the-darkness-1

We landed the AFM sales art for The Darkness, which will topline Mary Elizabeth Winstead as an American student looking after her tutor’s two children in a remote English manor house. She soon comes to believe that she and the children are being haunted when their lives are threatened by mysterious events.

The Last Exorcism‘s Daniel Stamm directs the pic being sold by Hanway.

Megan Holley penned the screenplay, “Sally, a young American student, becomes obsessed with her charismatic professor, Charles. He convinces Sally to spend the summer babysitting his two young children at his country estate. When Charles goes on a business trip Sally finds herself alone in the remote and imposing mansion. She suspects that the children know something about the house that they are not telling her, or perhaps it’s the house itself that is keeping secrets.

    I swear this is the plot for the Anna Paquin film of the same name from 2002. Sounds eerily familiar.

      The plot is lifted from “The Turn of the Screw.” It’s probably the hundredth movie inspired by that story. Still, “The Last Exorcism” was surprisingly good, so this is worth keeping an eye on.

      Yep, “The Turn of the screw” but still looks like Ana Paquin’s one also called DARKNESS.

      I really dont dont think it sounds like Anna Paquin’s “Darkness” that was about human sacrifice and darkness…but we should see.
