The Turning new horror trailer gives a modern take on The Turn Of The Screw

Miles and Flora terrorise their nanny in the trailer for horror The Turning

Mackenzie Davis arrives at Bly Manor to take care of a couple of unusual children in the trailer for horror film The Turning. Based on Henry James’ novella The Turns Of The Screw, it promises a modern retelling with thrills, chills and more…

For more than 100 years, a deeply haunting tale has been passed down to terrify audiences. Next January, DreamWorks Pictures’ 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 harbouring dark secrets and things may not be as they appear.

The film is directed by Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale) and stars Mackenzie Davis (Terminator: Dark Fate, The Martian), Finn Wolfhard (It, Netflix’s Stranger Things), newcomer Brooklynn Prince (The Florida Project) and Joely Richardson (Red Sparrow, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo).

The script was written by Chad Hayes & Carey W. Hayes (The Conjuring), and produced by Scott Bernstein (Straight Outta Compton, Ride Along 2) and Roy Lee (It, The Lego Movie). Universal will release The Turning domestically and in select international territories.

The Turning is in cinemas in on 24 January 2020. Get all the latest sci-fi news with every issue of SciFiNow.
