Trailer Watch: Kelly Reilly is a Paranormal Vixen in the Cheesiest Looking YA Thriller Ever

Am I the only one who thought that after her performance in Flight, Kelly Reilly would slowly become a household name? Anyone? Guess not. Especially not after catching an episode of her TV show, Black Box, which was so aggressively unwatchable that I almost shed a tear. And it looks like the actress is continuing on a slippery slope in the trailer for INNOCENCE, an upcoming thriller based on the YA bestselling novel of the same name by Jane Mendelsohn. The film, in theaters September 5th, stars Reilly as paranormal vixen of sorts who sets her sights on a school of teens that reek of virgin blood.

Already I'm like, Kelly Reilly, WHY? And this poster, though? I can't even.

Anyway, Sophie Curtis (daughter of women's designer Jill Stuart) is the main teen victim in the movie, and Linus Roache (most known for his work on Law & Order) plays her dad. Sarita Choudhury (Homeland, Mississippi Masala) is also featured in the film. Here's a little more info from the synopsis:

Haunted by the death and dreams of her beloved mother in a Montauk surfing accident, 16 year old Beckett (Sophie Curtis) and her father, novelist Miles Warner (Linus Roache), move to Manhattan and attempt to piece together their shattered life. Now enrolled at the exclusive Hamilton preparatory school, her psychosis and hallucinations intensify with the dubious suicides of current and past students as does her first love for Tobey Crawford (Graham Phillips). The discovery that her new school may be run by a coven of beautiful and seductive women who perpetuate their youth by drinking the blood of virgins becomes the ultimate challenge of Beckett and Tobey's young lives. INNOCENCE is a chilling allegory of the precarious state of an American teenager, explores themes of loss, the human condition and a society torn between purity and narcissism.

I know, super generic. I can only hope it's better than it looks. But big screen YA fiction is hot right now, so this could already have a built-in audience. Watch the trailer:
