The upcoming psychological thriller JACK GOES HOME has just dropped a stunning set of press materials. Along with a trailer detailing the psychological breakdown of a Culkin brother (a family that has always had a bead on how to play damaged young men), we have gotten a poster that's a wonderfully eerie design using the age-old trick of "make a face out of something that isn't a face" and making it eerie and impactful once more. Check out the trailer and poster below!
Written and directed by Thomas Dekker, star of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2010, Heroes, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, JACK GOES HOME has the following synopsis:
Jack Thurlowe (Rory Culkin) is a successful magazine editor with a beautiful fiancée Cleo (Britt Robertson) who is seven months pregnant with their first child. However, this perfect life is turned upside down when Jack discovers that his parents have suffered a brutal car accident back in his hometown. His beloved father has perished while his mother Teresa (Lin Shaye) has survived. Upon returning home for the funeral, the volatile nature of Jack and Teresa's relationship boils to the surface and the constant barrage of sympathy from the town starts to weigh on Jack's grieving process.
With the arrival of a mysterious new neighbor, Duncan (Louis Hunter), Jack finds audio recordings and video tapes left behind by his father that lead him to question childhood memories and the very foundation of his identity. With pressure mounting and sanity crumbling, Jack comes to learn that the idyllic world he has believed in since infancy is in fact a nightmare playground full of lies, deception, violence and murder.
JACK GOES HOME features a cotillion of horror stars: Rory Culkin (SCREAM 4), Britt Robertson (Under the Dome), Lin Shaye (INSIDIOUS), Natasha Lyonne (ANTIBIRTH, AMERICAN PIE), Daveigh Chase (THE RING), and Louis Hunter (The Fosters).
The film will be available in select theaters and on VOD on October 14th!
