Trailer Opens Door Onto Horror In ‘His House’

Netflix has added yet another horror-themed entry to its Netflix & Chills lineup for this Halloween season.

The streamer this week dropped a tantalizing trailer for His House–set to premiere Oct. 30, just in time for the big day–as reported by JoBlo.com. This film joins The Babysitter: Killer QueenRebeccaThe Haunting of Bly Manor and Vampires vs. The Bronx on the Netflix horror menu to properly usher in “October Country”.

His House–the feature film directorial debut of Remi Weekes–premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival to glowing reviews. The film–starring Wunmi Mosaku (Lovecraft Country) and Sope Dirisu (The Huntsman: Winter’s War)–follows a young couple who escapes war-torn South Sudan only to find themselves in a “rundown house of their own in a small English town that has an unspeakable evil lurking beneath the surface.”

Weekes in a statement said his film is “a haunted house story about two immigrants trying to make a home in a foreign country. Unlike traditional haunted house stories where the protagonist might be able to escape, our protagonists–two displaced asylum seekers–do not have the privilege to simply leave. Rather, they are stuck having to survive within their house.”

Weekes also commented on his love for movies and moviemaking. “I’ve always enjoyed the spectacle of cinema,” he said. “The magician’s trick of throwing us into an unfamiliar world, forcing us to empathize with strangers, creating moments that unhinge reality and open up new possibilities and ideas.”
