The Night House

The Night House ★★★★½

First off the script is masterful. Written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski and directed with a sure hand by David Bruckner. Rebecca Hall is absolutely stunning as Beth. She's grieving, she's almost catatonic. Instead of peace in her beautiful lake house her mind is reeling. She's having a hard time distinguishing what's real or not. Everything around her keeps getting more mysterious, dangerous, more confusing. Beth is going down a tense and terrifying rabbithole. I didn't notice I had my fist clenched through the movie until it started to hurt. That's how tight the suspense is in this movie. One of the best of the year.
