Official Trailer for The Turning Invites You to a Creepy House with Creepy Kids
This haunted house story will make you want to sleep with the lights on.
By Chris Morse
Watch the children with care is the mantra for the upcoming haunted house movie, The Turning, and the creepy first trailer gives us plenty of good reasons to heed that warning.
Fresh off of yesterday’s first look photos from the film is this official trailer, which gives us a much more comprehensive look at what this story is all about as it puts a modern spin on Henry James’ classic horror novella, The Turn of the Screw. Give it a watch above and see for yourself!
Instead of centering on a governess and her children, The Turning takes the classic haunted house tale in a more modern direction and is instead set in the ‘90s. The film follows a nanny who is looking for a life change and moves into a mysterious house where she meets two orphans, Flora and Miles. Before long, it becomes apparent that something is not quite right with them or the house.
The Turning is directed by Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways, The Handmaid’s Tale) based on a screenplay from Chad Hayes and Carey W. Hayes. Starring is Mackenzie Davis (Black Mirror's “San Junipero,” Blade Runner 2049), Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things, Stephen King’s It), Brooklynn Prince, and Joely Richardson. The film will be released on January 24th, 2020.
