Starring Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and set in a gorgeously ominous castle, the new gothic thriller Voice from the Stone is now out in theaters and on VOD and Digital HD from Momentum Pictures, and we caught up with the film's director, Eric D. Howell, for our latest Q&A feature, and we've also been provided with a new clip from the movie.
Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Eric. What attracted you to this story and made you want to bring Andrew Shaw’s adaptation of Silvio Raffo’s novel to life on the big screen?
Eric D. Howell: The script was one that literally made me want to read under a blanket with a flashlight. It had familiar gothic motifs, but told a story about love, loss, grief, and fear in a way that was completely compelling and original. Andrew is »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.
The last weekend of April, and the “slower” spring movie season is ending this weekend, leading directly into the start of the lucrative summer box office next week. As has been the case in past years, the last couple weekends in April see a couple movies hoping to bring in any amount of money before the first big summer blockbuster, and other movies that will steal away their theaters. Last weekend was pretty sad, but hopefully a few of this weekend’s movies will fare better.
The movie that stands the best chance at finding an audience this weekend is the tech industry thriller The Circle »

For Eric D. Howell, getting to direct Voice from the Stone has been a journey years in the making.
The Minnesota native has worked his way up in the business, getting his start as a crewmember in Saint Paul on films such as The Mighty Ducks and Mallrats and working lighting for fellow Minnesotan Prince.
"I didn't know enough to be intimidated by him. He kept asking me back," Howell says with a laugh of his younger days working with the late music icon.
Now, the filmmaker is poised to release his feature directorial debut, with Voice from the Stone opening later »

Looks like Emilia Clarke will need to summon her inner Khaleesi. A trailer has been released for the “Game of Thrones” actress’ next film, “Voice from the Stone,” and the footage suggests that her character could use some help from the Mother of Dragons and her fire-breathing friends.
When the spot kicks off, it seems as though the film will be a tearjerker. Verena (Clarke), a nurse, has come to live in the home of a young boy who has fallen silent following the sudden death of his mother. “He saw terrible things. He heard terrible things,” Verena is told. She’s committed to helping him cope, but what seems like a story of grief and recovery quickly goes in an unexpectedly creepy direction. The boy claims to hear his mother’s voice in the wall, and according to his father, he doesn’t want Verena around. And it looks like he — and his late mother — are willing to do pretty much anything to get her out of their home. Cue terrifying footage of some of the awful situations Verena finds herself in. Whether you’re claustrophobic or afraid of heights, there’s something in this trailer to make your skin crawl.

It has emerged Emilia Clarke has a passion for roles in which she is brought in to help or even nurse those in need of help. Firstly in last year’s Me Before You alongside Sam Claflin now in supernatural thriller Voice from the Stone, judging from the trailer this one will send shivers down your spine.
Whilst there is a melancholy beauty set within the eerie tones of the trailer, all appears to be well at first as Clarke, who plays the hired young nurse, Verena, is brought into the fold to help a young boy come out of his self-induced silence after his mother dies. However, after a series of strange events that almost drives her insane, she becomes a victim of abduction and sinister supernatural incidents eventually showing her in a broken state.

"The voice is real." Momentum Pictures has debuted a trailer for a thriller set in Tuscany titled Voice from the Stone, adapted from an Italian novel. Described as a "haunting and suspenseful romance set in 1950s Tuscany" at a 15th-century Italian castle, this Hitchcockian fairytale stars actress Emilia Clarke as Verena, a nurse who cares for a boy who has stopped speaking after the sudden death of his mother. While caring for him, she suddenly starts to hear the eerie voice of the boy's dead mother, making her wonder if she is ill as well. The cast includes Marton Csokas, Caterina Murino, Remo Girone, Lisa Gastoni, and Edward Dring. This looks like a very moody, atmospheric thriller with some sleek cinematography. Check this out. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Eric D. Howell's Voice from the Stone, direct from YouTube: Set in the 1950s in Tuscany, Italy, Voice from the Stone »

Last time Emilia Clarke got a break from fantasy and fire-spewing dragons, the actress headlined Me Before You, an admittedly soppy romantic drama in which she played Louisa Clark, a working-class carer who simply radiated happiness and infectious joy. Fast forward a year and change and the Game of Thrones stalwart is about to topline a very different drama known as Voice From the Stone.
Pitched as a “Hitchcockian fairy tale,” USA Today has today unearthed the first trailer of Eric Howell’s ghostly period drama in action. Clarke is on board as Verena, a nurse who agrees to care for young, ailing boy called Jakob, who’s left devastated following the sudden death of his mother. As Voice From the Stone unfolds, though, Jakob’s erratic behavior is enough to send shivers down the spine, after he swears blind that his mother is communicating with him through the castle walls. »
