The official trailer for the upcoming horror movie Girl on the Third Floor starring former WWE Superstar CM Punk was released Tuesday.

In the trailer, Punk's character is attempting to renovate a house he and his pregnant wife moved into, but he runs into some unexpected and terrifying issues:

According to Eric Diaz of Nerdist, Punk is a longtime lover of horror-related movies and shows, which makes him an ideal fit for the film.

Punk is best known for his time in WWE, but he has had no real involvement in professional wrestling since leaving WWE in 2014.

Instead, Punk has focused on MMA, as he fought in a pair of fights for UFC, losing both. He is also now a commentator for Cage Fury Fighting Championships.

There has recently been a great deal of speculation regarding Punk potentially returning to wrestling. All Elite Wrestling's All Out pay-per-view is being held near Punk's hometown of Chicago on Saturday, and Punk is appearing at the Starrcast convention that day in the Windy City.

While AEW and Starrcast are technically independent of each other, they have a working relationship, and Punk's involvement has created no shortage of buzz.

Even if a return to wrestling isn't in the cards for Punk, his role in Girl on the Third Floor will have him in the spotlight when it hits theaters and digital platforms Oct. 25.
