A young Vietnamese maid has an encounter with a vengeful ghost when she's hired to work at an old plantation mansion in the new U.S. trailer for the supernatural horror movie "The Housemaid."

Written and directed by first-time feature filmmaker Derek Nguyen and produced by acclaimed Vietnamese filmmaker Timothy Linh Bui (Green Dragon, Three Seasons), "The Housemaid" is set in 1953 French-ruled Vietnam and revolves around a "forbidden love", a "deadly secret" and an "angry spirit."

Starring Kate Nhung, Jean-Michel Richaud, and Rosie Fellner, "The Housemaid" was a major box-office hit in Vietnam back in 2016, but is now getting a U.S. release next month, hitting theaters and VOD on February 23rd

synopsis:
A forbidden passion awakens vengeful spirits within a haunted mansion in this bloodcurdling, erotic tour-de-force. Vietnam, 1953: Linh (Kate Nhung), a poor, orphaned young woman, finds employment as a housemaid in a crumbling rubber plantation presided over by the emotionally fragile French officer Sebastien Laurent (Jean-Michel Richaud). Soon, a torrid love affair develops between the two -- a taboo romance that rouses the ghost of Laurent's dead wife, who won't rest until blood flows. Submerged in moody Gothic atmosphere, this stylish supernatural saga confronts the dark shadows of Vietnam's colonial past while delivering heart-stopping scares.
