Fabien M., our good overseas pal, just sent in several new looks at Akiva Goldsman’s Stephanie, which originally premiered back in May at the Overlook Film Festival. Kalyn caught the world premiere and wrote that “Stephanie is a mixed bag of innovative ideas and an overabundance of exposition.”
Stephanie is, a supernatural horror-thriller written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, the duo behind our SiREN as well as The Orchard’s excellent Super Dark Times.
The story centers on a young girl named Stephanie (Shree Crooks) who is abandoned by her parents, forced to survive on peanut butter and conversations with her toy turtle. When her parents return to claim their daughter, they find dark supernatural forces are wreaking havoc, with Stephanie at the center of the turmoil.
It stars Frank Grillo (The Purge: Anarchy), Anna Torv (“Fringe”), and Shree Crooks (“American Horror Story”).
Still no word on a U.S. release but we’ll keep you posted.
