Holly’s childhood was a nightmare—at age 7, she watched her mother kill her sister and father. Twenty years later, Holly’s dreams remain plagued by that painful memory. An unexpected reunion with an old friend further complicates matters and introduces Holly to a strange cult-like group that follows a celebrity psychic, who takes a special liking to Holly. And because of him, her worst nightmares become shockingly real.
With 2015’s hardcore BASKIN, Turkish filmmaker Can Evrenol established himself as one of horror’s most exciting new voices. HOUSEWIFE fully delivers on that promise. While BASKIN mashed up John Carpenter with Clive Barker, Evrenol’s second feature salutes Italian horror masters Mario Bava and Dario Argento. Equal parts savage and surreal, HOUSEWIFE is heaven for those who love dream logic as much as unrelenting sadism. —Matt Barone
