The Moth Diaries First Look

No Introduction Necessary. Canadian filmmaker Mary Harron, who brought us the brilliant American Psycho in 2000 but hasn't done much since, is back with her latest feature film - The Moth Diaries. It's premiering at the Toronto Film Festival this fall, and as we wait until the fest kicks off, has posted four new first look photos (via The Playlist) worth looking at. A few of them are just dainty shots of the girls, but there's at least one that has quite a bit of blood in it. The Moth Diaries stars Lily Cole, Sarah Bolger and Scott Speedman in a story about a girl at a boarding school who suspects her roommate is a vampire.

We need a trailer! Acclaimed director Mary Harron returns to the Toronto Film Festival with this chilling and evocative vampire tale set at an all-girl boarding school. Based on the popular novel by Rachel Klein, The Moth Diaries is a sinister and sensually modern film about dark pasts, the circulation of desire and the fragile line between the real and imagined. Harron's past work includes I Shot Andy Warhol, American Psycho and The Notorious Bettie Page previously, as well as lots of TV work and a few short films, too. This is premiering at the Toronto Film Fest this year. I'll be there and will definitely try and catch a screening.

Lagoya, The solution to boredom of vampire films is to not watch them? Whether or not The Moth Diaries will turn out to be "canon" in vampire mythos, we shall see. And, no, I havent read the book, but I'll give the movie a chance.

Never heard of the book and the premise sounds like a landfill. The pictures aren't meant to sell this movie - are they? But... Mary Harron is a gifted filmmaker. We'll see.
