What is Things Heard and Seen about? If you’re assuming it’s a horror movie, you’re right. The Netflix movie has fans of supernatural thriller and haunted house movies excited, especially because the end of April is recognized as halfway to Halloween in some circles.
The movie also falls in the “Movies Based on Books” category, since it’s based on a novel by Elizabeth Brundage, All Things Cease to Appear.
Beyond being a spooky movie based on a book, what exactly is Things Heard & Seen about?
Let’s check out what we know so far.
What is Netflix’s Things Heard and Seen about?
Let’s first take a look at who’s in it since it boasts a pretty impressive cast.
Some may recognize Amanda Seyfried from the Mamma Mia movies. Lately, she’s been getting a lot of buzz for her role as Marion Davies in another Netflix movie, Mank.
In fact, that movie has received several 2021 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and one for Seyfried for Best Supporting Actress.
Anyway, Seyfried stars as Catherine Clare, who’s married to George Clare (played by James Norton, who some may recognize from the Netflix crime series Happy Valley).
The Clares move to the tiny hamlet of Chosen, New York, when George takes a job teaching in small Hudson Valley college. It’s a great opportunity for him, but Clare didn’t really want to leave the big city. She feels isolated and alone in Chosen, which is a fictional town and could serve as an uplifting name for a place in a happy movie. However, it has a pretty dubious feeling name for this one.
With so much time on her hands, Clare uses it to get to know her new house intimately as she tries to make it a home. That’s when she discovers it harbors secrets.
We’ll find out when it starts streaming on Netflix on April 29!
Things Heard and Seen also stars Karen Allen (Animal House, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark), Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul), Natalia Dyer (Stranger Things), and even the Academy Award-winning F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus, The Grand Budapest Hotel).
