Ray and Jamie Winstone are leading us through a very dark fairy tale if the new trailer for Elfie Hopkins is to be believed.

Father and daughter Winstone are joined by Kimberley Nixon, Rupert Evans, Kate Magowan and Steven Mackintosh, who always adds something a little interesting into the mix.

The official plot gives nothing away except for the bare bones, to whit:

An aspiring teen detective stumbles into her first real case, when investigating the mysterious new family in her neighborhood.

So far, so Nancy Drew. However what I liked about this trailer is that it could just as easily be showcasing a family friendly, if a touch dark, comedy with some beautiful, almost ethereal shots of forestland before the tone starts to shift like a dream slipping into a nightmare. Very nicely done too. Kudos trailermakers.

Here’s the trailer and a look at the poster, which isn’t new but included here in case you fancied taking a butchers.
