Universal Pictures Set To Release Blumhouse’s Speak No Evil

Speak No Evil

Universal Pictures will release Blumhouse’s SPEAK NO EVIL on Friday, Aug. 9, 2024 – wide, taking the place of the UNTITLED BLUMHOUSE FILM.


True terror is a family affair.

From Blumhouse, the producer of M3GAN, The Black Phone and The Invisible Man, comes a new adaptation of the acclaimed Danish horror sensation Gæsterne (Speak No Evil), about a family invited for a weekend at an idyllic country house—a dream holiday that warps into a snarled psychological nightmare.

Written and directed by James Watkins, the writer/director of the award-winning gothic ghost story The Woman in Black and co-creator, director and writer of the International Emmy winning crime series McMafia, Speak No Evil is based on the screenplay of Gæsterne by Christian Tafdrup and Mads Tafdrup. Released in 2022, Gæsterne earned 11 Danish Film Awards nominations, the Danish equivalent of the Oscars.

Speak No Evil stars BAFTA and Golden Globe nominee James McAvoy (X-Menfranchise, His Dark Materials), who previously starred in the Blumhouse-produced hit thrillers Split and Glass.

The film is produced by Jason Blum for Blumhouse and is executive produced by Paul Ritchie, Christian Tafdrup, Jacob Jarek and Bea Sequeira. Universal Pictures presents a Blumhouse production.
