Jake Gyllenhaal Looks Hauntingly Disturbed In New 'Nightcrawler' Poster

Open Road Films

It's midnight in the city as darkness blankets everything, with the only light coming from the sickening, pale-green glow of lamp posts and one intense reporter's camera light.

In Nightcrawler, Jake Gyllenhaal is a freelance crime scene videographer and, according to this disturbing new poster, he kind of seems like a detached lunatic.

In the film, Lousi Bloom (Gyllenhaal) and his trusty video camera sneak from crime scene to crime scene, trying to capture all of the harrowing detail he can in an attempt to get the best story possible.

As they say in the news business, "If it bleeds, it leads," and it seems like Louis has taken this to heart as he spirals into insanity.

Nightcrawler hits theaters October 31, if you're looking for something truly scary to watch on Halloween.

This is the film Gyllenhaal famously lost an insane amount of weight to play, and if the intensity of this Nightcrawler trailer is any indication, his body-morphing efforts could very well pay off during awards season. Check out the trailer below.
