|Just out of the oven we show you the new official film for The Night House, the title directed by David Bruckner The Rituali ih that will hit theaters on August 20. While trying to cope with the unexpected death of her husband, Beth (Rebecca Hall) is left alone in a house near a lake specially designed for her. Although she tries her best not to lose her sanity, her dreams do not take long to appear. The disturbing visions of a presence calling for her in her home become more and more frequent.|
The Night House starring Rebecca Hall, is a suspenseful puzzle that keeps the viewer with expectations of what will happen next. This production also has the notable participation of Vondie Curtis Hall (Die hard 2, Eve’s bayou) and Evan Jonigkeit (X Man, Dark Phoenix) with whom Infobae spoke about the exciting story they interpret.
“Night House” was presented as part of the Sundance Film Festival that took place on January 14, 2020. The production house Searchlight Pictures was willing to pay an exorbitant sum, about $ 12 million, on the rights of tape distribution.
The ingredients that make “Night House” a supernatural horror movie are the suicide of a husband, a woman facing multiple duels, and a paranormal spirit. In addition, it has a very well handled sound design. If we add all this, plus the excellent performances, we have a story that will keep us glued to the saddle.
The story follows Beth (Rebeca Hall), an elementary school teacher, who tries to rebuild her life after the death of Owen (Evan Jonigkeit), her architect husband, who committed suicide in the house they lived in Upstate New York. The young woman is left alone in that house on the lake that he built for her. However, several disturbing events that interrupt her calm begin to scare her: strange dreams that come true and the discovery of the presence of a ghost in her house.
Beth has visions about a presence in the house that attracts her. Her friends advise her to flee from that place, but she does not listen to them and begins to look for answers among the belongings of her husband and what was her marriage. Evan Jonigkeit confessed to us: “What most attracted me to the role is that it is a presence that you cannot see but you can feel throughout the whole plot.” Finally strange secrets are revealed that she must solve, a mystery that she is determined to unravel.
“I wanted not to be able to convey if my character was innocent or guilty, that was my main challenge,” admits Vondie Curtis Hall about the role of “Mel” with whom we talk about the beliefs and legends that we also see in this story.
According to some commentators who participated in the Sundance Film Festival, “Rebecca Hall’s performance adds an enigmatic touch.” It is difficult for Beth (her character) to cope with two events that start separately and, in the end, become a perpendicular affair.
Playing a character who experiences a paranormal experience requires responsibility and, as shown in the film, the performance manages to convince of the imminent danger that she is witnessing. The script manages to involve the viewer in the situation and, finally, convinces that the story can pass through to reality.
There is a trait that can be appreciated in Rebecca Hall’s performance: she manages to convey the fears that Beth is living.
Critics consider that there are enough key points of this production selected by Searchlight of the Sundance Midnight festival, that it becomes a film of interest to fans of sophisticated horror. However, some have come to consider that it has some similarities in plot to “The Invisible Man.” But it has a less terrifying feature: its storytelling is sharper, and the atmosphere is a bit more dilutive.
The release schedule, at least in the United States, has been advanced by media such as Deadline, and it is appreciated that they once again trust the premiere in cinemas, although we will still have to wait a few months.
The Night House. It was one of the films that caused more than a shock in its presentation at the last Sundance Festival. After the unexpected death of her husband, a widow (Rebecca Hall) begins to experience strange phenomena during the night at her lakeside house, as she uncovers disturbing secrets about her late husband. It was directed by David Bruckner (The Ritual) with a budget of just $ 12 million. Scheduled premiere: July 16.
The Eyes of Tammy Faye. It is based on the true story of one of the most megalomaniacal, extravagant, influential and controversial telepreachers, the Reverend Jim Bakker, imprisoned for fraud in the late 80s and dragging a multitude of sex scandals. A whole show in which reality surpassed fiction and that makes for a movie, a series and more. Bakker is played by Andrew Garfield and his former wife, the Tammy Faye of the title, Jessica Chastain. So great cast for the film directed by fellow actor and screenwriter Michael Showalter (The great love disease). Promise, promise. Scheduled premiere: September 24.
Antlers: Dark creatures. In a small town in Oregon, a teacher (Keri Russell) and her brother the Sheriff (Jesse Plemons) become interested in the case of an enigmatic boy who may have a special connection to a horrible ancient creature and the deaths that are taking place in the village. With the backing of Guillermo del Toro in the production is the new film by Scott Cooper (who with Rebellious Heart managed to win Jeff Bridges the Oscar for best actor. He also directed Black Mass. Strictly criminal with Johnny Depp). Scheduled premiere: October 29.
Nightmare Alley. The next of Guillermo del Toro as a director, also a co-writer adapting the novel by William Lindsay Gresham, tells the story of a trickster who makes a living with his supposed divinatory skills. Mixing drama, psychological thriller and fantastic elements, it has a cast that includes Bradley Cooper, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Willem Dafoe, Mary Steenburgen or Ron Perlman. Scheduled premiere: December 3.
It’s already that time of year, festivals are already starting and critics already have their nomination as the scariest movie of 2020. The Night House, which made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival, is being called “the story of scariest ghosts of recent years ”.
This is the new film by David Bruckner, director of The Ritual (the film about the group of friends who decide to take a trip to the forest after the death of one of them, there they face hallucinations, ghosts, dark rituals and a sinister presence that does not stop haunting them), starring Rebecca Hall (Vicky Christina Barcelona and The Gift), who supposedly gives an “imposing” and “incredible” performance, Stacy Martin and Sarah Goldberg, which premiered in the Midnight Section of the festival, which is generally reserved for horror stories and thrillers.
After the premiere, the critics weren’t talking about anything else and everyone seems to agree that this movie is the most disturbing thing we’re going to see this year. The Night House tells the story of a woman who is haunted and haunted by the ghost of her dead husband, in the house he built for her years ago (why didn’t he move in? We don’t know that)
IndieWire says the film “breaks the rules of jump scares,” which “come without warning” and are so loud that “a sequence screams into action with a sustained jolt that appears to last 15 seconds.”
Others say the movie makes you feel like you’re not safe and leaves you wrecked by the end. Robert Saucedo, one of the guests who was able to see the film at its premiere, wrote on Twitter “THE NIGHT HOUSE-Rebecca Hall is incredible in this horror film about a widow who is haunted by the ghost of her husband. There’s a great mythology that gets a bit confusing in the third act, but for the most part the movie is scary. ”
Others say that even if it had been hours since they had seen the film, they were still shaking and reliving the images in their mind, and everyone seems captivated by Hall’s performance, which is undoubtedly the one that produces that feeling of despair that marks the opinions that they have been able to give so far.
The scares come quickly and do not stop, the atmosphere completely envelops you and leaves everything marked by that feeling of terror that remains in the back of your head after watching a good horror movie, which makes your “mistakes” be forgivable.
There is no release date yet, but The Night House has already been acquired by Searchlight Pictures for $ 12 million, so we will surely see it in theaters soon. Watch for the first trailer outside of Sundance to confirm what critics are saying at the moment.
Of course, the opinion of some critics is not a guarantee, but Sundance is, films like Hereditary, The Woman, Lords of Chaos, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and other horror gems have premiered at the Sundance festival.
