"You will not leave the house again." Magnolia Pictures has revealed an official trailer for the creepy stuck-in-a-home thriller Held, an intriguing thriller from a screenplay written by Jill Awbrey who also co-stars in the film. This originally premiered at Frightfest last year, and arrives on VOD in April coming up this spring. A couple's ailing marriage is put to the test when they are held hostage in an isolated vacation rental by an unseen "Voice" that commands their every move. While the situation grows increasingly brutal, Emma and Henry must work together to uncover the truth and find a way out before it's too late. Co-starring Jill Awbrey and Bart Johnson, and co-directed by Travis Cluff & Chris Lofing. The strange masked man with the microphone is the strangest part about this. I'm curious to find out what's going on! What about you…?

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Travis Cluff & Chris Lofing's Held, direct from YouTube:
