‘His House’ is a 2020 Netflix original horror/thriller starring Sope Dirisu (Gangs of London), Wunmi Mosaku (Luther), and Matt Smith (Doctor Who). A refugee couple leaves their war torn home of South Sudan by fleeing to England. They must go through the system and stay at a government chosen house until they are cleared by the English government and can become full citizens. Only something evil is lurking within the house, something that doesn’t want them there.
The trailer looked a little weird, but it has 100 percent rating on rotten tomatoes, which I typically don’t go off rotten tomatoes, their scores tend to not always be accurate. IMDB gives it a 6.5/10, which I typically go off of IMBD, their scores tend to align with mine, but I figured I would give it a shot. It starts off the bat with ‘Mother’ type feels, something weird is going on, you’re just not sure what. ‘Mother’ is extremely weird and is not a good movie whatsoever, so luckily ‘His House’ doesn’t follow that direction. It is actually a pretty deep movie, I wouldn’t describe it as a horror, but more of a psychological thriller. you see what’s going on with the witch in their house, but the movie is about what you don’t see, about their personal demons, about what they’re battling on the inside. Once you find out what exactly why the husband has his inner demons, it changes the whole movie. It’s pretty messed up. ‘His House’ genuinely surprised me, like I said it’s a pretty deep film. I give it a solid 9/10.
