Berk and Olsen’s 2019 darkly comedic thriller Villains starred Bill Skarsgard and Maika Monroe as lovebirds on the lam who come across an isolated house, only to find a young girl chained in the basement. When the parents, played by Jeffrey Donovan and Kyra Sedgwick, come home, things go downhill from there. The movie premiered at the 2019 edition of SXSW to strong reviews and was released by Gunpowder & Sky.

Here’s the opening scene.
