Another day, another quick and to the point horror movie review.
Makani Young is still adjusting to her new life in Nebraska when classmates start getting gruesomely murdered. The killer is also using the murders to expose the secrets of their victims. Something that terrifies Makani even more since she has some secrets of her own.
First off, I expected to hate this movie. Netflix does put out a bunch of garbage with their throw everything at the wall strategy for their original movie offerings.
Surprisingly, I really didn’t hate it! I actually kind of liked it.
The movie has a good bit of things to offer. The killer’s mask is the most unique and clever offering in a long, long time. Also, the score is pretty great. It’s got a retro almost synth feel full of somber tones and ambient noise.
My main issue with There’s Someone Inside Your House is that it’s not really much of a horror movie. The kills are pretty gruesome, don’t get me wrong. But there isn’t much back and forth between the killer and their victims. Sometimes it’s all about the dance. The movie is not nearly as focused as the tension in these scenes as it is with just the overall mystery.
Still, I’m pleasantly surprised with the overall result.
There’s Someone Inside Your House will definitely make you think twice about taking that long two-hour nap you’re looking forward to later.
