Since its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival back on January 24, 2020, the psychological horror film The Night House (2020) has been accumulating a good collection of positive opinions. Now that the movie will see the light to the open public this summer it is time to get ready for this little trip that is anticipated to be an intense one.
The Night House (2020) centers on a widow who begins to uncover her recently deceased husband’s disturbing secrets. Reeling from the unexpected death of her husband, Beth is left alone in the lakeside home he built for her. She tries as best she can to keep together—but then the dreams come. Disturbing visions of a presence in the house call to her, beckoning with a ghostly allure, but the harsh light of day washes away any proof of a haunting. Against the advice of her friends, she begins digging into his belongings, yearning for answers. What she finds are secrets both strange and terrible and a mystery she’s determined to resolve.
This is the new movie directed by awards-winner David Bruckner, responsible for the creepy and intense films The Signal (2007) and The Ritual (2017), and the segments “Amateur Night” in V/H/S (2012) and “The Accident” in Southbound (2015). Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, the writers of Super Dark Times (2017) and Stephanie (2017), have been in charge of the screenplay.
The main star in The Night House (2020) is Rebecca Hall, an always interesting actress who has been present in titles like The Prestige (2006), Dorian Gray (2009), The Town (2010), The Awakening (2011), Closed Circuit (2013), Transcendence (2014), The Gift (2015), and the recent Godzilla vs. Kong (2021). With her, Stacy Martin, Sarah Goldberg, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Evan Jonigkeit, Allie McCulloch, and Samantha Buck also star.
The Night House (2020) is Rated R for some violent/disturbing images, and language including some sexual references. The movie is coming out on July 15 in Germany and Canada, and other territories like the USA, UK, Australia, Netherlands, Portugal, Ireland, and Spain will have to wait until August 20, 2021.
Here you can watch the official trailer for The Night House (2020). But careful, most of the surprise plot twists are spoiled here. I know, I hate it when they do this.
