I can’t say I’m all that familiar with author Shirley Jackson’s work but her final novel is now being adapted to the big screen. The trailer for “We Have Always Lived in a Castle” has dropped with an intriguing premise and starring two impressive young actresses, Taissa Farmiga and Alexandra Daddario.
The film looks to be a rather twisted thriller set mostly in an remote family estate in New England. The Blackwood family has been stricken with tragedy and there is no shortage of talk coming from the judgmental local townsfolk. But their isolation is threatened when a peculiar cousin (Sebastian Stan) pops up. Let’s just say weird stuff ensues.
I like the vibe it gives off and the tone is both eerie and a bit off-kilter. It looks promising. “We Have Always Lived in a Castle” opens May 17th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or giving it a pass.
