Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.07.20] United Kingdom thriller

A safe full of cash in a remote, empty house seems like the perfect score for Mary and her friends but when the owners, an older couple, come home early, the seemingly easy hit turns into a bit of a nightmare.

Based on a comic book from acclaimed artist Hermann and Yves H., The Owners tars "Game of Thrones" star Maisie Williams, "Dublin Murders" star Ian Kenny and is adapted for the screen and directed by French director Julius Berg. Berg has been working in TV for a decade and his latest series, "The Forest" is currently streaming on Netflix.

The twist here, that the returning homeowners turn out to be far worse than the would-be robbers, is an interesting idea. While on the one hand, I think this reveal would have been better left as a surprise, it's also clear why it's included in the trailer; without it, The Owners looks like your standard fair, nay even forgettable, thriller.

The Owners will be available on digital and VOD September 4.
