Amanda Seyfried's New Thriller From 'Invisible Man' Creator Looks Terrifying

Amanda Seyfried's New Thriller From 'Invisible Man' Creator Looks Terrifying

Horror heads who loved The Invisible Man may want to turn their attention to a new psychological thriller from the same makers, Blumhouse Productions.

Written and directed by legendary screenwriter David Koepp (who has worked on Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible and Panic Room) You Should Have Left stars Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried.

You can watch the full trailer here:

In a bid to reconnect with one another, Theo and Susanna book a vacation at a beautiful and remote modern home deep in the Welsh countryside for themselves and their six-year-old daughter, Ella (Avery Essex).

Based on the novel by famed German writer Daniel Kehlmann, the movie is described as a "terrifying, mind-twisting tale" of jealousy, domestic abuse and the shadow left by the past.

As you might have guessed, the house - which is really the fourth character in the narrative - turns out to harbour something rather more sinister.

The synopsis reads: "What at first seems like a perfect retreat 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."

In due course, a peaceful holiday in the middle of nowhere sees "a father fighting desperately to save his family from a beautiful home that refuses to let them leave."

You Should Have Left is produced by terror extraordinaire Jason Blum (The Purge, Halloween), Kevin Bacon and Dean O'Toole (Walk Like a Panther).

Meanwhile, Jeanette Volturno, Couper Samuelson and Derek Ambrosi serve as executive producers.

Blumhouse Production has some pretty major credentials under its belt, having released Fantasy Island, The Invisible Man, and The Hunt earlier in 2020.

You Should Have Left is available to rent on iTunes, Vudu, Google Play, Apple TV, and more.
