The Neon Demon is a new horror film about a fresh talent in the modeling world played by Elle Fanning, and the women who are murderously obsessed with her. Finally, a fashion film that's scarier than The Devil Wears Prada.

Amazon just acquired the film from Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn. It also stars Abbey Lee, Jena Malone, Christina Hendricks, Bella Heathcote, and Keanu Reeves. It's scheduled to land in theaters sometime in 2016 and screen at this year's Cannes Film Festival as well.

    Take a look at the trailer below. As it clips through unsettling images like a butcher knife, a big cat in a bedroom, moving walls, bloody mouths, and more, Fanning's voiceover says, "You know what my mother used to call me? Dangerous. 'You're a dangerous girl.' She was right. I am dangerous."
