We all need a friend, right? But even friendship can take a sinister turn when past misdeeds become motive. Jason Bateman goes serious in Blumhouse' next big chiller... although at the rate they're churning out thrillers/horrors Blumhouse risks diluting its catalogue and getting a reputation... be careful Blumhouse, be very careful.

That said, Rebecca Hall and Joel Edgerton? We're in for this one! No word of a lie, we are there every step of the way. It's not the most original concept in the world but with these guys on board, who's to say that this rehashed story can't make for edge of the seat viewing?

Stay tuned for a review clower to release, it's ging to be great fun! Check The Gift out in cinemas August 7

Simon (JASON BATEMAN) and Robyn (REBECCA HALL) are a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon’s high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn’t recognize Gordo (JOEL EDGERTON) at first, but after a seemingly coincidental series of encounters proves troubling, a horrifying secret from their past is uncovered after nearly 20 years. As Robyn learns the unsettling truth about what happened between Simon and Gordo, she starts to question: how well do we really know the people closest to us, and are past bygones ever really bygones?

From the producer of Whiplash and The Purge, Jason Blum, comes a chilling psychological thriller that marks the feature directorial debut of acclaimed actor and writer Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Zero Dark Thirty, Warrior).
