New poster for the reimagining of the Lizzie Borden story.

Director Craig William Macneill's Lizzie reimagines the story of Lizzie Borden, who the story goes, took an axe to her parents in 1892.

Chloë Sevigny is the titular murderess, with Kristen Stewart playing the role of a maid she embarks on a torrid romance with.

The film's official poster has been released, and plays heavily on Lizzie's particular choice of murder weapon. Check it out below.

Lizzie is in UK cinemas November 16th.

The official synopsis reads:

Academy Award® nominee Chloë Sevigny (Boys Don't Cry, "Big Love") stars as Lizzie Borden, the notorious woman at the heart of one of the most enduring mysteries in American history. After a lifetime of loneliness, Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in housemaid Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart) and their secret intimacy sparks an unthinkable act. Director Craig William Macneill (The Boy (2015), "Channel Zero: Candle Cove") explores the days leading up to the savage crimes in a dark tale of repression, exploitation and thwarted dreams.
