Jack's seemingly seamless life is ripped apart when he returns to his hometown in Jack Goes Home. Coming out in theaters and on VOD this October, the psychological horror film (written and directed by Thomas Dekker) is teased in a new poster and official trailer.

Synopsis: "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."

Written and directed by Thomas Dekker (Heroes, The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Jack Goes Home stars Rory Culkin (Scream 4, Intruders), Britt Robertson (Tomorrowland, Under the Dome), Lin Shaye (the Insidious series), Louis Hunter (The Fosters), Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black, American Pie), and Daveigh Chase (The Ring, Donnie Darko).

Momentum Pictures will release Jack Goes Home in select theaters and on VOD / Digital platforms on October 14th.
