Kevin Bacon returns to his horror roots by reteaming with his STIR OF ECHOS writer-director, David Koepp with the new film, YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT. I can’t my finger on it, but something about this movie seems familiar. It’s official synpsis reads:
In a new psychological thriller from Blumhouse Productions and legendary screenwriter David Koepp Kevin Bacon (who is 61) and Amanda Seyfried (who is 34. Hollywood- get your shit together) star as a couple seeking a restful vacation on an isolated edge of the world only to discover that secrets demand a reckoning … and travel with you.
In this terrifying, mind-twisting tale, a father fights desperately to save his family from a beautiful home that refuses to let them leave.
Theo Conroy (Bacon) is a successful middle-aged man whose marriage to his much younger actress wife, Susanna (Seyfried) is shredding at the seams, frayed by her secretiveness, his jealousy, and the shadow of his past.
In an effort to repair their relationship, Theo and Susanna book a vacation at a stunning (must be nice), remote modern home in the Welsh countryside for themselves and their six-year-old daughter, Ella (Avery Essex). What at first seems like a perfect retreat (I genuinely hate this fucking family already) distorts into a perfect nightmare when Theo’s grasp on reality begins to unravel and he suspects that a sinister force within the house knows more than he or Susanna have revealed, even to each other. (LOL)
Based on the novel by best-selling German literary sensation Daniel Kehlmann (Measuring the World), You Should Have Left is written and directed by David Koepp (Stir of Echoes). The film is produced by grandmaster of terror Jason Blum, Kevin Bacon and Dean O’Toole (Walk Like a Panther), and is executive produced by Jeanette Volturno, Couper Samuelson and Derek Ambrosi.
WHAT LIES BENEATH YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT will be released on Demand just in time for Father’s Day on June 19th.
