Arriving in theaters tomorrow is David Bruckner’s The Night House, courtesy of Searchlight Pictures. The film has had a long journey to the big screen after premiering at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival (you can read my review of the film HERE). Starring Rebecca Hall (who recently appeared in Godzilla vs. Kong), The Night House follows a widow named Beth struggling to put the pieces of her life together after her husband kills himself, and she begins to suspect that he’s reaching out to her from the beyond after a string of mysterious occurrences happening, signaling his presence. But as Beth starts to dig deeper into her husband’s life, she begins to uncover his many secrets, which culminate in some horrifying revelations about the man she shared her life with.

During the recent press day for The Night House, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with Hall about her involvement in the project and she discussed how excited she was to have the opportunity to play such a unique character in this film, who runs towards danger as opposed to running away from it. Hall also chatted about her experiences collaborating with David Bruckner and their approach to the extreme nature of her character Beth, as well as their mutually shared trust in each other that allowed them to take The Night House’s story to some unexpected places, and more.

Check out our video interview with Hall below and be sure to catch The Night House in theaters this weekend!
