The US rights to supernatural thriller Our House, Anthony Scott Burns‘ debut feature film, were snapped up in February by IFC Midnight, with plans to release on July 27th. That date is seeming a lot closer now, as IFC Midnight have just released a new poster and trailer for the movie.
Our House looks like it’s using a classic haunting tale but with technological twist. Starring Thomas Mann (Kong: Skull Island) and Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), the film’s hefty synopsis reads:
“A machine that can bring back dead loved ones seems like a great idea…until you unleash the wrong spirits. When his parents are killed in a car accident, science wiz Ethan (Thomas Mann) must leave behind college and his girlfriend (Nicola Peltz) to care for his younger brother and sister. By day, he juggles the responsibilities of raising two kids; by night, he tinkers in the garage on an invention he hopes will change the world: a machine that can generate wireless electricity. He gets more than he bargained for, however, when the device awakens the dead souls that haunt the house. As Ethan and his siblings attempt to make contact with their parents, a horrifying realization sets in: not all the spirits in their midst may be friendly. This hair-raising science-fiction ghost story is a nightmare journey into a past that refuses to stay dead and buried.”
Written by Nathan Parker (Moon), the suspense thriller will be produced by Lee Kim, Martin Katz, Ulf Israel and Karen Wookey. John Davis, Nick Spicer, Kyle Franke, Derek Dauchy, Noah Segal, Adrian Love, David Kehrl and Reik Moller will executive produce.
Our House will first be shown on July 22nd at its world premier at Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival. The film will come out in select cinemas, as well as VOD and digital platforms on July 27th, but in the meantime, check out the new trailer below.
