A trailer for the psychological and possibly supernatural thriller/horror Jack Goes Home has been released and it is pretty damn effective! Seeing Lin Shaye in such a sinister role after the pleasantly charming Elise from the Insidious films is refreshing and, honestly, kinda startling.
Jack Thurlowe (Rory Culkin) is a successful magazine editor with a beautiful fiancée Cleo (Britt Robertson) who is seven months pregnant with their first child. However, this perfect life is turned upside down when Jack discovers that his parents have suffered a brutal car accident back in his hometown. His beloved father has perished while his mother Teresa (Lin Shaye) has survived. Upon returning home for the funeral, the volatile nature of Jack and Teresa’s relationship boils to the surface and the constant barrage of sympathy from the town starts to weigh on Jack’s grieving process.
With the arrival of a mysterious new neighbor, Duncan (Louis Hunter), Jack finds audio recordings and video tapes left behind by his father that lead him to question childhood memories and the very foundation of his identity. With pressure mounting and sanity crumbling, Jack comes to learn that the idyllic world he has believed in since infancy is in fact a nightmare playground full of lies, deception, violence and murder.
Rory Culkin (Scream 4, Intruders), Britt Robertson (Tomorrowland, Under the Dome), Lin Shaye (Insidious), Louis Hunter (The Fosters), Natasha Lyonne (“Orange is the New Black”, American Pie), and Daveigh Chase (The Ring, Donnie Darko) all star in the film directed by Thomas Dekker.
Jack Goes Home comes out in select theaters and On Demand/Digital platforms October 14th.
