Sony Pictures has debuted a new trailer for the upcoming John Chu-led horror ‘Afraid.’

Curtis (John Cho) and his family are selected to test a revolutionary new home device: a digital family assistant called AIA. Taking smart home to the next level, once the unit and all its sensors and cameras are installed in their home, AIA seems able to do it all. She learns the family’s behaviours and begins to anticipate their needs. And she can make sure nothing – and no one – gets in her family’s way.

Written and directed by Chris Weitz, the cast includes John Cho, Katherine Waterson, Havana Rose Liu, Lukita Maxwell with David Dastmalchian and Keith Charradine.
