Talented actress Aisling Franciosi returns to the horror genre in the upcoming movie Stopmotion. A brand new trailer has been unveiled today, giving an unsettling look at the pupaphobia-inducing film.

Directed by Robert Morgan, the film stars Franciosi as Ella Blake, a stop-motion animator who is struggling to control her demons after the loss of her overbearing mother. Suddenly alone in the world, she embarks upon the creation of a macabre new puppet film. As Ella’s mind starts to fracture, the characters in her animated film take on a terrifying life of their own, and the unleashed power of her imagination threatens to destroy her.

Stopmotion also stars Stella Gonet and Tom York in the film penned by Robert Morgan and Robin King.

Franciosi’s previous roles in films like The Nightingale and more recently, The Last Voyage of the Demeter (coming to Paramount+ this February), and this massive hit series “Game of Thrones,” prove her talent for playing dark, emotional characters that are easy to identify with. So, there is no doubt that she will give a powerhouse performance in Stopmotion.
