The first trailer has arrived for Separation, the new horror movie from William Brent Bell (The Boy).
In the film, 8-year-old Jenny is constantly caught in the middle of the feuding between her lawyer mother Maggie and artist father Jeff. She leads a lonely but imaginative life, surrounded by puppets called “Grisly Kin,” which are based on the works of her father.
When Maggie is tragically killed in a hit-and-run, Jeff and Jenny try to piece together a new life. But when Maggie’s father sues for custody, and babysitter Samantha tries to be the new woman of the house, life in their Brooklyn townhome takes a dark turn. The puppets and frightening characters come to life, but Jenny is the only person who can see them. And when the motives of the ghoulish creatures become clear, the lives of everyone are put very much in jeopardy…
Separation stars Rupert Friend (The Death of Stalin), Violet McGraw (The Haunting of Hill House), Mamie Gummer (The Ward), Madeline Brewer (Cam), and Brian Cox (Manhunter), with the always entertaining Troy James (Anything for Jackson) playing a twisted new creation. The film was written by Nick Amadeus and Josh Braun, and is set for release in theatres on April 30th.
