Run Rabbit Run and Late Night With the Devil: meet the directors

Who wrote it?

Australian author Hannah Kent.

Is there a trailer?

Do critics like it?

Hm, not hugely so far. Rotten Tomatoes has it on a critics rating of 37% (based on 49 reviews), with the consensus: ‘Run Rabbit Run boasts some powerhouse performances, but they’re largely overwhelmed by a thin plot and overreliance on stale horror tropes.’

Any trivia?

According to IMDB: Snook replaced Elisabeth Moss in the lead role. The latter was originally cast but had to pull out to due to scheduling conflicts so Snook was cast instead.

Don’t say?

Does this mean Shiv and Tom have split up for reals?
