There’s Someone Inside Your House is a movie that I wasn’t expecting. Moreover, he is one of these Netflix movies that either can have a big success or fail big time! The thing that begs the question is the movie worth your time?

Pros

So, without further ado, let’s dive into the pros of There’s Someone Inside Your House film. We can say that the movie is a mix of 13 Reasons Why, and Scream, Moreover, you can be surprised from the get-go how the movie is influenced by the movie Scream.

Thus, I can say that the movie can get you invested in the first, and put a question out there, what is going to happen? The first scene was done perfectly, fin terms of the Slasher. Lovers of the slasher category will love the first scene.

Secondly, the directing especially in the first part of the movie gets you interested in the characters, interested in seeing good ways to kill, so to speak. To sum up, it promises you a good slasher if you are a fan of the sub-genre.

Thirdly, there were some good killing scenes, especially the opening scene and another scene that comes up later. Of course, this movie is packed with blood scenes, so it is not suitable for people below 18 years old.

Cast

Let’s talk about the cast of There’s Someone Inside Your House movie. In my humble opinion, I find the acting to be between normal and acceptable for most scenes.

The cast is not well known, I couldn’t recognize any of the characters, which is not a problem, in one condition, I need to see good acting. And in this film the acting was modest, nothing there to criticize really, there are some simple mistakes that can go water under the bridge.

And unfortunately, the pros end up here!

Cons

Firstly, as I said in the first paragraph, the movie is heavily influenced by Scream movie and 13 Reasons Why, The thing that made a negative impact in the building of the characters. Thus, the characters building wasn’t that strong, unfortunately.

Moreover, if you are a fan of the slasher category of movies, and focused on the first third of the movie, there is a big chance you will figure out the killer!

So, during the entire movie, there were expectations that I have been making, and hoping that they won’t happen. However, that was exactly what was happening.

Secondly, the end was a little bit dull, and if you hope for something satisfying, I guess you are more likely to be disappointed.

I mean, the scenario is just as naive and trifle as it gets, I shall say.

To sum up, many things were expectable, many things were way too simple, you can anticipate extremely bad dialogues, loaded with ideologies that don’t serve the story…

The movie is literally an hour and a half, and the writer couldn’t find something good to fill the movie with.

There’s Someone Inside Your House movie rating

As a final evaluation, There’s Someone Inside Your House movie if you are a fan of slasher movies, you will find it to be between a normal to a bad movie. On the other hand, if you didn’t see many movies of the category there is a chance you will find it a little bit “enjoyable” or a “pass time”.

So, with that said, my rating of There’s Someone Inside Your House movie is 4.3!
