James McAvoy is the holiday host from hell!

A beefed up James McAvoy frightens the living daylights out of his children and houseguests in the English-language remake, Speak No Evil from Universal Pictures.

McAvoy plays an overbearing, perfection-obsessed father named Paddy. Alongside his wife, Ciara (Aisling Franciosi), and their mute son, Ant (Dan Hough), they meet American couple Louise (Mackenzie Davis) and Ben (Scoot McNairy), along with their 11-year-old daughter, Agnes (Alix West Lefler), while on holiday. After hitting it off, he invites the couple for a weekend getaway, but he begins to unsettle them with his aggressive behavior.
