Mary Harron Interview On Gothic Horror 'The Moth Diaries'

The R-Rated The Moth Diaries is Mary Harron's new horror film.

Two Promotional Posters for Director Mary Harron’s The Moth Diaries

After delivering two thoroughly enjoyable motion pictures — namely, 2000′s “American Psycho” and 2005′s “The Notorious Bettie Page” — director Mary Harron disappeared into the world of television, directing a handful of episodes for a few critically-acclaimed shows. Thankfully, Harron is returning to feature-length territory with the upcoming thriller “Moth Diaries”, which stars Lily Cole, Scott Speedman, and Sarah Bolger. Sure, it’s essentially a teenage vampire flick, but I have high hopes that Harron will handle the material smartly. Then again, David Slade did direct “Eclipse”. That just proves that talent does not always equal quality. I’m just saying. A synopsis? You know it: At an exclusive girls’ boarding school, a sixteen-year-old girl records her most intimate thoughts in a diary. The object of her growing obsession is her roommate, Lucy Blake, and Lucy’s friendship with their new and disturbing classmate. Ernessa is a mysterious, moody presence with pale skin and hypnotic eyes.
