Freak Yourself Out With the First Images of Joe Hill’s ‘Nos4a2’

Joe Hill, son of King of Horror, Stephen King published his hit novel Nos4atu in 2013, but this Spring, AMC is bringing Nos4a2 to your TV, and the first images from the terrifying adaptation have just been released!

 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series, starring Zachary Quinto and Ashleigh Cummings, follows “Vic McQueen, a young working-class artist who discovers that she has a supernatural ability to track the seemingly immortal Charlie Manx. Manx feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland — a twisted Christmas Village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic must strive to defeat Manx and rescue his victims — without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.”

 

 

Check out the rest of the images on AMC’s website and get pumped for the series to premiere in April of this year!
