Reeling from the unexpected death of her husband, Beth (Rebecca Hall) isolates herself in the lakeside home that he built for her. As grief and sorrow overwhelm her sense, she begins to uncover a series of lies and secrets that he kept. Wanting nothing more than to endure the emotional storm, Beth finds herself consumed with her husband’s dark past.
One of the biggest films to come out of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, David Bruckner’s The Night House appears to be every bit as frightening as advertised. Ahead of its forthcoming theatrical debut, Searchlight Pictures has just released a new trailer, and it will have your spine-tingling.
A hushed sounding voiceover more than sets the tone as we watch Hall navigate her way around the property. Flashes of unusual events keep your attention centered, even though you aren’t sure what you’re seeing. Though I can’t quite place the sub-genre of horror on display, I can say one thing - my interest in this film is high.
Starring Rebecca Hall, Sarah Goldberg, Vondie Curtis Hall, Evan Jonigkeit, and Stacy Martin, The Night House hits theaters on August 20.
