The Night House

The Night House ★★★

Between this and Caveat, 2021 was a great year for ninety-some minute exercises in anxiety that might not hold up to a whole lot of plot scrutiny at the end of it all- but also don’t really need to cuz a good moody scare goes a long way. It helps, of course, to have an incredible performance like Hall’s at the center of it all, making it impossible to look away, even when your scaredy-cat brain wants you to.
