From Searchlight Pictures comes "Nightbitch," a hotly anticipated horror project featuring Amy Adams. The film is based on Rachel Yoder's novel of the same title, published in 2021.

The project garnered significant attention when six-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams revealed her involvement. Curiosity surrounding the film heightened with the announcement of Marielle Heller as the director.

 

Rachel Yoder’s book took my breath away. I haven’t felt this way about [a] book since I read The Diary of a Teenage Girl many years ago,” said Heller when the film was first announced. “Rachel’s darkly hilarious tale of motherhood and rage made me feel seen. And adapting it with Amy Adams in mind has been the thing that has kept me going through the pandemic. I am so thrilled to be bringing this movie to life with wonderful partners in Anne Carey, Annapurna Pictures, and Searchlight. It is a dream come true.”

The 48-year-old actress, embodying the role of a stay-at-home mother grappling with the fear of metamorphosing into a dog, sported a markedly different look from her glamorous red carpet appearances. She was clad in a flowing striped shirt and oversized trousers, opting for a makeup-free look as she filmed scenes for the movie.

 

What is ‘Nightbitch’ About?

"Nightbitch" follows the story of a stay-at-home mom in a quiet Midwestern town, caring for her toddler while her husband travels for work. She gave up her art career to focus on motherhood and feels overwhelmed by the daily routine.

As her feelings of isolation and frustration deepen, the protagonist undergoes increasingly bizarre and unsettling transformations. What starts as an unexplained tuft of hair on the back of her neck progresses to sharpened teeth and the emergence of a tail-like growth. Seeking answers, she discovers a book titled "A Field Guide to Magical Women: A Mythical Ethnography" at the library, leading her into a realm of intriguing possibilities. The plot thickens as she becomes entangled in a mommy group intertwined with a multi-level marketing scheme, revealing hidden secrets beneath the surface. It will be exciting to see Amy Adams take on such a complex role.
