The premium genre streaming channel have also released the film’s first official Trailer. Discovery Of Witches star Teresa Palmer stars as Rachael, a mother who lost one of her twin sons in a tragic accident. Struggling to cope with the loss and now her family have relocated. It’s then things get a bit strange when her other son (Tristan Ruggeri who plays both twins), starts to act strangely.
Anyone who has coped with grief recently (I have), you are an very vulnerable place and are opened to influence. The trailer does show Rachael unravelling and suggests something ‘spiritual’ or worse might have some nefarious ways. Some unsettling stuff going on here too…
