IFC Midnight finally unleash the first trailer and official poster for American Psycho director’s latest chiller, ‘The Moth Diaries’

Director Mary Harron, who was responsible for the superb American Psycho, has directed a new chiller titled The Moth Diaries. The film is an adaptation of the novel written by Rachel Klein, and has been slowly building up a fearsome reputation. Some are saying the film is awful, others are saying it is very good. Whichever it is, check out the trailer embedded below and see for yourself. Recently there was also a two minute clip released from the film, and I have included that for your viewing pleasure.

IFC Midnight are normally very good at picking top quality horrors, and after watching the trailer for this, I have to admit I am very intrigued. I love the overall Gothic feel to the setting, the boarding school is a great place for some supernatural chills, and the atmosphere given off in both the trailer and clip lead me to believe this will be one of those films that gets under your skin. It appears from what I have seen that The Moth Diaries will (hopefully) be one of those slow building, moody and creepy horrors that get inside your head and stays there for weeks. Then again, it could be as bad as some people are saying. Me, I would like to stay optimistic.

The film stars Lily Cole, Sarah Bolger, Sarah Gadon and Scott Speedman.


Adolescence is and always will be a time of intense emotional confusion, especially if you spend it in a closed environment. That’s the case with Rebecca, a young girl haunted by her father’s suicide, who is a student at an exclusive female boarding school. She pours her heart out in a diary, much of it focused on Lucy, her beloved roommate. Their relationship changes drastically with the arrival of a mysterious new student, Ernessa. As Lucy abandons her for this new girl, Rebecca becomes consumed with thoughts of jealousy and suspicion — Ernessa is dangerous, evil, a vampire. Is there any truth to all this or is Rebecca slipping into insanity?

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
