The Little Stranger trailer: Lenny Abrahamson directs Domhnall Gleeson in a mysterious family horror

Lenny Abrahamson's Room was tailor made for the Academy and picked up a healthy number of nominations despite not walking away with any. The Irish director returns with his new film, dipping his toe into the horror field by adapting Sarah Waters' book The Little Stranger. It stars Domhnall Gleeson - the man who seems to have appeared in everything over the past few years - and takes place just after World War I. To get a better idea take a look at the first trailer for The Little Stranger above.

The film tells the story of Dr Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1947, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked. The Hall has been home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries. But it is now in decline and its inhabitants - mother, son and daughter - are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely, and how terrifyingly, the family's story is about to become entwined with his own.

Abrahamson directs Gleeson in the lead role with Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling and Will Poulter also appearing in the cast.

The Little Stranger hasn't been given a fixed date just yet but expect to see it in UK cinemas sometime after October 2018.
