Netflix’s new horror His House has scored a rare 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. His House has been the talk of Netflix since its release a few days ago. The film has proved to be a critical smash, and following the rare fresh score on the platform.
The film stars Wunmi Mosaku and Ṣọpẹ Dìrís as a refugee couple struggling to adapt to a new life in England. The other thing which makes them struggling is the ghosts that haunt them.
“Featuring genuine scares through every corridor, His House is a terrifying look at the spectres of the refugee experience and a stunning feature debut for Remi Weekes,” the critical consensus reads.
Reviews for the film have also been full of praise, with The Independent hailing it as a “commanding debut” for Weekes. Rolling Stone praised “its uncanny merging of political experience and the usual.” While the New York Magazine called it “beautifully made” with “monstrously effective” scares.
“He crafts a horror film in dual, clashing palettes – you get twice the scares, in a sense,” critic Clarisse Loughrey wrote.
“There is the terror from within, the apeth, here is played by formidable creature actor Javier Botet, whose spindly limbs have already haunted the frames of It and Crimson Peak.”
She added: “Weekes, with the aid of cinematographer Jo Willems, crystallizes the UK’s ‘hostile environment’ towards immigrants and brings it to gnawing, icy life.”
