Decker's movie puts a fictional spin on the life of author Shirley Jackson.


Author Shirley Jackson is best known to horror fans for her novel 'The Haunting of Hill House', adapted for the big screen by Robert Wise as 1963's classic The Haunting, a not so classic 1999 remake, and more recently as a Netflix series.

With Shirley, director Josephine Decker, who recently impressed us with Madeline's Madeline, puts Jackson (Elizabeth Moss) into a nightmarish, fictional scenario when she and her husband (Michael Stuhlbarg) play host to a young couple (Odessa Young and Logan Lerman).

Shirley is on US VOD June 5th. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer, poster and official synopsis below.

The official synopsis reads:

Renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece when the arrival of newlyweds upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband. The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naΓ―ve young couple at their door.
