Movie Info

Jack Thurlowe (Rory Culkin) is a successful magazine editor with a beautiful fiancée Cleo (Britt Robertson) who is seven months pregnant with their first child. However, this perfect life is turned upside down when Jack discovers that his parents have suffered a brutal car accident back in his hometown. His beloved father has perished while his mother Teresa (Lin Shaye) has survived. Upon returning home for the funeral, the volatile nature of Jack and Teresa's relationship boils to the surface and the constant barrage of sympathy from the town starts to weigh on Jack's grieving process. With the arrival of a mysterious new neighbor, Duncan (Louis Hunter), Jack finds audio recordings and video tapes left behind by his father that lead him to question childhood memories and the very foundation of his identity. With pressure mounting and sanity crumbling, Jack comes to learn that the idyllic world he has believed in since infancy is in fact a nightmare playground full of lies, deception, violence and murder.

  • The script, by Mr. Dekker, spirals into a muddle of ambiguity, leaving only the imagery and the performances to save the movie. And try as they might, they cannot.

  • While the movie's artfully made and daringly disturbing, Dekker ultimately overestimates how many sick twists one motion picture needs.

  • [It's] an original and intriguing film that offers a unique perspective on the idea of self, the movie presenting an odd mid-life crisis at twenty-something.

    Aug 30, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Jack Goes Home triples down on weird and stays in a dark, twisted place. It's a grueling, joyless viewing experience.
