The Ayres family invited Dr. Faraday (Domhnall Gleeson) into their home to care for one sick patient, but the health of everyone may be at risk from something supernatural in The Little Stranger, the new movie from Room director Lenny Abrahamson. With the film out now in theaters from Focus Features, we've been provided with an exclusive clip to share with Daily Dead readers.

Directed by Lenny Abrahamson and based on Sarah Waters' novel of the same name, The Little Stranger stars Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Josh Dylan, Will Poulter, and Charlotte Rampling.

Synopsis: "THE LITTLE STRANGER tells the story of Dr Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1948, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked. The Hall has been home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries. But it is now in decline and its inhabitants - mother, son and daughter - are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely, and how disturbingly, the family’s story is about to become entwined with his own."
