We're just a few months away from the release of Beautiful Creatures, the spooky supernatural romance based on the bestselling young adult novel. If you're still not sure if it's on your must-watch list, our exclusive interviews with the writer/director and one of the flick's stars just might change your mind.

We caught up with Richard LaGravenese, who directed the movie and adapted the book, to get him to explain just what the supernatural forces in this dark tale are, and how they affect the main characters. According to him, this is more than just a "witch" story.

We also had a chat with co-star Alden Ehrenreich, who explains the relationship his character, Ethan Wate, has with the magical Duchannes family at the center of the story. Ethan's just a bored boy in a boring town until he meets the enchanting Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert), but he's in for much more than a simple love story.

Check out the full interviews below, interspersed with some teaser footage from the film (including what looks like another great performance from co-star Emma Thompson).
