‘The Beach House’ Debuts On Shudder, Offers New Trailer

Summer is upon us once again–even if Summer 2020 is disturbingly different from other sun-filled seasons–and with it comes a new horror movie with a hot-weather theme, The Beach House.

The film–the directorial debut of Jeffrey A. Brown, who also wrote the original screenplay–will start streaming on Shudder July 9, as reported by collider.com.

The movie’s frightening trailer (check it out below) sets the stage for the horrors to come when two college sweethearts visit a family beach house for a well-deserved vacation.

Emily (Liana Liberato) and Randall (Noah Le Gros) are looking for a comfortable place to reconnect, but they find an older couple–Jane (Maryann Nagel) and Mitch Turner (Jake Weber)–already living in the house. That’s when the vacation starts to go south in a hurry.

The movie–which opened the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival last year–is described as being Lovecraftian in its approach. The official synopsis teases the storyline by saying that “unexpected bonds form as the couples let loose and enjoy the isolation, but it all takes an ominous turn as increasingly strange environmental phenomena begin to warp their peaceful evening.”

Things quickly become more and more bizarre “as the effects of an infection become evident (and) Emily struggles to make sense of the contagion before it’s too late.”
