Trailer for the Supernatural Thriller THE MONK with Vincent Cassel

Check out this great trailer for a cool looking supernatural period thriller called The Monk, which stars Vincent Cassel (Black Swan). The movie is based on the 1796 Matthew G. Lewis gothic novel, and here's the synopsis:

Abandoned at birth at the gates of a Capuchin monastery in Madrid, Brother Ambrosio (Cassel), raised by the friars, grows up into a preacher admired far and wide for his fervor.  Ambrosio is feared for his righteousness and believes he is immune from temptation - until the arrival of a mysterious apprentice undermines his convictions and leads him down a dangerous path of sin, corruption and murder.

The movie will be released on VOD and get a limited theatrical release on March 8th, 2013. It looks like a solid film, and I'm looking forward to checking it out. What about you?
