I must admit to not exactly being sold on this new chiller from director Jim Sheridan starring Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz. The first, lengthy trailer was too long with not very much happening by way of actually scaring me. However, I am allowed to change my mind, and two brand new TV spots have just arrived which have, indeed, changed my mind for the better.
Maybe its the fact the trailers are much shorter and allow the scares to really shine, but everything about this horror now actually looks extremly promising. Check out the TV spots for yourself after the following synopsis, and you can expect to see the film in UK cinemas from sometime in October.
Some say that all houses have memories. For one man, his home is the place he would kill to forget. A family unknowingly moves into a home where several grisly murders were committed…only to find themselves the killer’s next target. Successful publisher Will Atenton (Craig) quit a job in New York City to relocate his wife, Libby (Weisz), and two girls to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her children. And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived. When Will investigates the tragedy, his only lead comes from Ann Paterson (Watts), a neighbor who was close to the family that died. As Will and Ann piece together the disturbing puzzle, they discover that the story of the last man to leave Will’s dream house will be just as horrifying to the one who came next.
