      Audience Consensus

      The story's a bit slow and confusing, right up to an ending that will leave some disappointed -- but Rebecca Hall is terrific, and there are some truly tense and scary moments.

      Lindsey Bahr Associated Press Confidently directed by David Bruckner from a clever script written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, "The Night House" excels in tension building -it is both unpredictable and unnervingly restrained. Rated: 3/4 Sep 1, 2021 Full Review Rex Reed Observer Rarely have I seen a movie in which simply everything demands clarification. Rated: 2/4 Aug 25, 2021 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com Hall ties herself into pretzel-like knots: flying high one moment, wallowing in self-pity and despair a nanosecond later. Rated: 3.5/4 Aug 25, 2021 Full Review Zach Pope Zach Pope Reviews A creepy, tension filled, dark descent that gets darker and darker the more you dive into the story. Rebecca Hall gives one of her best performances & David Bruckner directs the hell out of this Jul 26, 2023 Full Review Gayle Sequeira Film Companion What's more terrifying — to have someone you love abruptly snatched away from you? Or to discover you're safer with them gone? Both revelations are crushing, and the film does a fine job laying the groundwork and leaving viewers to decide for themselves. Dec 13, 2022 Full Review Dallas King Flick Feast The film works best when it is a straight up haunted house movie. When the third act takes a violent swerve into psychological thriller, What Lies Beneath-territory... the rock-solid performance of Hall will keep you invested. Rated: 3/5 Nov 12, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
