Gone Girl fans, get ready to be creeped out again, possibly even more.

The first, international trailer for Dark Places, starring Charlize Theron, was released this week (watch it above—warning: Contains expletives). The film is based on the novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl, the most creeptastic thriller of 2014, which garnered an Oscar nomination for lead actress Rosamund Pike.

In Dark Places, Theron, who won an Oscar for Monster, plays Libby, a survivor and sole witness of a Kansas massacre that claimed the lives of her mother and sisters and took place when she was an 8-year-old child. A Satanic cult was believed to be behind the murders. Her brother, Ben, then a teenager, was one of the suspects and she testified against him, helping to lead to his conviction.

About 25 years later, she agrees to help a secret society of amateur investigators, dubbed The Kill Club, who are trying to find out what actually happened...in exchange for money. The re-opened cold case stirs doubts within her and, like in Gone Girl, viewers can expect plenty of twists as the mystery unfolds.
