Paramount Pictures has dropped an intriguing clip from Darren Aronofsky’s next film, the psychological thriller mother!.

All that’s really known about the film’s narrative is that it follows a couple whose relationship is in for a major test when uninvited guests arrive. The trailers have thus far solidified that Jennifer Lawrence’s character, known only as ‘Mother’, is mentally on the fritz, but the question remains whether that’s all in her head or if there really is something malevolent going on with these individuals. If they are up to no good, what the hell are they up to?

While there are many questions surrounding the picture, on thing’s for sure: there’s one hell of a cast, and it looks like they’ll be putting in some very good work. The clip below shows off a bit of Michelle Pfeiffer’s creepy turn, credited only as ‘Woman’, seen here pushing our lead to have children.

We’re pretty pumped to find out just what we’re in for with the latest from the man behind Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, Black Swan and The Wrestler. Not long now: mother!, also starring Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, Domhnall Gleeson, Brendan Gleeson and Kristen Wiig, will arrive Down Under on September 14 and opens in the U.S. on September 15.

A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. From filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream), mother! stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Dd Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer in this riveting psychological thriller about love, devotion and sacrifice.
