Forbidden Romance Turns Deadly in the Trailer for Lizzie

I love all things related to the Lizzie Borden murders. It’s just such a fascinating story/mystery and I watch just about anything related to it. A new film is launching next month that takes a different approach to the story, and it’s first trailer is pretty damn great: 

I’m loving the sense of tension present throughout this trailer, almost feeling more like a horror movie than a period drama and it’s pretty effective. Color me intrigued!

Academy Award® nominee Chloë Sevigny (Boys Don’t Cry, “Big Love”) stars as Lizzie Borden, the notorious woman at the heart of one of the most enduring mysteries in American history. After a lifetime of loneliness, Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in housemaid Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart) and their secret intimacy sparks an unthinkable act. Director Craig William Macneill (The Boy (2015), “Channel Zero: Candle Cove”) explores the days leading up to the savage crimes in a dark tale of repression, exploitation and thwarted dreams.

Lizzie hits theaters on September 14, 2018
