‘His house’: The plot
The film revolves around a young refugee couple. After making a terrifying escape from war-ridden South Sudan the couple struggles to adjust to their new life in a small England’s town. Unaware of the evil hiding deep down under the surface of this small house they are living in. Get ready to experience terror through every corridor.
Rial ( Mosaku) and Bol ( Dirisu) are a couple who escape barbarity in South Sudan through a boat to England. They are handed over to a detention centre which assigns them a house they can’t leave as a result of their exile. The couple really wanted to put all the traumatic experiences behind them and wanted to start a new life but things didn’t turn out as they wished.
Soon, they both started feeling some paranormal stuff in the house which had a connection with their past they wanted to bury.
Let’s not spill the beans anymore. You need to watch it yourself, but don’t dare to watch it alone.
‘His house’: a creative team of this horror film
‘Remi Weekes’ made his directorial debut with this breathtaking film ‘His House’. A twisted terrifying film starring a stunning cast of Wunmi Mosaku, Sope Dirisu and Matt Smith in lead roles. The story is written by Felicity Evans and Toby Venables, whereas, the screenplay is also written by ‘Remi Weekes’.
The eye-catching cinematography is done by Jo Williams and Julia Bloch. In association with the new regency, vertigo pictures and BBC, the distribution rights are owned by Netflix. Overall, it’s a horrid movie to experience. It’s truly a kind of film the viewers and Netflix needs.
Putting this 93 min film into one sentence its “The unbearable traumas from the past which we hold back can only make it more painful and tough to bear.”
The most admirable thing about the director is that he really made a smart spin on this genre. ‘Haunted house’ It could be a jump scare full of creepy scenes. The over the top characters, viewers can’t connect with. The not so amazing story line full of screams, blood and disturbing scenes.
But the creatives came up with their own novelty. Horror is such a vibrant genre and ‘Weekes’ used it flawlessly in ‘His House’ targeting social issues, highlighting the perspective of black people in Sudan packed in a spine-chilling horror the viewers never seen before.
Very well composed music, the intriguing plot. Every jump scare is beautifully crafted as if the viewer is present on the scene, the imagery and visuals are breathtaking. A very well executed gem.
Take away: A well-build masterpiece
Overall, the film is jam-packed with all the essentials needed for a ‘haunted house’ type horror movie. The creatives played so well with our psyche throughout the film that you feel sadness, anger, empathy and sympathy for the characters. You get to taste the ‘reality dose’ of human nature in such a spooky and haunted manner that you’ll never forget.
