Netflix has made itself a home for teen-centric horror that combines scares with a light-hearted touch. The slasher genre lends itself perfectly to this tone, which is why the ’90s gave us films such as Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. And now there’s another in There’s Someone Inside Your House, which has a bunch of young people running for their lives from a killer who knows far more than he should. But what makes this film so promising is who is behind the camera.
Directing There’s Someone Inside Your House is Patrick Brice, who is probably best known for his Creep horror franchise. But outside of that, he’s had the acclaimed indie comedy The Overnight, and the workplace horror-comedy Corporate Animals. The script is by Henry Gayden, who you might recognize as writer of Shazam, The Monster, and Earth to Echo. Lots of talent here.
The cast includes The Walking Dead actress Sydney Park, Théodore Pellerin, Asjha Cooper, Dale Whibley, Jesse LaTourette, Diego Josef, Burkely Duffield, Sarah Dugdale, William MacDonald, Andrew Dunbar, and Markian Tarasiuk.
SYNOPSIS: Makani Young has moved from Hawaii to quiet, small-town Nebraska to live with her grandmother and finish high school, but as the countdown to graduation begins, her classmates are stalked by a killer intent on exposing their darkest secrets to the entire town, terrorizing victims while wearing a life-like mask of their own face. With a mysterious past of her own, Makani and her friends must discover the killer’s identity before they become victims themselves.
There’s Someone Inside Your House hits Netflix on October 6th.
