‘Things Heard and Seen’ Plot
The story follows, “A Manhattan artist relocates her young family to a historic hamlet in the Hudson Valley. As she settles into a new life, she begins to suspect that her marriage has a sinister darkness, one that rivals her new home’s history.”
Speaking to EW, writer-directors Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman have promised that their film is not a horror film; rather, it is a supernatural thriller, where the real horror of the story lies within a marriage.
“I think one of the most frightening things in the world is a marriage,” says Springer Berman. “It can be incredibly wonderful, and it can be incredibly frightening and scary, both at the same time.”
She adds: “I would hope that people could watch a movie and get caught up in the drama and the scares and the relationships, but also come away thinking about some of the bigger questions about karma, about the nature of life and death….
“And also, as a woman, as a female director, I was very interested in the sort of idea of a woman finding her voice, and struggling to find her voice in a marriage and in the world.”

‘Things Heard and Seen’ Trailer
Netflix has released an official trailer for ‘Things Heard and Seen’ on 1st April 2021. If you haven’t watched it yet, so you can watch it here:
This highly anticipated thriller Things Heard and Seen is finally coming out on April 30, 2021 to stream on Netflix.
It will be interesting to see if it can get any buzz off lead actress Amanda Seyfried. Depending on how well Mank is received by Academy voters, she could be in line to receive her first Oscar nomination, and Things Heard and Seen certainly wouldn’t mind riding that attention.
Whether she wins is another story (no one knows what’s going to happen with the Oscars this year and it’s wild to reach the end of January without a clear frontrunner), but Netflix will certainly be pushing her for a nomination.
