FANTASTIC FEST 21’ “There’s Someone Inside Your House" - movie review

Just when you thought no one was ready to take on this young generation and re-capture the slasher audience Patrick Brice proves us wrong. His teen oriented masked killer film THERE'S SOMEONE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE has exploded at FANTASTIC FEST this year and once it hits Netflix it will be gobbled up for many reasons provided. Every single element you could want in a teen slasher is present as all the characters are there. Now this might be a carbon copy of something you’ve seen before it doesn’t matter because this is the slasher for the next generation.

The main thing I enjoyed about THERE'S SOMEONE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE is it had no reason to stray away from exactly what it wanted to be. No weird time travel or alien abduction needed here this is just your good old classic giallo whodunit masked killer slasher film. The biggest thing you need to do is establish the kids of the generation for these types of slashers to work. No issues here with Brice and company as they executed it from the start. While some may get upset at how cliché all the characters were it doesn’t matter because it just shows how smart the filmmakers are in regards to really bringing out the essence of what a generational slasher should feel like it. It should represent exactly what we see in the culture and these kids do it.

Now let’s talk about the killer which has a sick look that flows well in the background. The look of a killer is aesthetically pleasing. While it's not new because it will remind you of a lot of things you’ve seen before in your wax style killers. The approach is still fresh enough to garner multiple watches to see how they lay this all out. You will really enjoy THERE'S SOMEONE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE if you are a good old fashion slasher movie fan.

I'm not expecting for this to be the biggest and most talked about film at FANTASTIC FEST this year We know when it goes down to the list of the films that were just a lot of fun you will for sure hear people talk about it and this will do well when it hits that home audience



is directed by Patrck Brice and stars Sydney Park, Théodore Pellerin, Asjha Cooper, Jesse LaTourette, and Diego Josef. It is an adaptation of the 2017 novel of the same name by Stephanie Perkins.
