One way to judge the potential of a horror movie is based on how many times you say "Nope" while watching the trailer. I certainly said that a lot while watching the preview for Separation, from the director of past horror hits like The Devil Inside and The Boy.
Rupert Friend plays Jeff, distraught over the loss of his wife Maggie (Mamie Gummer). Now a single dad raising his daughter Jenny (Violet McGraw), he starts unraveling after Jenny starts acting out and seeing her puppets come to life at night. Things escalate when Jeff and the nanny (Madeline Brewer) start seeing the puppets too. The cast of the film also includes the great Brian Cox as Maggie's mother, as well as Simon Quarterman (Westworld) and horror monster MVP Troy James (Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, Channel Zero).
Separation will have a limited release on Friday, April 30.
