It’s hard to put a new spin on the classic haunted house movies, but this idea is quite original and is as simple as changing the atmosphere to the depths, take an aquatic horror approach to the supernatural proposal. The duo of French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, best known for their ultraviolent ‘Al interior’ (2008) take us to a submerged sanctuary with ‘The Deep House‘, in which a pair of divers discover a cursed place in the depths of a lake.
An original idea
In the official synopsis of the film:
While diving in a remote lake, a pair of YouTubers who specialize in underwater exploration videos discover a house submerged in deep water. What was initially a unique find soon turns into a nightmare when they understand that the house was the scene of heinous crimes. Trapped, with their oxygen reserves falling dangerously low, Tina and Ben realize that the worst is yet to come: they are not alone in the house. “
The trailer promises a film shot with a water camera in the style of the duo ’47 Meters Down ‘, with a tension that increases as the exploration progresses. The use of sound is harrowing and terrifying, particularly the moment of the meeting between the mystery that houses the house and the two protagonists that move in complete darkness.
The trailer for ‘The Deep House’ is very effective because it only exposes dark and blurry shots of the sunken house that, breaking the norm lately, reveal almost nothing of what awaits the viewer. James Jagger and Camille Rowe are the protagonists of this promising idea, which opens in theaters in France on June 30. No release date for Spain has been announced at this time.
