'The Girl' Teaser: First Glimpse At Alfred Hitchcock Obsession Movie (WATCH)

The first glimpse of the movie about legendary director Alfred Hitchcock's obsessive relationship with actress and muse, Tippi Hedren, has hit the internet, and it's a chilling one. The 30-second trailer teaser for "The Girl" hints at the downward spiral Hitchcock's interactions with his "The Birds" and "Marnie" star took, including repeated incidents of harassment and stalking.

The director "ruined my career, but he didn't ruin my life," Hedren told the Television Critics Association in early August.

Sienna Miller stars as the young Tippi Hedren; character actor Toby Jones ("The Hunger Games," "My Week with Marilyn") makes a dramatic turn as the British master of horror. The movie, directed by Julian Jarrold ("Becoming Jane"), premieres on HBO on October 20.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this post incorrectly stated that Tippi Hedren starred in a film called "Marine" instead of "Marnie."
