Jim Carrey is giving us what very well may be the opposite of laughs.



The actor's 2016 film "Dark Crimes" is finally making its way to the United States, with a new trailer leading the way. Based on the preview, the film looks chilling, to say the least. Carrey plays Tadek, a detective looking into a grisly murder. At the top of his list of suspects is a crime writer who has written eerily similar stories.



The plot and the case seem straightforward enough at first, but the trailer soon shows there are more variables at play. We don't know what they are, but they appear to set up some possibly mind-boggling twists. Watch for yourself below.




Carrey stars in the thriller alongside Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marton Csokas, Agata Kulesza, Zbigniew Zamachowski, and Kati Outinen. The film is based on the New Yorker article "True Crime" by David Grann and Krystian Bala, and it premiered at the 2016 Warsaw Film Festival.



"Dark Crimes" opens stateside May 11.
