Reptile: Plot

The official synopsis of the film reads, “When a realtor is stabbed to death in a show home, homicide detective Tom Nichols (Del Toro) has no shortage of suspects to investigate. The body was discovered by the victim’s boyfriend and colleague, Will (Timberlake), with whom she fought the night before. The victim’s ex (Karl Glusman), to whom she was still married, is possibly a drug dealer. Meanwhile, an eccentric man (Michael Pitt) with a longstanding grudge against Will and his family seems to take an unhealthy interest in the case.

All of these people have a motive, yet none of the existing hypotheses feel entirely convincing to Tom, who only recently relocated to Scarborough, Maine with his wife, Judy (Silverstone). The couple had been living in Philadelphia, where Tom was partnered with a detective convicted of several crimes.”

Reptile: Release Date

Starting on September 22, it will play in cinemas for a short time.

The thriller will be released on Netflix on September 29 shortly after it becomes available to view on television. The most recent Del Toro production is a Netflix original, so after its TIFF debut and brief theatrical run, fans may only watch it on Netflix. Previously, the movie was supposed to have a limited release on September 29 and then launch on Netflix on October 6.
