A young governess is hired by a man who has become responsible for his young nephew and niece after the deaths of their parents.
For more than 100 years Henry James‘ deeply-haunting short horror novela “The Turn of the Screw” (1898) has been passed down terrifying readers. Now DreamWorks Pictures has released the eerie trailer and poster for the horror-mystery ‘The Turning‘ in the hopes of doing the same for movie-going audiences. The film is directed by spellbinding visualist Floria Sigismondi and promises to raise more than a few goosebumps.
The Turning takes us to a mysterious estate in the Maine countryside, where newly appointed nanny Kate is charged with the care of two disturbed orphans, Flora and Miles. Quickly though, she discovers that both the children and the house are harboring dark secrets and things may not be as they appear…
The film hits theaters January 24, 2020. Peep the trailer and one-sheet below.
The film stars Mackenzie Davis (Terminator: Dark Fate, The Martian), Finn Wolfhard (Netflix’s Stranger Things), It), newcomer Brooklynn Prince (The Florida Project) and Joely Richardson (Red Sparrow, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)).
