Blumhouse’s You Should Have Left Trailer Starring Kevin Bacon


Despite catching some flack from theatre owners (and AMC Theatres, in particular) for some of their big direct-to-VOD releases, Universal is continuing to push forward with more this summer. The latest title to be announced is a Blumhouse psychological thriller called You Should Have Left, based on the novel by Daniel Kehlmann. The movie is written and directed by David Koepp (Premium Rush) and it finds him reteaming with Kevin Bacon, who also starred in Koepp’s Stir of Echoes back in 1999. Bacon plays a screenwriter suffering from writer’s block who takes a vacation in the Welsh countryside with his wife (Amanda Seyfried) and daughter (Avery Essex). What starts as a relaxing getaway turns dark when he finds that there is a sinister force at work in the house and his past might come back to haunt him. You Should Have Left arrives on VOD on June 19th; check out the trailer below and see what you think.

    age difference between bacon and seyfried: 27 years …

  • That was the first thing I checked too. Yuck.

  • Lori Cerny

    The fact that they point Bacon’s age early in the trailer may indicate a plot point…? Uh, maybe? Still icky.

  • Lori Cerny

    I’m definitely gonna watch this – specially since it automatically saves to your calendar. All VODs should do this.

    I thought Kevin was the little girl’s grandfather. The trailer is conventional and the movie reeks of old socks in the closet. Nothing new.
