The trailer for Barricade, WWE Studios' next movie, has been officially released, with the supernatural thriller clearly looking to provide more than its fair share of shocks and scares to audiences.

Barricade, which stars Eric McCormack of Will and Grace fame, is an interesting prospect for WWE Studios due to a few reasons.

First of all, the movie, which revolves around a traumatized widower and his two children trapped in an isolated cabin in the snow-filled mountains, marks the company's first horror release since 2004's See No Evil.

Since then, WWE Studios have generally stuck to churning out action flicks (The Marine, The Condemned, 12 Rounds, etc.), coming-of-age dramas (Legendary, That's What I Am) or cheesy family-friendly comedies (Knucklehead, The Chaperone).

It is also, as the Hollywood Reporter website noted last year, the first time WWE has financed and produced a film that doesn't involve any of their pro wrestlers in featured roles. (Post-apocalyptic drama The Day, which was released last week, didn't star any WWE Superstars either, but that was due to the company buying the film after it had been filmed and finished).

As the trailer notes, Barricade is due out on DVD and Blu-ray on September 25. It's directed by horror veteran Andrew Currie, with a script from newcomer Michaelbrent Collins
