'Haunting Of Hill House' Fans Will Love This New Twisted Fairytale Film

'Haunting Of Hill House' Fans Will Love This New Twisted Fairytale Film

Calling all Haunting Of Hill House fans: gear yourselves up for another film adaptation of a classic Shirley Jackson novel.

We Have Always Lived In The Castle, based on the 1962 mystery thriller of the same name, promises to be a super sinister, twisted film that differs from the usual thrillers and horrors.

You can watch the full two minute-long trailer here:

There are no ghosts jumping out of cupboards of suspense created through eerily dark corridors, and it will instead chill you to the core through a strange, goosebump-inducing tale.

As per the official synopsis, the movie will centre on "an isolated family, The Blackwoods, who use rituals and talismans to ward off hostile townspeople.

"The clan has already lost four members to poisoning when a distant cousin (Stan) arrives to maliciously secure the Blackwood fortune, at which point family secrets are unearthed."

The movie is said to be hitting US cinemas on 17th May, and has been directed by Stacie Passon, with screenplay by Mark Kruger. A UK release date is expected to follow soon after.

"I read Castle first when I was in high school," said filmmaker Stacie in her director's statement.

She added: "It is smart, suspenseful, dark satire. The story, narrated by an 18-year-old sociopathic girl named Merricat Blackwood, is a rich mix of American political and social commentary. The themes of isolation, gender, class warfare seem even more relevant today."

The cast boasts the likes of Crispin Glover as Uncle Julian Blackwood, whose extreme gangrene has confined him to a wheelchair.

He will star opposite Sebastian Stan (of Black Swan fame), while American Horror Story's Alexandra Daddario and Taissa Farmiga will feature as sisters Constance and Merricatt Blackwood in the forthcoming flick.

And if Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House is anything to go by, this movie could be hugely popular with thriller fans.
