STREAM IT: Mena Suvari is friends with a monster and her kid thinks she’s crazy in the new horror movie What Lies Below
Meeting your mom’s new boyfriend is never easy, but it’s even more of a challenge when said boyfriend isn’t what he seems. That’s the set-up for Braden R. Duemmler’s debut creature feature, What Lies Below, starring American Beauty’s Mena Suvari as a single mom who thinks she’s won the boyfriend lottery when she falls for the strapping John Smith (Trey Tucker). But her teenage daughter, Liberty (Ema Horvath), just knows there’s something off about the guy… if only she could prove it. Take a look at this exclusive clip to get a sense of why exactly she’s so suspicious about John — let’s just say it’s in his eyes. Duemmler’s slow-burn script does a nice job balancing ordinary domestic drama with supernatural flourishes, building to a third act that’s got several big twists up its sleeve. — Ethan Alter
What Lies Below premieres on digital and on demand Friday, Dec. 4 on FandangoNOW.
