The newest trailer for the upcoming Thai-Korean horror film The Medium (Rang Zong) is sure to haunt you in your sleep.

Directed by Thailand’s Banjong Pisanthanakun, best known for his work in the 2004 horror classic Shutter, and produced by The Wailing’s Na Hong-jin, The Medium is set in the northeast region of Thailand’s Isan, where the kind goddess Ba Yan is worshipped. A local family has served as Ba Yan’s shaman for many generations, and only a woman can be chosen as the next medium. However, when the condition of the successor, a young girl named Mink, begins to deteriorate, she also starts to behave in a sinister manner that worries the family that believes in the supposed goodness of Ba Yan.

While an exact premiere date is yet to be announced, the horror film has already been picked up in France by The Jokers, the same company who previously distributed the likes of Bong Joon-ho‘s Parasite and Park Chan-wook’s The Handmaiden. Meanwhile, the international release will be provided by Finecut who also distributed Na Hong-jin’s Cannes films The Chaser and The Wailing.

Watch the full trailer above. The Medium is set to hit theaters some time this July.
