Available everywhere now from KRO Records / Sony Music Masterworks, THE TURNING (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) garnered extensive critical acclaim upon its release earlier this year. In addition to plugs from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, NME and more, Thrillist raved, “Not only does The Turning soundtrack effectively capture the maddening tone, it’s an impressive, entirely original compilation,” and Billboard observed, “The soundtrack is not only a reflection of the film’s bone-chilling themes, but the strength that comes with female voices joining together.”
For more than 100 years, a deeply haunting tale has been passed down to terrify audiences. This past January, DreamWorks Pictures’ The Turning takes us to a mysterious estate in the Maine countryside, where newly appointed nanny Kate is charged with the care of two disturbed orphans, Flora and Miles. Quickly though, she discovers that both the children and the house are harboring dark secrets and things may not be as they appear.
Inspired by Henry James’ landmark novel, the haunted-house thriller is directed by spellbinding visualist Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale) and stars Mackenzie Davis (Terminator: Dark Fate, The Martian), Finn Wolfhard (It, Netflix’s Stranger Things), newcomer Brooklynn Prince (The Florida Project) and Joely Richardson (Red Sparrow, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).
From writers Chad Hayes & Carey W. Hayes (The Conjuring), The Turning is produced by Scott Bernstein (Straight Outta Compton, Ride Along 2 ) and Roy Lee (It, The Lego Movie). Universal will release The Turning domestically and in select international territories. www.theturningmovie.com
