Kate Beckinsale’s Eliza Graves now has a movie poster attached to it. The horror film just recently wrapped up filming just barely making it to the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Eliza Graves takes a lot of the source material from Edgar Allan Poe; an 1845 short story titled “The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether” and is directed by Brad Anderson (Session 9, The Call, “Almost Human”) so you know there is some high expectations here.
The cast includes Kate Beckinsale, Jim Sturgess, Ben Kingsley, Michael Caine, Brendan Gleeson, David Thewlis, Jason Flemyng, and Sinead Cusack. Producers are Bruce Davey, Mel Gibson, and Mark Amin with David Higgins, Christa Campbell, Cami Winikoff, Mark Gill, and Lati Grobman executive producing.
Synopsis: A recent medical school grad who takes a position at a mental institution soon finds himself taken with one of his colleagues--though he has no initial idea of a recent, horrifying staffing change.
Directed by Brad Anderson
Official Synopsis: A couple of days before 1899 Christmas, the Oxford new graduate Dr. Edward Newgate arrives at the Stonehearst Asylum to complete training for his specialty of asylum medicine. He is met by armed men who take him to Dr. Silas Lamb, who welcomes his help and takes him under his wing. Edward is shocked to see the methods that Dr Lamb uses to run this asylum. He becomes infatuated with Eliza Graves, one of the patients who is a lady of status and does not seem to belong. One night, Edward overhears a knocking from the bowels of the facility and is shocked to find that everything is not as it seems in this place and that his uneasy feelings may be justified. What will Edward Choose?
