We loved David Bruckner‘s arthouse horror The Night House, which has shades of Hellraiser, an interesting parallel considering the filmmaker is currently behind the camera on the next Hellraiser as I write this. In fact, The Night House was directly inspired by the Clive Barker-created franchise that has Hulu resurrecting Pinhead and the other Cenobites sometime next year.
In the film, “Reeling from the unexpected death of her husband, Beth (Rebecca Hall) is left alone in the lakeside home he built for her. Before long, disturbing visions of a presence in the house begin to beckon her with a ghostly allure. Yearning for answers, she begins digging into her husband’s belongings, only to discover strange and disturbing secrets.”
For those who missed out in theaters, The Night House is making its way to home video, available on digital October 5 and on Blu-ray and DVD October 19, Bloody Disgusting learned.
The release includes the extra feature “What Happens at the Lake House”, which takes a deep dive with director David Bruckner (V/H/S, Southbound, The Ritual) and the cast to unearth the secrets of The Night House. From the design of the mind-bending set to Rebecca Hall’s haunted performance, witness how this chilling mystery was brought to life.
“The Night House is a standout film… It’s moody and atmospheric, but above all, it’s scary as hell,” wrote Meagan Navarro in her review out of the Sundance premiere.
Ben Collins & Luke Piotrowski (Super Dark Times, Hellraiser, SiREN) wrote the script.
