Jason Blum will serve as a producer under his Blumhouse Productions banner. In June 2018, Amanda Seyfried joined the cast of the film.

Release: Originally scheduled for a theatrical release, Universal Pictures decided to release the film digitally in the United States and Canada through Premium VOD on June 18, 2020, due to the movie theater closures since mid-March because of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.

The site’s critics consensus reads: “You Should Have Left hints at a genuinely creepy experience, but never quite manages to distill its intriguing ingredients into a consistently satisfying whole.” At Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 47 out of 100, based on 24 critics, indicating “mixed or average reviews”. Kate Erbland of IndieWire gave the film a “B–” and said that “when You Should Have Left is at its best, it’s unconcerned with mapping out such easy clarifications and leans into the raw madness of corrosive guilt and a house-made to punish people who dare come inside its walls.”

You Should Have Left – Official Trailer
On-Demand Everywhere June 18

In a new psychological thriller from Blumhouse Productions and legendary screenwriter David Koepp (Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible, Panic Room), Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried star as a couple seeking a restful vacation on an isolated edge of the world only to discover that secrets demand a reckoning … and travel with you.

In this terrifying, mind-twisting tale, a father fights desperately to save his family from a beautiful home that refuses to let them leave.

Theo Conroy (Bacon) is a successful middle-aged man whose marriage to his much younger actress wife, Susanna (Seyfried) is shredding at the seams, frayed by her secretiveness, his jealousy, and the shadow of his past.

In an effort to repair their relationship, Theo and Susanna book a vacation at a stunning, remote modern home in the Welsh countryside for themselves and their six-year-old daughter, Ella (Avery Essex). What at first seems like a perfect retreat distorts into a perfect nightmare when Theo’s grasp on reality begins to unravel and he suspects that a sinister force within the house knows more than he or Susanna has revealed, even to each other.

Based on the novel by best-selling German literary sensation Daniel Kehlmann (Measuring the World), You Should Have Left is written and directed by David Koepp (Stir of Echoes). The film is produced by the grandmaster of terror Jason Blum (The Purge and Halloween franchises), Kevin Bacon and Dean O’Toole (Walk Like a Panther), and is executive produced by Jeanette Volturno, Couper Samuelson, and Derek Ambrosi.
