The horror film "Mother!" has once again brought a dark narrative to theaters ahead of fall and lead actress Jennifer Lawrence says the storyline is all based on filmmaker Darren Aronofsky's illustration of the Bible.

The Oscar winner told NBC's Savannah Guthrie on the "Today Show" that she believes Aronofsky, her boyfriend and director of the movie, has created a "masterpiece."

"Before the movie was called 'Mother!' it was called 'Day 6.' If you know the Bible you know God created the world in six days. So to me, the beginning and the end — which we have not reached yet — the end of the universe," Lawrence said. "So in that, there's the creation of man, there's the creation of religion."

Director Darren Aronofsky attends the U.S. premiere of "Noah" in New York March 26, 2014.

Alongside Lawrence, the film also stars Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer. The plot follows "a young woman whose tranquil life with her husband at their country home is disrupted by the arrival of a mysterious couple."

Despite the trailer's cryptic preview of the film, the 27-year-old movie star revealed that the house and her character are one organism.

"I say the house is Earth, the house has a heart beat," Lawrence said.

Lawrence called the film an "assault" claiming it's much darker than any of the film's Aronofsky has made in the past ("Noah," "Black Swan," "Requiem for a Dream"). "No one should feel what you see in the film," she added.
