Verena is a young nurse hired to help a mute young heir within an isolated castle in Tuscany. The more she observes the boy, the more Verena becomes convinced he has fallen under the spell of a powerful and otherworldly persona trapped in the castle's stone walls, one that seems to be quickly approaching on her.
Although the film is adapted from the novel of the same name by Silvio Raffo, the film is considered to be a loose supernatural remake of the 1970s psychological thriller, What the Peeper Saw (1972) which starred Britt Ekland as a young woman whom becomes concerned for her 12 year old stepson, (played by Mark Lester) whose mother passed away and develops abnormal behavior. Voices from The Stone (2017) was released 45 years after What The Peeper Saw (1972). See more »
When Verena cries demanding to the voice on the wall for answers, she breaks part of the wall and we can see how the pieces fall to the ground. Within a few minutes of that scene, Jakob is lying on the floor leaning against the wall and the floor is completely clean. See more »

Your father told me you have her gift. What would she say if she knew you might never use it again? She must have... spoken about the future before she died... about the wonderful things that lie ahead for you. Try to remember what she said. And imagine what she might say now if she could see you.

A thriller with Emilia Clarke? Sounds good to me. But after ninety minutes there was only deception left. There is no way you could qualify this movie as a thriller so I wonder why IMDb puts it in this category. It's a Gothic drama, and a boring one. It's all nicely shot and the acting isn't that bad but the story is oh so boring. You constantly hope something interesting will happen but let me spoil it for you, nothing significant to make the story better happens. Emilia Clarke is a delight to watch in Game Of Thrones but in this movie she can do whatever she wants, if the story is bad you can put whatever actor in it, it still is a bad movie. I thought about stop watching this movie after an hour but I sat it through in the hope something would change but unfortunately it didn't. Boring drama.
