(Welcome to …And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)
The latest film we're covering in this "…And More" series deals with a romantic couple who goes on vacation in France to explore the depths of a lovely lake. The pair of divers discover nothing untoward, strengthen their bond over the course of their well-deserved break from routine, and return home with a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling relationship.
…okay, just kidding. Just in time for Halloween, "The Deep House" offers a neat twist on the usual "haunted house" trope. The object in question is at the bottom of a French lake and the intrusion by the unwitting couple triggers a series of deeply unfortunate events. Read on for everything you need to know about how to watch "The Deep House," which is absolutely not a fluffy romantic-comedy. You've been warned!
The Deep House Release Date And Where To Watch It
"The Deep House" will be made available on Epix and digitally on November 5, 2021. The film first released in France back on June 30, 2021 and faced an uncertain future regarding its international release … at least until the film caught the eye of mega-producer Jason Blum and he had his horror-friendly Blumhouse studio step in to acquire the distribution rights.
What Is The Deep House?
"The Deep House" is an intriguing genre mash-up with ambitions of blending together underwater horror with the well-worn "haunted house" premise. The film has previously been described as focusing on "…a couple of YouTubers who go diving in a remote French lake and discover a house submerged in deep waters. Their adventure turns into a nightmare when they understand the house harbors atrocious crimes and find themselves trapped with hardly any oxygen left. Their presence has awakened a dark spirit haunting the house."
The Deep House Director, Writer, And More
"The Deep House" comes from the directing duo of Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, who previously worked on the 2007 French horror film "Inside," 2011's "Livid," "Among the Living" in 2014, and "Texas Chain Saw Massacre" prequel "Leatherface" in 2017. Given the subject matter, much of "The Deep House" had to be shot underwater in huge water tanks. The piecemeal set-up for each scene proved immensely challenging, leading Bustillo to remark that:
"Shooting a film underwater is like making a movie for the first time. All the technical aspects had to be done differently there, and it forced us to reinvent the mise en scène process and the way shots are organized."
"We couldn't leave the whole house in the water for days at a time because the decors would have been ruined, so we would immerse only parts of the house under water, and were shooting scenes floor by floor; we could only immerse one meter per hour, which represented six meters."
The Deep House Cast
"The Deep House" stars James Jagger and Camille Rowe as the leading pair of terribly unlucky characters who go on to awaken things that would have been better off left alone. The rest of the small cast also includes Carolina Massey and Eric Savin.
