Emilia Clarke Could Sure Use a Dragon to Save Her in the Creepy Voice From the Stone Trailer

Recommended Videos

Voice From the Stone is an upcoming thriller set in a misty Italian castle and starring the actress otherwise known as Khaleesi. The trailer makes it look as though The Turn of the Screw had a demonic tryst with “The Cask of Amontillado.” And maybe Rebecca was watching.

Here’s the official line on what’s happening in Voice From the Stone, which is due April 24:

Voice From the Stone is the haunting story of Verena (Clarke), a solemn nurse drawn to aid a young boy named Jakob (Edward Dring) who has fallen silent since the untimely death of his mother nearly a year ago. Living with his father (Marton Csokas) in a massive stone manor in Tuscany, Jakob not only refuses to speak — he seems to be under the spell of a malevolent force trapped within the stone walls. As Verena’s relationship with the father and son grow, she becomes ensnared and consumed by the severe force. If she is to save the boy, and free herself, she must face the phantom hidden inside the stone.

While a lot of the themes in the trailer feel like mainstays that we’ve seen before, isn’t there always more room for a determined heroine in gothic environs pulled into the orbit of a problem child and said child’s mysterious, sexy single father?

What really intrigues me with movies like this is whether they’ll go full-on supernatural horror or else end up ascribing the terrors here to “natural” causes and purposeful manipulation. I have to admit, I have a weakness for the latter.

What do you think of the trailer? And while we’re on the topic, do you think the ghosts are real in Turn of the Screw or a figment of the governess’ imagination? Tell me in the comments. I could talk about Turn of the Screw theories all day.
