'We Need To Do Something': Release Date, Cast And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)

The weird, off-the-wall horror movie We Need to Do Something is headed our way soon, and you absolutely need to go out of your way to see it. So I've rounded up some important info you need to know before checking the film out. Or to convince you to see it. Either one.

We Need to Do Something Release Date and Where You Can Watch It

We Need to Do Something will arrive in theaters, on digital, and on VOD on September 3, 2021. While many movies are screaming that they'll be available in "theaters only," I'm glad the fine folks at IFC understand the need to make things available digitally right now as well. Kudos.

What is We Need to Do Something?

We Need to Do Something is a horror film based on the book by Max Booth III. In the book, "A family on the verge of self-destruction finds themselves isolated in their bathroom during a tornado warning." That is a deliberately vague synopsis because this is one of those stories where the less you know, the more effective things are.

We Need to Do Something Synopsis

Here's the We Need to Do Something synopsis:

After Melissa and her family seek shelter from a storm, they become trapped. With no sign of rescue, hours turn to days and Melissa comes to realize that she and her girlfriend Amy might have something to do with the horrors that threaten to tear her family – and the entire world – apart.

A little more detailed than the book synopsis, but still a bit vague. Having seen We Need to Do Something, I can tell you that there are plenty of surprises in store, and the film gets more and more unhinged as it unfolds.
