The Beach House is an indie apocalyptic sci-fi thriller that presents an alluring mix of scorching seaside imagery, claustrophobic isolation, mysterious contagion and gruesome body horror.
In the film, Emily and Randall escape to his family’s beach house to reconnect. Their trip is interrupted by Mitch and Jane Turner, an older couple acquainted with Randall’s estranged father. Unexpected bonds form as the couples let loose and enjoy the isolation, but it all takes an ominous turn as increasingly strange environmental phenomena begin to warp their peaceful evening. As the effects of an infection become evident, Emily struggles to make sense of the contagion before it’s too late.
Director Jeffrey A. Brown lists The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Exorcist, and The Blair Witch Project as a few of his inspirations when creating the film that opened the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival last year. The Beach House has been described as a “Lovecraftian terror full of gooey nightmares.”
One review sums it up: “An atmospheric triumph from newcomer director Jeffrey A. Brown… A slick tale of invasion and destruction that’s both intimate and cosmically grand. The Beach House is both a loving throwback to monster pictures from yesteryear, but at the same time, it helps the genre evolve to new places.” – Daniel Kurland, Bloody Disgusting.
