Images Online is a virtual effort by Images Cinema to continue to introduce the best new films to our community while we are temporarily closed. Films can be watched online on your at-home screens. The cost of each online “ticket” sold will be split between film distributor Neon and Images Cinema, so each rental will directly help the theater weather these challenging times. Thanks to the filmmakers for their partnership, and thanks to you, our film-loving community, for your continued support of Images.

Renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece when the arrival of newlyweds upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband. The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naïve young couple at their door.

"Tart, verbally lively and neatly constructed, adroitly mixing in tension, innuendo and dark humor to keep the drama at a satisfying low boil most of the way." — Hollywood Reporter
