THERE’S SOMEONE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE is a new Netflix horror movie that premiered at Fantastic Fest 2021, which should tell you something. More precisely, it should tell you that this Netflix production is worthy of playing on big screens and works remarkably well as a classic teen slasher horror movie.

While it keeps you guessing – with some nice twists and turns along the way – it’s the characters and cast that really make it work. Also, it was produced by James Wan who is still one of the great horror filmmakers (despite the fact that Malignant has left audiences torn).

Continue reading our full There’s Someone Inside Your House movie review below and check it out on Netflix from October 6, 2021.

Perfect opening scene for a horror movie

While the opening scene of any movie can play a key role in setting the tone, sometimes I feel it’s even more true for horror movies. Just think of Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell or James Wan’s The Conjuring franchise. They both excel at using one story to set the rest of the movie.

For There’s Someone Inside Your House, you’ll get one of the strongest opening scenes for a horror movie.

First, you’ll be introduced to the killer, who wears a mask that resembles the face of their next victim. Second, you’ll see how brutal the kills will be. Plus, you get the motive: The killer wants to expose the dark secret of their victim. The mask element is a cool angle that works well throughout the film. And the kills will clearly be brutal in true slasher fashion!

There's Someone Inside Your House – Netflix Review

Great casting

The star of this new Netflix horror movie is Sydney Park who you may recognize from The Walking Dead, Santa Clarita Dietor the 2017 horror movie Wish Upon. Sydney Park plays Makani Young, who is a classic final girl.

Well, in the sense that she’s a kick-ass character anyway.

Among Makani’s friends, you’ll see many familiar faces along the way. Including Jesse LaTourette (The Devil Below), Dale Whibley (October Faction), Asjha Cooper (Black as Night), Jesse LaTourette (The Devil Below), and Théodore Pellerin (The OA).

Watch There’s Someone Inside Your House on Netflix!

There’s Someone Inside Your House was directed by Patrick Brice, who had his feature film debut with Creep (2014). He went on to direct Creep 2 (2017). Also, he was the one who came up with the story for this crazy horror franchise with its star Mark Duplass.


Our review of Creep 2 which is a strong sequel for a very innovative original movie >

For his latest movie, the screenplay was written by Henry Gayden and based on a book by Stephanie Perkins. Henry Gayden also wrote the screenplay for David F. Sandberg‘s Shazam! and the upcoming sequel. For me, Henry Gayden is definitely someone to keep your eye on. He writes characters that feel real and works with stories that surprise in all the right ways.

Be sure to check out There’s Someone Inside Your House when it comes out on Netflix. This teen slasher is the kind of movie that you automatically want a sequel to. The style just works well – much like Scream did. And yes, the star of the Scream horror franchise, Neve Campbell, is actually mentioned during this Netflix movie. In a perfect way!

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.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
