In The Messengers, a thriller starring Kristen Stewart as Jess, Dylan McDermott and Penelope Ann Miller as Jess' parents Roy and Denise Solomon and John Corbett as field hand John Burwell, the Solomon family has left the fast paced life of Chicago for the secluded world of a North Dakota farm. Amidst the tranquil sway of the farm's field of sunflowers, Jess, 16, soon realizes how terrifying seclusion can be when she and her brother Ben, 3, begin seeing ominous apparitions invisible to everyone else. When those specters become violent, Jess' sanity is questioned--a double jeopardy for the tormented teen. Her troublesome past comes face to face with the past of those who once lived in the house, a perilous confrontation that leaves her believability in question with those she desperately tries to warn before it is too late.

Our Expectations

With a solid cast, filmmakers with a passion for horror, and an atmospheric vibe, The Messengers seems like it has all the necessary ingredients to be an awesome supernatural thriller...

The Cast. Dylan McDermott was always good at delivering intensity on TV's The Practice; John Corbett could really dive into a character in the short-lived FX series Lucky; and central star Kristen Stewart has already amassed an impressive resume with films ranging from studio adventures like Zathura to acclaimed dramas like Speak (personally, I feel she's poised to have a Jodie Foster-like career, and not just because she coincidentally played her daughter in Panic Room).

The Filmmakers. Twin brothers Danny and Oxide Pang, who garnered a fanbase with The Eye, a cult horror hit about a blind girl plagued by nightmarish images after receiving a cornea transplant, are co-directing this project. Meanwhile, Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures is producing, putting The Messengers in the same stable of films as other potentially cool upcoming thrillers like 30 Days of Night, The Monkey's Paw, and Rise.

The Vibe. With a family haunted by the paranormal on their isolated farm, The Messengers feels a bit like Signs--arguably M. Night Shyamalan's best movie. Plus, the rows and rows of sunflowers suggests a Twilight Zone-ish cornfield, yes?
