And we think you'll agree after you watch the trailer -- Scott Speedman's voice-over is laying some pretty heavy hints as to what's going on with the new girl in school.
Mary Harron, the lady director behind "I Shot Andy Warhol," "American Psycho" and "The Notorious Bettie Page," has called class back in session with "The Moth Diaries," a wicked-looking reverse-take of sorts on Dario Argento's "Suspiria" in which Rebecca (Sarah Bolger), a student at a boarding school, becomes suspicious of the "new girl," Edessa (Lily Cole), who could be harboring a dark secret (again, our guess is that she's a vampire, but we could be wrong).
The trailer gives the impression that the film could most definitely be guilty of over-explaining itself in a rather heavy-handed way (oh look, the students just so happen to be studying vampire fiction in class at the same time as the new girl's arrival!), but it's also chock full of creepy atmosphere and imagery that makes it look downright delicious. Scott Speedman, as the school's literature teacher, kind of sums it all up: "Sex, blood and death." It's probably useless to resist.
(One note: We wonder how Bret Easton Ellis feels about Mary Harron being credited as "The WRITER/Director of 'American Psycho.'" Yeah, she adapted the screenplay and all, but still.)
