After making a harrowing escape from war-torn South Sudan, a young refugee couple struggle to adjust to their new life in a small English town that has an unspeakable evil lurking beneath the surface.
A power-house debut from Remi Weekes, deftly balancing social commentary with old school horror (and for once, without zombies). The movie pulls you inside the life of a Sudanese refugee couple assigned to an apartment in London after a harrowing escape via boat from their home country. In addition to the nightmare of their experience, they’ve got a potential poltergeist. Movies often face-plant while struggle to convey what is real, a dream, a backstory, or something else. "His House" weaves these shifts expertly. And you will not see the twist coming in the last act. Here's hoping Remi Weekes joins Ari Aster and Robbert Eggers, bringing horror to a new level of intellectual freakiness.
