Sci Fi Wire reports:

Actress Kristen Stewart (Panic Room) told SCI FI Wire that she has just finished a spooky horror movie directed by Hong Kong's Pang brothers, a very different take on Asian horror. Oxide and Danny Pang co-directed The Messengers, a movie about a family that gets haunted by a dark force when it move to a seemingly serene sunflower farm in North Dakota.

"I'm catatonically terrified most of the time," Stewart, 15, said in an interview to promote her upcoming SF family film Zathura: A Space Adventure. She screams a lot in Zathura, but she said that she screams a lot more in Messengers. "Yeah, there's a lot of screaming," she said. "I don't think that it's the typical Asian horror that we've seen."

The Messengers is a horror thriller from Columbia Pictures written by Mark Wheaton, Stuart Beattie and Todd Farmer and also stars Dylan McDermott, Penelope Ann Miller and John Corbett. It's planned for an August 2006 release. In the film, Stewart's character has some unusual psychic abilities, she said.

"The movie is about a family going through a rough time in their lives," Stewart said. "Financially, they are not stable, and there is animosity between the daughter and the parents for a few pretty good reasons. They move out to a farm, escape the hectic city life and enter a pretty spooky house. The only person who sees what's going on is my character, but because of her history, no one believes anything she says. It's a pretty claustrophobic movie set in the middle of nowhere, and you feel very closed in, and she's a very vulnerable character who is determined to get to the bottom of what's going on."

The Pang brothers, best known for their Hong Kong action and supernatural horror films, shot The Messenger in Saskatchewan, Canada.

"It's not like their previous movies, no," Stewart said. "And it's not like typical Asian horror films [adapted for an American audience]. It's through different eyes. In fact, when we were on the set at the end of the movie they gave us shirts that read 'Pang vision' instead of 'Panavision.'"
