Another slice of British horror storms into Frightfest with twisty-turny mystery Another Me making its UK bow on Saturday, August 29.

An adaptation of the bestselling Young Adult novel from Cathy MacPhail, this effort was actually shot back in 2013, but has taken its time getting into cinemas.

Quite why is anybody’s guess, especially when you consider the cast contains the likes of Rhys Ifans, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Claire Forlani.

Games Of Thrones star Sophie Turner takes the lead role, and here’s the synopsis:

British schoolgirl Fay’s father is dying, so getting the role of Lady Macbeth in the school play is a welcome diversion.

Then she becomes aware that someone is following her every move. Who could be so cruel as to taunt her at this sad time?

Soon evidence suggests she is being haunted by the dead twin she barely knew existed in a hard-hitting and affecting mystery dealing with apparitions, doppelgangers and mind games.

Shot in an around the Cardiff area (that’s my home town Penarth’s pier in the trailer), Catalan director Isabel Coixet is in the director’s chair, having brought us the likes of The Secret Life Of Words and Elegy in the past.

Here’s an effective trailer:
