“Twisty” Troy James has lent his unique talents to a handful of horror projects in recent years, using his remarkable and unnerving contortion skills to bring terrifying creatures to the screen in “Channel Zero,” Hellboy, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, and Anything for Jackson. James is back in Separation, the new horror film from director William Brent Bell (The Boy).
Meet Twisty Troy’s latest twisted creation in the official trailer below.
Separation will release in theaters on April 30.
In the film, “Eight-year-old Jenny (Violet McGraw) is constantly caught in the middle of the feuding between her lawyer mother Maggie (Mamie Gummer) and artist father Jeff (Rupert Friend). She leads a lonely but imaginative life, surrounded by puppets called “Grisly Kin”, which are based on the works of her father. When Maggie is tragically killed in a hit-and-run, Jeff and Jenny try to piece together a new life. But when Maggie’s father (Brian Cox) sues for custody, and babysitter Samantha (Madeline Brewer) tries to be the new woman of the house, life in their Brooklyn townhome takes a dark turn. The puppets and frightening characters come to life and Jenny is the only person who can see them.”
“When the motives of the ghoulish creatures become clear, the lives of everyone are put very much in jeopardy.”
Nick Amadeus and Josh Braun wrote Separation.
In addition to The Boy and Brahms: The Boy II, William Brent Bell also directed The Devil Inside. One of his next projects is Orphan: First Kill, a prequel to the 2009 movie Orphan.
