Amazon Studios has released the first trailer for director Nicolas Winding Refn's horror film The Neon Demon.

Starring Elle Fanning and Keanu Reeves, the visually erotic feature debuts next month at the Cannes Film Festival.

The Neon Demon centers on an aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles, where her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will go to any lengths to get what she has.

Christina Hendricks, Bella Heathcote and Jena Malone co-star in the film, which doesn't have an official release date.

Refn won the director prize at Cannes in 2011 with Ryan Gosling starrer Drive, which has achieved a near-cult status and became a major critical success. Refn's past credits also include Only God Forgives, Pusher and Valhalla Rising.
