"No matter where you go, there you are."


Watch the trailer for the new adaptation of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper

A dark and disturbing contemporary adaptation of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s well-known and controversial gothic feminist horror story about patriarchy and mental health. The film is a collaboration between partners Alexandra Loreth and Kevin Pontuti and stars Alexandra Loreth, Joe Mullins, Clara Hart, and Jeanne O’Connor.

Jane, a writer and young mother, is prescribed a rest treatment by her physician husband John, who takes her to a remote country estate for the summer. She becomes obsessed with the peculiar yellow wallpaper in the bedroom he has chosen for her. In her isolation, she secretly writes about a woman trapped in the wallpaper—that she must free.

I read the book a few years ago and thought it was excellent and rather creepy. It reminded me of Guy de Maupassant’s The Horla and some of H.P. Lovecraft’s tales.

It will be interesting to see how it has been adapted to film.

The film was written by Alexandra Loreth and Kevin Pontuti and directed by Pontuti. Check out the official site.

The Yellow Wallpaper has a running time of 99 minutes and will not be rated by the MPAA.
