In the US, IFC Midnight released Speak No Evil in New York and Los Angeles on September 9, 2022. The film was made available for streaming on Shudder on September 15, 2022.

Speak No Evil is a bold entry into the genre for writer/director Christian Tafdrup that expertly blends terror, humour and the mundanities of human interaction,” said Craig Engler, general manager of Shudder. “We can’t wait to transport our members to the Dutch countryside for a casual weekend of psychological twists and shocking turns.”

Said director Christian Tafdrup, “I am delighted to team up with Shudder as our distribution partner for Speak No Evil — I am so looking forward to meeting the U.S. audiences with this film, and appreciate the great passion and ambitions of the Shudder team.”
