In The Go North Trailer, The Apocalypse Is High Schoolers Ruling Themselves

Video: I actually cannot think of a hell worse than being trapped in a high school with the jocks running things. That's enough to make anyone long for their parents, principals and teachers.

Go North takes place after some disaster has led to Lord of the Flies/Children of the Corn-style community of children, led by children. Only, in this case, it's being run the way we all imagine high schools are run: By the popular.

Jacob Lofland (Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials) and Sophie Kennedy Clark (Philomena) go looking for their families and, you know, the hope of not being controlled by other teenagers, you guessed it, going north. They're chased by the evil Caleb (Patrick Schwarzenegger) and his minion (James Bloor).

Enjoy this trailer, which contains the second creepiest use of the Pledge of Allegiance I've seen this year, after Man in the High Castle.

Go North will be available in theatres and VOD in the US on January 13. An Australian release has not yet been confirmed.
