Bel Powley (the breakout star of the 2015 Sundance hit "The Diary of a Teenage Girl") gets in touch with her inner wild child in the trailer for the upcoming she-wolf-tinged horror thriller "Wildling."

Also starring Liv Tyler (HBO's The Leftovers) as a small-town sheriff, the film focuses on a 16-year-old girl named Anna (Powley) who is found by the police caged up in her father's attic. After being raised in isolation and locked away against her will for most of her life, Anna is suddenly freed to explore the outside world for the first time. But despite her newfound freedom, Anna remains petrified of her father's old folk tales of the "Wildling," a mythical lycanthrope beast with which she shares a common and growing bloodlust.

Directed and co-written by German filmmaker Fritz Bohm, and co-starring veteran character actor Brad Dourif (Chucky, The Lord of the Rings, Deadwood), "Wildling" will be released next month on Friday the 13th in select theaters and on VOD, beginning April 13th.

synopsis:
A teenage girl's coming of age comes with a terrifying twist in this spellbinding take on the werewolf legend. Since birth, Anna (Bel Powley) has been raised in isolation by a man she knows only as Daddy (Chucky star Brad Dourif) who has done everything possible to conceal the truth about the girl's origins from her. But when the teenage Anna is suddenly thrust into the real world under the protection of no-nonsense police officer Ellen (Liv Tyler), it soon becomes clear that the young woman is far from ordinary. Unable to adjust to a normal life, Anna finds herself drawn instead to the wild freedom of the forest while struggling to resist the growing bloodlust that has awakened inside her. This moodily atmospheric thriller combines supernatural scares with a myth-like tale of self discovery.
