RLJE Films has acquired the rights to last year’s FrightFest favourite Housewife from Can Evrenol, the director of 2015’s nightmarish and fantasy-horror Baskin.
Although Housewife is very weird and chilling in parts, it does suffer from the same issues as Baskin. Neither films manage to hit the level of madness that their trailers would suggest. However, they are both great, memorable horror films and Housewife has a particularly bizarre execution.
Holly’s childhood was a nightmare—at age 7, she watched her mother kill her sister and father. Twenty years later, Holly’s dreams remain plagued by that painful memory. An unexpected reunion with an old friend further complicates matters, introducing Holly to a strange cult-like group that follows a celebrity psychic, one who takes a special liking to Holly. And because of him, her worst nightmares become shockingly real.
Housewife stars Clementine Poidatz and David Sakuri, and has a release date slated for autumn 2018. Check out the eerie trailer below.
