Brandy Leads A24's Latest Horror Film: 'The Front Room'


"The House Is Mine," A24 wrote in an Instagram caption, revealing a first glimpse at its latest horror film – fronted by none other than Brandy. Entitled The Front Room, A24's newest freaky foray is based on a book of the same name and is slated for global release this fall.

Per the logline of the psychological thriller: "Everything goes to hell for newly-pregnant Belinda (Brandy) after her mother-in-law (Kathryn Hunter) moves in. As the diabolical guest tries to get her claws on the child, Belinda must draw the line somewhere..."

Written and directed by Max Eggers and Sam Eggers, The Front Room also stars Andrew Burnap as Brandy's husband and Neal Huff.

"Your father's final request was that he wants you to take your mother into your home," Huff tells Burnap after his father's recent passing.

"It's my room now," Hunter replies as she settles in.

As the two-and-half-minute trailer picks up, the tension between the couple and their new resident intensifies, with Burnap's mom continuing to press and probe a pregnant Brandy with racially-fueled interrogations.

"She thinks the holy spirit possesses her and gives her power," Burnap explains to Brandy, as his mother begins to sinisterly spiral.

"When you're cooped up with a newborn and a mother-in-law, it can drive anyone crazy," Brandy closes.
