A newfound friendship between two families is put to the test in the trailer for Speak No Evil, a new horror film from director Christian Tafdrup.
In the film: “On a vacation in Tuscany, two families — one Danish, one Dutch — meet and become fast friends. Months later, the free-spirited Dutch family extends an invitation to the more conservative Danish one for a holiday weekend getaway at their countryside home. However, it doesn’t take long before things gradually get out of hand as the joy of reunion is replaced with misunderstandings.
“The Dutch hospitality quickly turns unnerving for the Danes, and they find themselves increasingly caught in a web of their own politeness in the face of eccentric… or is it sinister… behaviour.”
In addition to directing, Christian Tafdrup co-wrote Speak No Evil’s script with Mads Tafdrup. The film’s cast includes Morten Burian, Sidsel Siem Koch, Fedja Van Huêt, Karina Smulders, Liva Forsberg, and Marius Damslev.
IFC Midnight is releasing Speak No Evil theatrically in New York and Los Angeles on September 9th ahead of its Shudder debut on September 15th. Cover your mouth and check out the trailer below.
