Rebecca Hall looks to be giving a career-defining performance in upcoming horror flick The Night House, if the newly-released trailer is anything to go by.

In the two-minute teaser, we see Hall’s character Beth struggling to cope with the fallout following the suicide of her late husband, who wrote her a note and said that she would be “safe now” without him in the world.

What follows is an uncovering of deep and disturbing secrets that her significant other had been keeping from her.

She finds multiple files on a laptop with photographs of women that her husband appeared to have stalked, all of whom looked a lot like her but with some differing features.

This leads to Beth investigating further and discovering that her partner had been building an exact replica of their home - the titular ‘Night House’ - but back to front.

Of course, with every film like this will come twists and turns. We see characters questioning whether Beth is really experiencing these unbelievable goings-on, or if she’s simply suffering a traumatic struggle with her mental health following the death of her husband.

Directed by David Bruckner from a screenplay by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, The Night House also stars Sarah Goldberg, Evan Jonigkeit, Stacy Martin and Vondie Curtis-Hall.

Bruckner is renowned for his work within the horror world, having served as director of both 2017's The Ritual and 2015's Southbound, as well as lending his skills to sit in the director's chair for one of the pictures - Amateur Night - in the anthology movie, V/H/S.

A number of critics have given their support to the film following a premiere back in 2020. Currently sitting with a whopping score of 88% on reviews aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes, this certainly feels like a movie that could go down as one of the most modernised, impressive additions to the psychological thriller genre.

The Night House will come to cinemas later in 2021. We’ll bring you more news on a release date as and when we get it!
