Come the arrival of a strange box on their doorstep, followed by Frank Langella’s mysterious stranger, their fortunes are soon reversed, but at what cost?

Judging by this trailer it seems that Kelly has constructed a tightly wound thriller with a horror tinge to it. The film has an intriguing premise in place, and could well be the writer/director’s most straight forward genre effort yet.

The film was adapted from a short story by Richard Matheson titled,  Button, Button. This promo comes courtesy of traileraddict.com

The Box is scheduled for release in the UK on 04 December 2009.
