Speak No Evil – TRAILER

Speak No Evil trailer - James McAvoy is not all that he seems

Not the the Judge’s order to Trump in his latest court case but the Speak No Evil trailer is the latest from writer-director James Watkins whose films include the excellent film version of The Woman in Black and the under rated Eden Lake (which is great!).

When an American family is invited to spend the weekend at the idyllic country estate of a charming British family they befriended on vacation, what begins as a dream holiday soon warps into a snarled psychological nightmare.

From Blumhouse, the producer of The Black PhoneGet Out and The Invisible Man, comes an intense suspense thriller for our modern age, starring BAFTA award-winner James McAvoy (SplitGlass) in a riveting performance as the charismatic, alpha-male estate owner whose untrammeled hospitality masks an unspeakable darkness. Speak No Evil stars Mackenzie Davis (Terminator: Dark FateHalt and Catch Fire) and SAG award-winner Scoot McNairy (ArgoA Quiet Place Part II) as American couple Louise and Ben Dalton, who, along with their 11-year-old daughter Agnes (Alix West Lefler; The Good Nurse, Riverdale), accept the weekend-holiday invitation of Paddy (McAvoy), his wife Ciara (Aisling Franciosi; Game of ThronesThe Fall) and their furtive, mute son Ant (newcomer Dan Hough). 

Written for the screen and directed by James Watkins, the writer-director of Eden Lake and the award-winning gothic ghost story The Woman in BlackSpeak No Evil is based on the screenplay of the 2022 Danish horror sensation Gæsterne, written by Christian Tafdrup and Mads Tafdrup. That film earned 11 Danish Film Awards nominations, the Danish equivalent of the Oscars.

At present there’s no confirmed release date but we’re betting on Summer/Autumn
