Screen Anarchy shares the first teaser trailer for Alexandra Loreth and Kevin Pontuti‘s gothic feminist horror film The Yellow Wallpaper, an adaptation of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story by the same name from 1892.
“The original story itself was lauded by Lovecraft in his 1927 essay Supernatural Horror in Literature,” notes the site.
The duo co-wrote the screenplay with Alexandra starring in “a chilling and boldly original vision of madness.”
In the film…
“Jane, a writer and young mother, is prescribed a rest treatment by her physician husband John, who takes her to a remote country estate for the summer. She becomes obsessed with the peculiar yellow wallpaper in the bedroom he has chosen for her. In her isolation, she secretly writes about a woman trapped in the wallpaper—that she must free.”
The film is set to World Premiere at Cinequest on March 20th.
