The first trailer lands for You Should Have Left, starring Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried – and the film will debut on demand next week.

In a busy year for Blumhouse Productions, it’s been confirmed that the studio’s latest film, You Should Have Left, is to bypass cine, and to debut on demand.

The film stars Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfriend, and it’s based on a book by Daniel Kehlmann. The book has been adapted for the screen by David Koepp, and he’s directed the movie too.

The film is now heading to on demand services from June 19th – so, the end of next week – and a trailer for the movie has landed too. Here’s what’s in store…

And here’s the official synopsis too…

In a new psychological thriller from Blumhouse Productions and legendary screenwriter David Koepp (Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible, Panic Room), Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried star as a couple seeking a restful vacation on an isolated edge of the world only to discover that secrets demand a reckoning … and travel with you. In this terrifying, mind-twisting tale, a father fights desperately to save his family from a beautiful home that refuses to let them leave. Theo Conroy (Bacon) is a successful middle-aged man whose marriage to his much younger actress wife, Susanna (Seyfried) is shredding at the seams, frayed by her secretiveness, his jealousy, and the shadow of his past. In an effort to repair their relationship, Theo and Susanna book a vacation at a stunning, remote modern home in the Welsh countryside for themselves and their six-year-old daughter, Ella (Avery Essex). What at first seems like a perfect retreat distorts into a perfect nightmare when Theo’s grasp on reality begins to unravel and he suspects that a sinister force within the house knows more than he or Susanna have revealed, even to each other. Based on the novel by best-selling German literary sensation Daniel Kehlmann (Measuring the World), You Should Have Left is written and directed by David Koepp (Stir of Echoes). The film is produced by grandmaster of terror Jason Blum (The Purge and Halloween franchises), Kevin Bacon and Dean O’Toole (Walk Like a Panther), and is executive produced by Jeanette Volturno, Couper Samuelson and Derek Ambrosi.

Pricing for the film hasn’t yet been announced, but don’t be surprised to see it following the £15.99 for 48 hour model that Universal has been working with so far. We’ll keep you posted.
