There are some titles that are meant to send a chill up your spine. This one, much like a lot of 70’s and 80’s exploitation horror have that in common. Titles like Don’t Go Into the Basement or God Told me To all have an eerie ring to them. Now, Netflix’s There’s Someone Inside Your House echoes that same menace.
The trailer for Patrick Brice’s (Creep) There’s Someone Inside Your House is here to work overtime on creeping us the hell out. It features a killer that likes to wear the mask of the person they are killing. Talk about that next level 3D printing technology. Hey, if Darkman can do it, so can we.
The synopsis for There’s Someone Inside Your House goes like this:
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 is based on Stephanie Perkins’ New York Times best-selling novel of the same name and written for the screen by Henry Gayden (Shazam!), directed by Patrick Brice (Creep) and produced by James Wan’s Atomic Monster (The Conjuring) and Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps (Stranger Things).
Patrick Brice is one of my favorite directors working today. The guy is excellent across his body of work. His films, Creep and its sequel were chilling to their core. But, Brice’s work always has this very specific type of humor running through even his most terrifying film moments, and this one seems to be rife with it.
We can’t wait to see this one and luckily we won’t have to wait long! It lands on Netflix on Oct. 6, just in time for Halloween fun.
