About The Film

Merricat Blackwood lives on the family estate with her older sister Constance and their aging Uncle Julian. They are the last remaining members of the Blackwood family after a fatal dose of arsenic found its way into the sugar bowl one night. Sealed off from the curiosity and hostility of the villagers, their quiet isolation is disturbed by the arrival of their charming cousin Charles, putting Merricat on high alert.  

Adapted from Shirley Jackson’s beloved gothic tale, director Stacie Passon brings a meditative touch to this peculiar family and their dark secret, making them as relatable as they are strange. Though equally cloaked in mystery, Alexandra Daddario’s Constance bubbles with honeyed lightness, while Taissa Farmiga’s Merricat defiantly roots into their home and way of life.
