A House on the Bayou (2022)

In A House on the Bayou, Chambers is a professor cheating on his wife with one of his students. One day, Jessica, his wife, finds out and confronts him about it. John admits to Jessica that he was the one who cheated on her. Jessica shows him the evidence, and he doesn't deny it. However, Jessica doesn't want the relationship to end for their daughter's sake.

The couple has decided to go on vacation to the house in the Bayou. However, the house owner is also a real estate agent and decides to use her as a subject for a film he is making. This is an ominous tone, as the couple may be in for more than they bargained for. First, the couple walked up to the big, spooky house and immediately felt weird. Then, bizarre things started happening, and they couldn't explain it.

The reconciliation plan never goes because they're both still mad at each other. But their daughter befriends a boy named Isaac while she's out with her father. Then, John receives a note from a mysterious older man who claims to have been observing him in the house. The older man's tone is ominous, and he warns John that something terrible will happen.

As the father and daughter duo arrived at the house, Jessica began to get mad at John for not bringing the veal. Suddenly, a knock came at their door. Their neighbor, Isaac, invited Jessica over to her house for veal. As Isaac arrives at her home, her grandmother also arrives, starting a chain of events.

What was Isaac's real identity?

John didn't want to leave Vivienne or Jessica, but he knew he had to choose. So he hired a professional killer to take care of his wife. He thought Isaac was a hitman, but he didn't know that Isaac was the Devil.

Isaac believed he was a judge who metes out punishment to people according to their crimes. He reasoned that John must have committed the grave sin of adultery and plotted to murder his wife. The house was where he would administer his brand of justice.

John's true intentions with Vivienne were revealed to Jessica by Isaac. John was then locked in an empty room by Isaac, who left him with the Coyote. The Coyote devoured John. John's punishment was not over. He continued to torment those around him.

He took Vivienne into the house and forced Jessica to burn her in the car. Her helpless wife couldn't do anything else. But, losing her husband was only the beginning of her troubles. Now she had to fight for her own life and that of her daughter.

Is the Devil real?

If Isaac is right about his beliefs, then Jessica believes that God will ensure his survival after she shoots him. Isaac had told Jessica about how he and his grandfather would bring sinners into their house to punish them. So Jessica fled the scene along with her daughter.

The following day, Jessica went to the police station to follow up on the abandoned house she had seen the night before. However, when they arrived at the address, no home was found. The officer explained to Jessica that the house she had seen was not a physical house but a manifestation of Isaac, a spirit who punishes sinners. The police let Isaac do what he wanted because they were getting rid of the evil people.

The bleeding from Anna's nose in the final scene suggests that Isaac, likely a demon, was present. However, his exact nature is unexplained, leaving it up to the viewers to decide whether he is a demon or just an average human.
