While the warmer months usually herald a welcome respite from wintertime's gloominess with lifted spirits, sunny days, and plenty of blockbuster flicks, the gothic horror film My Cousin Rachel is giving us a different reason to look forward to summertime with its June 9 release date.

The dark romance film, which is a retelling of the 1951 Daphne Du Maurier novel of the same name, promises plenty of bewitching twists, psychological games, and madness in the new Crimson Peak-esque trailer, which was released by Fox Searchlight.

Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin star in the moody thriller, which follows the story of a young man named Philip who believes his beautiful and enigmatic cousin Rachel had something to do with the mysterious death of her husband, who was Philip's guardian.

Setting out to enact revenge against Rachel, the young Englishman soon finds himself becoming deranged with strange hallucinations and psychosis as he becomes ensnared by her charms and a mysterious tea that she brews for him.

With the star power of veteran Weisz and Claflin, whom we know and love from the Hunger Games and Me Before You, coupled with the promise of plenty of dark intrigue and obsession, this is a can't-miss guilty pleasure.
