Renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson (Elisabeth Moss) is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece, when the arrival of two newlyweds upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband (Michael Stuhlbarg).

The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naïve young couple at their door.

Director Josephine Decker's follow-up to her acclaimed MADELINE'S MADELINE is executive produced by Martin Scorsese.
