually alive and living in an underground shelter with other homeless vets, Jacob’s life starts to unravel. He begins hallucinating, believes he is being followed by violent attackers and becomes paranoid about the truth of what really happened to his brother. When he discovers that his brother is alive and addicted to an experimental drug, he uncovers a secret he never could have been prepared for.

The 1990 original Jacob’s Ladder, starring Tim Robbins, was greeted with mixed reviews but has become a cult classic. The reboot is set to debut in theaters and VOD on August 23rd. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for the latest on the film and have a look at the official trailer below.
