The Turning Director Floria Sigismondi on What Inspired Her to Become a Filmmaker

If you’ve seen a music video during the mid-90s, chances are you’re familiar with Floria Sigismondi. The filmmaker cut her teeth directing the biggest music stars of the time – most notably Marilyn Manson’s “The Beautiful People.” Sigismondi’s jittery camera-work and brooding, gothic images were pretty much the de-facto look of the 90s alt-rock scene. Recently, the filmmaker’s begun to branch out into directing features – first the underrated bio-flick The Runaways and now The Turning, an adaption of Henry James’ ghostly novella.

In The Turning, a new governess (Mackenzie Davis) is tasked with taking care of two orphaned children (Finn Wolfhard & Brooklynn Prince) at their palatial estate. However, things take a turn for the sinister when the governess discovers her predecessor disappeared under mysterious circumstances, and she begins to be haunted by less-than-welcoming apparitions. The film is the perfect vehicle for Sigismondi’s visual aesthetic, allowing her to go full gothic horror – in particular, there’s a close-up of an eye that reveals far more and the most haunting credit sequence in quite some time.

In the following interview with Sigismondi, she discusses what drew her to becoming a filmmaker, transitioning to features, and how the script for The Turning changed when she came aboard.





Mackenzie Davis on ‘The Turning’ and Whether She Believes in the Supernatural

It feels like Mackenzie Davis is just on the brink of movie stardom. The actress stole scenes opposite Ryan Gosling and Charlize Theron in Blade Runner 2049 and Tully, respectively. Then – there was her heartbreaking turn in “San Junipero”, widely-lauded as the best Black Mirror episode. And recently, she, of course, headlined the latest Terminator, cementing herself as a bonafide action heroine. With The Turning, Davis takes a turn at the horror genre – yet there’s far more to her performance than just the typical ‘scream-queen.’

On the surface, The Turning seems like a relatively by-the-numbers haunted house story: A governess (Davis) comes to tend to two orphaned children, only to discover they may be haunted by less-than-kind spirits. But underneath the ghosts popping out from darkened corners, lies a film about the ramifications of trauma and how madness can take hold if not properly treated. Davis is in pretty much every scene of the film – and The Turning works because of her, Davis so innately sympathetic you never question her motives… until, well, it’s far too late.

In the following interview with Davis, she reveals what she would do if confronted by a ghost, what scares her the most, and her preparation process.





Finn Wolfhard & Brooklynn Prince on The Turning and Stranger Things 4

If you’ve seen a music video during the mid-90s, chances are you’re familiar with Floria Sigismondi. The filmmaker cut her teeth directing the biggest music stars of the time – most notably Marilyn Manson’s “The Beautiful People.” Sigismondi’s jittery camera-work and brooding, gothic images were pretty much the de-facto look of the 90s alt-rock scene. Recently, the filmmaker’s begun to branch out into directing features – first the underrated bio-flick The Runaways and now The Turning, an adaption of Henry James’ ghostly novella.

In The Turning, the two costar as Miles and Flora, two recently orphaned children put under the care of a new governess (Mackenzie Davis) at their vast estate. Of course, nothing is as it seems – as the governess discovers her predecessor disappeared under mysterious circumstances and the house (and by proxy, children) may be haunted.

In the following interview with Finn Wolfhard and Brooklynn Prince, they reveal their favorite horror films, what scares them the most, and how they prepare for big emotional scenes. In addition, Wolfhard discusses when he’ll be shooting Stranger Things 4.

Floria Sigismondi’s The Turning doesn’t really have an ending. It just stops, leaving viewers to puzzle over the surreal images that close out the film. If you, like everyone else, were baffled by the horror flick’s bizarre ending, we’re here to help.
