A new trailer for the horror movie The Secret Of Marrowbone has landed which star’s Split and The Witch’s Anya Taylor-Joy and Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton, and it looks bloody terrifying.
Anya Taylor-Joy and Charlie Heaton star in Sergio G. Sánchez’s directorial debut, The Secret of Marrowbone. The two actors seem to like working together. They’re going to be appearing in the X-Men spin-off movie, The New Mutants, and both films are horror-inflected. This film is of particular interest because Sánchez previously wrote the scripts to The Orphanage and The Impossible. It also comes from the producer of Pan’s Labyrinth and A Monster Calls, so there a quite a few reasons to be interested in this project.
The film itself will tell the story of how four siblings who seek refuge in an old home after the death of their mother end up discovering that the house has another, more sinister, inhabitant. It does sound like a story that’s been told before, yet the talent involved in the project is really what gets me excited to see this. Pan’s Labyrinth is one of my favourite movies of all time, and The Orphanage is a film that everybody should check out.
Anya Taylor-Joy’s involvement is also interesting. She was outstanding in both The Witch and Split, and she’s quickly becoming a horror movie darling. Taylor-Joy is undoubtedly a star in the making and appearing in films like The Secret of Marrowbone won’t do her any harm, especially after The New Mutants being pushed back into 2019. The more we see of Taylor-Joy, the better.
The Secret of Marrowbone will be out in cinemas on Friday 13th July.
