Reeling from the unexpected death of her husband, Beth (Rebecca Hall) is left alone in the lakeside home he built for her. She tries as best she can to keep it together – but then nightmares come.
Disturbing visions of a presence in the house calling to her, beckoning her with a ghostly allure.
Against the advice of her friends, she begins digging into her husband’s belongings, yearning for answers.
What she finds are secrets both strange and disturbing – a mystery she’s determined to unravel.I'm rather concerned that the trailer gives away a massive twist in the tale... and yet it's that twist that seemingly elevates The Night House above 'just another ghost story' and makes me really want to watch it.
Due out in the States on July 16, The Night House is the latest horror flick from David Brucker, director of Southbound and The Ritual, and the forthcoming Hellraiser revival.
