Youth Runs Wild! continues at Trailers from Hell, with director Brian Trenchard-Smith introducing Lynne Ramsay's mother-son nightmare "We Need to Talk About Kevin," starring Tilda Swinton and Ezra Miller.

Lynne Ramsey’s chilling 2012 US-British horror film, about a young sociopath whose sadistic disposition turns murderous, skirts the line between exploitation and art. Tilda Swinson plays Kevin’s tragically ineffectual mother and John C. Reilly co-stars as his oblivious father. Both the long-gestating film and Swinson nabbed several awards including the Palme d’Or at Cannes and BAFTA’s Best Actress prize.
