Are you obsessed with true crime? I know I am! That’s why the minute I heard Netflix has a movie based on a crime here in the Hudson Valley, I had to share it with you!
Netflix is releasing the movie “Things Heard & Seen” on April 29, 2021, which is based on a crime that happened in the Hudson Valley, according to New York Upstate. The movie stars Oscar-nominated actress Amanda Seyfried, James Norton and “Stranger Things” actress Natalia Dyer. It was based on the book “All Things Cease to Appear” by Elizabeth Brundage.
According to the Democrat & Chronicle, Brundage got the idea for the story while living in Brighton, N.Y. In 1992, she learned of the death of Cathleen Krauseneck, a Brighton woman who was found in bed with an ax lodged in her head a decade earlier. Her 3-year-old daughter had been in the house for hours with the corpse before Cathleen’s husband James allegedly returned from work to discover the grisly scene.
Netflix describes the horror movie as “An artist relocates to the Hudson Valley and begins to suspect that her marriage has a sinister darkness, one that rivals her new home’s history.”
