There are a lot of different horror flavors at play in this trailer for the upcoming Jack Goes Home. I’m not sure which is the primary mover. See if you can figure it out:
Is there a monster in that attic? Is Rory Culkin just an innocent dude dealing with screwed up parents? Is he actually just losing his mind? Who knows! That’s why you have to watch the movie, I guess!
If it helps, here is a handy official 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.
There’s a lot on that synopsis that isn’t present in the trailer at all, so this one is quite a curiosity at this point. We can all find out what’s really going on in that attack when the film comes out October 14. In the meantime, here's a poster for the film:
