Allow Jake Gyllenhaal To Creep You the Eff Out in This ‘Nightcrawler’ Teaser

Although we got a little sneak peek the other day, this teaser is the first real look at Nightcrawler. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, who has played plenty off balance characters in his career, but this might be his creepiest performance to date.

Gyllenhaal plays a man named Lou Bloom who looks like he’d do just about anything to get what he wants. In the movie, Bloom discovers the seedy world of crime reporting in Los Angeles and immediately dives in. To what end, though, is where the suspense lies.

It was just announced this week that Nightcrawler will be showing at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and it’s set to hit theaters on October 17.
