Teaser Trailer for Haunted House Horror Movie The Turning Premieres [VIDEO]

A trailer for Amblin's supernatural horror thriller The Turning has been unleashed upon us. From a first look, it appears to be a good old-fashioned gothic horror tale with creepy young children and an old haunted house caretaker at its core. I'll be honest, a lot of the dialogue feels a bit forced and clunky.

Check out the trailer after the jump.

Finn Wolfhard is cast again in a genre film, which he is quickly becoming a staple of. Depending on how he feels about being a known horror staple, the talented young actor definitely has a future ahead of him in the world of thrills, chills, and scares. Not to say he hasn't shown enough talent to break out into more different types of characters.

The Turning is rated PG-13 for terror, violence, disturbing images, brief strong language and some suggestive content. It looks like there is a sequence where the lead actress is in her panties, but aside from that there doesn't look to be any nudity. As far as the tone and look of the movie, I'm sold on it's dark and dreary visuals which almost give it a timeless feel.

Hired to take care of two orphans, a young nanny starts to believe that their country mansion is haunted.

The Turning will take place in theaters on January 24th, 2020.
