Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke picked up another acting gig over the post seasonal break for HBO's award-winning medieval fantasy series, and it's a period-set shiver-fest.

In Voice From the Stone, Clarke plays a caregiver hired to help a child whose life has been stricken with tragedy. Set in a spectacular, spooky stone castle in Italy, the supernatural drama centers on spirits that soon manifest themselves from within the manor's cold structure.

Here's the official synopsis from Momentum Pictures:

Voice From the Stone is the haunting story of Verena (Clarke), a solemn nurse drawn to aid a young boy named Jakob (Edward Dring) who has fallen silent since the untimely death of his mother nearly a year ago. Living with his father (Marton Csokas) in a massive stone manor in Tuscany, Jakob not only refuses to speak -- he seems to be under the spell of a malevolent force trapped within the stone walls. As Verena's relationship with the father and son grow, she becomes ensnared and consumed by the severe force. If she is to save the boy, and free herself, she must face the phantom hidden inside the stone.

This certainly has an obvious air of Henry James' 1898 novella, The Turn of the Screw, which was made into the malevolently magnificent 1961 feature The Innocents and treads in the familiar trail of many atmospheric Hollywood ghost stories and historic tales of supernatural happenings.

Douse your lights and check out the eerie trailer and still gallery below. Voice From the Stone opens on April 28.
