Henry James’s 1898 tale The Turn of the Screw is coming back to haunt modern audiences in The Turning.

Now set in the 1990s, Mackenzie Davis stars as a nanny who accepts a job looking after two orphans at a large Maine estate, one which she soon learns harbours a whole bunch of dark secrets.

Finn Wolfhard from Stranger Things, Joely Richardson and Brooklynn Prince (The Florida Project) also star.

Adapted by The Conjuring writers Chad Hayes and Carey W. Hayes, The Turning opens in US cinemas in January, 2020. We await an Australian release date.
