Emelia Clarke takes on another genre, this time a haunting thriller set in an isolated castle in 1950s Tuscany. The movie captures the period and the atmosphere perfectly, that no matter what is going on you still feel uneasy.

Verena (Emilia Clarke) is a determined young nurse hired to help a mute young heir (Edward Dring) within an isolated castle in Tuscany. The more she observes the boy, the more Verena becomes convinced he has fallen under the spell of a powerful and otherworldly persona trapped in the villa’s stone walls, one that seems to be rapidly entwining with her own.

For fans of horror it may be refreshing to see Clarke’s expressive eyebrows provide a new lead in the genre that churns out endless titles with forgettable leads. The setting is perfect for a gothic horror and the castle in itself is a character that lends to the story. Although it was not an in your face horror, the cinematography captured the atmosphere.

If you enjoy a horror of a different kind that uses the historical period to create another layer of storytelling, you will enjoy this film.
