In the trailer, Sarah moves with her son Chris to a remote house located by the woods where she promises they will be happy.

One night, Sarah wakes in the middle of the night and sees the back door of the house is open, leading her to hurry out into the woods in search of Chris.

Soon after, she notices a change in the boy and is further disturbed by an old woman they meet on the road who smashes her face against the car window in an apparent attempt to attack Chris. 

She also meets with a man, who appears to be a psychologist, who asks her if there is any history of ‘disorders’ in her family and is later horrified when he displays an abnormal level of strength by pushing a kitchen table across the room.  

Sarah becomes increasingly convinced that the boy in her house is not her son and fears she is in danger.      

The film holds an approval rating of 86% on film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes and has been favourably compared to the 2014 horror hit, The Babadook.
