Just in case shapeshifting trans-dimensional evil spirits who take the form of a clown weren't enough to have you feeling panicked about the prospect of a movie date this September, Darren Aronofsky raises the challenge with a dark psychological thriller laden with torturous screams and violent imagery. In the full-length trailer for Mother!, the seemingly tranquil rural existence of Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem's characters is interrupted by the arrival of a stranger at their door, played by Ed Harris, followed soon thereafter by his sinister-acting wife, played by a formidable Michelle Pfeiffer. What ensues seems to be a total unravelling of reality. Think blood stains on the carpet and the lightbulbs, ominous tunnels in the basement, rapidly decaying walls and ceilings, and J-Law screaming all the way to a second Best Actress win, probs.

Considering we've only just about recovered from that scene in Black Swan where Natalie Portman's big toenail splits down the middle as she practices pirouetting in her room, we can only imagine what Mother! has in store. Watch the trailer below.
