New trailer for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones adds more horror

The biggest issue most genre fans have with films based on Young Adult novels is that, while the books themselves may have some decent horror injected into them, the film adaptations typically tone down the elements that horror fans may expect to see. The latest trailer for THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES seems to steer clear of most YA-based adaptations of the past, injecting what appears to be a darker take on the source material as it looks to deliver some much needed horror sensability into the YA-world. You can check out the latest trailer for this flick below and judge for yourself whether or not it'll be worth taking a shot on.

When her mom is attacked and taken from their home in New York City by a demon, a seemingly ordinary teenage girl, Clary Fray, finds out truths about her past and bloodline on her quest to get her back, that changes her entire life.

THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES is directed by Harald Zwart and stars Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Lena Headey, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Aidan Turner, Robert Sheehan, Kevin Durand and Jared Harris. It is set to be released in theaters on August 23, 2013.
