You Should Have Left

An author and his family retreat to a quiet, isolated rented house for a week. His plan is to work on a screenplay for the sequel to another film. Immediately, we sense some unnamed tension as we are following the author’s journal—he’s having some trouble focusing on the task at hand. Is it the house? Perhaps the creepy store owner, who warns them to “get away.” Their isolation? His strange dreams and hallucinations? A text message on his wife’s unattended phone? Imagination run amok?  It’s like watching a tightly-winding watch spring or an ominous countdown. A short, masterful look at the inner turmoil of losing one’s grip and not understanding why. Creepy and mesmerizing.
