A new trailer has been released for the suspense thriller “We Have Always Lived in the Castle” for Further Films and Great Point Media. The film premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival last year and will premiere on VOD on May 17th.
An adaptation of the 1962 story by “The Haunting of Hill House” author Shirley Jackson, the story centers on an isolated family that has already lost four members to poisoning.
The remainder uses rituals and talismans to keep themselves away from hostile townspeople. A distant cousin (Sebastian Stan) arrives intent on maliciously securing the family’s fortune, and whose arrival sets in motion the uncovering of family secrets.
Stacie Passon directs from a script she co-wrote with Mark Kruger. The property was previously translated into a play and a musical, but hasn’t been done on film before.
