The full trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s new movie Mother!, dropped in the dead of night by Paramount, manifests whispered insinuations from its teaser, showing visuals to accompany snippets of dialogue edited into that previous promo. That means we get to see Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer as the mystery couple who upend Jennifer Lawrence’s bucolic existence restoring an isolated country house with husband Javier Bardem, and the Rosemary’s Baby-esque implications of their visit. There’s also a secret door behind a bloody symbol on the basement wall reminiscent of Lucio Fulci’s The Beyond, and a flashlight-wielding mob descending on the house like the zombies in the late, lamented George Romero’s Night Of The Living Dead.
All this, plus Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence losing her shit in reaction to these sinister happenings, seems to promise a nerve-jangling experience when Mother! premieres on September 15.
