‘Tis October--officially the scream season as it’s the month of Halloween. And, Netflix is all geared up with its fresh slate of scream-out-loud flicks, with one that’s just about to premiere on the platform. The upcoming American slasher horror There's Someone Inside Your House is based on the New York Times bestseller of the same name, authored by Stephanie Perkins. It is helmed by Patrick Kack-Brice, the man and the mind behind the unnerving and warped Creep movies. Henry Gayden has written the script while Shawn Levy, James Wan, Dan Cohen, and Michael Clear, who are known to produce The Stranger Things and The Conjuring universe, have bankrolled the film.
What is the plot of the film There's Someone Inside Your House?
It is about a gang of high school friends and youngsters who are stalked and hunted by a killer on the loose, whose hit list comprises students harbouring big secrets. Makani Young enrolls in a high school in Nebraska, unaware of the horrors that await her. Soon, her friends are killed one by one by a serial killer, who dons a mask resembling the faces of the victims and publicly lays bare their secrets along the way.
Makani is still grappling with her past, which she has kept shrouded and guarded all this while, and is under the impression that no one at her school knows what it is, but with the gory killings on the rise, the truth is far from comforting.
The trailer was dropped last month on the Youtube channel of Netflix. Watch it here.
Who are the cast members of There’s Someone Inside Your House?
There’s Someone Inside Your House stars Sydney Park, Théodore Pellerin, Sarah Dugdale, among others, in key roles.
What makes Makani Young stand out as the Final Girl?
As noted by Screenrant in an interview with her, Sidney Park, who plays Makani Young, shares her name with Sidney Prescott of the Scream movie franchise, which is considered a cult classic in the American slasher horror genre. And given that there haven’t been many women of colour as the final girls in slasher films, it’s a welcome reversal on the white girl as the final girl norm. “I think just being myself, being who I am, being Korean and Black, being young, it just opens up so many doors and so many possibilities for the other Makani’s of the world,” Sidney told Screenrant, adding that a final girl like her hasn’t been seen. "Even in her demeanor, her character, her personality, everything. It’s just so, so cool,” she said.
Sidney Park has acted in scary films before such as The Walking Dead and Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists.
When and where will the film premiere?
The film premiered at the Fantastic Fest held that took place between September 23 to 30. It will have its global digital premiere on Netflix on October 6, at 12:30 PM (IST).
What is the duration of the film?
The film has a runtime of 96-minutes.
