You Should Have Left is a 2020 psychological horror film written and directed by David Koepp, based on the 2017 book of the same name by Daniel Kehlmann. It stars Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried. Jason Blum served as a producer through his Blumhouse Productions banner.


A former banker, his actress wife, and their spirited daughter book a vacation at an isolated modern home in the Welsh countryside where nothing is quite as it seems.

Why It Sucks

  1. It feels more like a drama instead of an actual horror movie.
  2. Dreadful script, as it was not written well.
  3. The jump scares are just too weak, and they don't even look too anticipated.
  4. A lot of mystery doesn't even happen until like an hour into the movie.
  5. Poor acting.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried give out a solid performance.
