In an era when most of us are spending more time at home than we ever have before, our home can often feel like both a privileged blessing and a prison.
Add in an evil spirit to the mix, and you have the plot of the new Netflix film His House, which tracks a couple exploring the terrifying realization that their new dwelling is haunted.
Helmed by British writer-director Remi Weekes, and snatched up by Netflix after it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, the film tells the story of a married couple from war-torn South Sudan (Gangs of London’s Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù and Lovecraft Country’s Wunmi Mosaku) who struggle to adjust to life in a small English town. They soon realize, however, that the home they've been placed in contains an evil force that threatens their newfound feeling of safety.
“I loved the script and I had never read anything like it," Mosaku said of the film. There’s something so special about this film, the emotional journey. The truth is the scariest thing.”
Fans have expressed their excitement at the fact that there's not only another critically-acclaimed spooky movie to look forward to on the streaming service this season, but one that's directed by an up and coming Black filmmaker.
Check out the trailer for His House, premiering October 30 on Netflix.
