For more than a year we’ve known pretty much bupkis about Darren Aronofsky’s latest feature Mother!, beyond the fact that it was “indie,” and that Jennifer Lawrence was attached to star. Now, The Wrap has been tipped off about the tone of the new film, revealing that the Black Swan director is dipping back into the world of psychological horror.

The brief synopsis for the movie only says, “A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.” But sources close to the movie—out this October, in a spookily appropriate bit of scheduling—say it’ll be similar in feel to Swan, the film that won Natalie Portman a Best Actress award at the 2011 Oscars. Meanwhile, the movie’s also sporting a pretty amazing cast list by now, with Javier Bardem co-starring opposite Lawrence, and Michelle Pfeiffer, Domnhall Gleeson, Ed Harris and Kristen Wiig in supporting roles.
