Release Date: November 17, 2017
Thoughts: I’m all for a period set horror show but when a movie is described as David Lynch channeling Henry James, I’m especially down for some Gothic terror. Based on Arthur Phillips 2007 novel of the same name, Angelica was completed several years ago but is just now making its way to a larger audience. Victorian ghost stories are usually a lot of fun and this trailer hints at what scary things director Mitchell Lichtenstein (Teeth) has up star Jena Malone’s high bodice. While she’s a far cry from her precocious childhood days, Malone has been making some bold choices in the last few years (see The Neon Demon…or better yet…just take my word for it) so I’m curious to see what she’ll bring to this supernatural tale. Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs), Ed Stoppard, and the late great Charles Keating round out the cast.
