‘Haunting of the Queen Mary’ Trailer Sets Sail on Halloween 1938

The official trailer has just dropped for Haunting of the Queen Mary, a brand new horror movie that takes place on Halloween in 1938.

The film is based on the real-life ocean liner the Queen Mary, which is said to be one of the most haunted places in the world.

The official synopsis describes the film as “a psychological horror which explores the mysterious and violent events surrounding one family’s voyage on Halloween night (1938) and their interwoven destiny with another family onboard the infamous ocean liner present day,” as the two families become “violently entangled” in the haunting ghost story.

Directed by Gary Shore (Dracula Untold), the film stars Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness), Joel Fry (Game of Thrones), Nell Hudson (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), William Shockley (Death in Texas), and BAFTA award-winner Lenny Rush (Am I Being Unreasonable?).

Stephen Oliver and Tom Vaughan wrote the script with revisions by Shore, and the film is produced by Brett Matthew Tomberlin (Winchester) of Imagination Design Works; Thorsten Schumacher of Rocket Science; Lars Sylvest; Nigel Sinclair and Nicholas Ferrall of White Horse Pictures (The Woman in Black); and Mali Elfman.

Haunting of the Queen Mary will be released in select theaters and On Demand on August 18, from Vertical Entertainment.
