A House on the Bayou from Alex McAulay
A getaway in the swamplands is probably the least likely idea for a vacation. Who knows what lurks in the area that may include mosquitos, crocodiles, or perhaps something more nefarious.
From director and writer Alex McAulay, A House on the Bayou is a terrifying film about a family staying at a mansion with a certain visit from unknown neighbors.
The film stars Angela Sarafyan (Westworld), Paul Schneider (Goodbye to All That, Parks & Recreation), Lia McHugh (Marvel’s Eternals, The Lodge), and Jacob Lofland (Mud, Maze Runner).
Here is the official synopsis:
In an effort to reconnect and mend their relationship, Jessica and John Chambers (Angela Sarafyan, Paul Schneider) seek an idyllic getaway with their daughter Ann (Lia McHugh) to a remote mansion in rural Louisiana. When suspiciously friendly neighbors show up for dinner uninvited, the weekend takes a sinister turn as the fragile family bond is tested and dark secrets come to light.
Alex McAulay made his directorial debut with 2001’s The Sparkle Room. Last year, he directed a thriller about two troubling teenagers with a trapped security guard at the bottom of a well that starred Jack Dylan Grazer, Fionn Whitehead, and Rainn Wilson. In 2017, he wrote the coming of age story Flower that starred Zoey Deutch and Kathryn Hahn.
A House on the Bayou is now playing on EPIX and available for digital purchase via Paramount Home Entertainment.
