In the horror genre, the slasher is a time-honored tradition. Typically, these films follow a group of teens as they try to outrun/outsmart/outlive a serial killer with a knife who is hellbent on murdering them for some reason. So, watching the trailer for “There’s Someone Inside Your House,” you won’t be shocked to know that Netflix’s new slasher doesn’t really reinvent the wheel.
That said, in the realm of slasher films, “There’s Someone Inside Your House” is much more akin to the late-‘90s/early-‘00s “Scream”-esque horror film, as the teens are stalked by an unknown killer that is seemingly murdering them for the secrets that they keep. Plus, there’s the whole self-awareness that Wes Craven beautifully portrayed in the aforementioned “Scream.”
The film stars Sydney Park, Théodore Pellerin, Asjha Cooper, Dale Whibley, Jesse LaTourette, Diego Josef, Burkely Duffield, Sarah Dugdale, William MacDonald, Andrew Dunbar, and Markian Tarasiuk. ‘Your House’ is directed by Patrick Brice, from a script by Henry Gayden and based on the novel by Stephanie Perkins. Brice is probably best known for his horror franchise, “Creep.” He also has directed episodes of “Room 104” and the film, “Corporate Animals.”
“There’s Someone Inside Your House” debuts on Netflix on October 6. You can watch the trailer below.
