Housewife is the 2017 Turkish horror film directed by Can Evrenol. Evernol is most notably known for the 2015 horror feature Baskin, based off his 2013 short of the same name. Watch the first trailer for the film, above.
On a snowy eve, Little Holly’s sister and father are killed by her frantic mother. Years later, Holly is married, lonely, and her life is soon about take a turn for the ultra weird, when she visits “Umbrella of Love and Mind”.
The film is directed by Can Evernol and co-written with Cem Özüduru. It stars Clémentine Poidatz, David Sakurai and Defne Halman.
Housewife will have it’s North American Premiere on the Opening Night of The Brooklyn Horror Fest, October 12th. You may purchase badges for the fest here. For those of us unable to attend, it’s setting up to be an impatient wait. Senior Programmer Matt Barone has this to say about the film:
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.
A wide release date has not yet been set for the film. If you haven’t yet checked out Baskin, it is currently available to stream on Shudder.
