Amanda Seyfried takes on a haunted house story in Things Heard & Seen.
Based on the novel by Elizabeth Brundage, the Netflix movie follows a Manhattan couple who move to a historic hamlet in the Hudson Valley. They then come to discover that their marriage has a sinister darkness, one that rivals their new home’s history.
Check out the trailer below:
The trailer paints a pretty ominous picture, from the obvious relationship struggles to the classic unplugged-radio-keeps-playing bit. And of course, a very pointed statement shrouded in mystery: “My wife doesn’t know what happened here. I think it would be better if we kept it that way.”
Here’s the full synopsis of Things Heard & Seen from Netflix:
Catherine Clare (Academy Award®-nominee Amanda Seyfried) reluctantly trades life in 1980s Manhattan for a remote home in the tiny hamlet of Chosen, New York, after her husband George (James Norton) lands a job teaching art history at a small Hudson Valley college. Even as she does her best to transform the old dairy farm into a place where young daughter Franny will be happy, Catherine increasingly finds herself isolated and alone. She soon comes to sense a sinister darkness lurking both in the walls of the ramshackle property—and in her marriage to George.
THINGS HEARD & SEEN is written and directed by Academy Award®-nominated filmmakers Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman (American Splendor). Also starring Natalia Dyer (Stranger Things), Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul), Karen Allen (Raiders of the Lost Ark) and Academy Award®-winner F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus).
