American Zoetrope have released the first official trailer for Twixt, which – at over three minutes – provides a decent insight into the upcoming horror-thriller.

Directed by Francis Ford Coppola (Apocalypse Now), Twixt stars Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning, Ben Chaplin, Joanne Whalley, David Paymer and Ryan Simpkins.

Synopsis: A writer with a declining career arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He’s unsure of her connection to the murder in the town, but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated.

Twixt is scheduled to premiere at the 36th annual Toronto International Film Festival next month, and is likely to hit UK cinema screens early next year once a distributor has been found.
