The Evil Within trailer features a beautiful pasture and a homicidal, box-wearing butcher

The protagonist of The Evil Within thinks he might be crazy, and a trailer released today for Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami's upcoming survival horror game makes that seem sane.

Press play above to to see a mixture of the surreal (a sunflower pasture under a blood orange sky) and the sadistic (a homicidal butcher wearing a box on his head) in the trailer's montage.

The Evil Within is heading to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows PC August 26 in North America, August 28 in Australia and August 29 in Europe. For more on Mikami and the studio he created, Tango Gameworks, be sure to read Polygon's feature.
