Universal Pictures dropped a nice little surprise for film fans announcing that their new movie “You Should Have Left” will drop direct to VOD in a few weeks. The Blumhouse produced haunted house/psychological thriller is written and directed by David Koepp. What will undoubtedly catch most people’s eye is the film’s star, Kevin Bacon. The film reunites Bacon and Koepp who worked together on the 1999 supernatural horror flick “Stir of Echoes”.
Bacon and Amanda Seyfried play a couple who seek to repair their strained marriage by taking a vacation with their young daughter (Avery Essex). The older screenwriter and his much younger actress wife rent a beautiful country home in Wales and all seems well. But spookiness ensues and bacon’s character slowly begins to unravel, losing his grip on reality and unearthing what looks like some dark secrets in the process. Doesn’t sound especially fresh, but it looks fun and seeing Bacon is a definite plus.
“You Should Have Left” will be released On Demand June 19th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
