New teen slasher movie deserves recognition

There’s Someone Inside Your House, available to watch through Netflix, is a horror/slasher movie that has a nice, comforting take on an old trope. The teen slasher genre in horror has created classics like Scream, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scary Movie, Halloween, and more.

The movie is also a book-to-movie adaptation. There’s Someone Inside Your House, written by Stephanie Perkins, was published on September 12, 2017. The movie was produced by big names like Shawn Levy, James Wan, Dan Cohen, and Michael Clear. The movie includes actors like Sydney Park, Theodore Pellerin, Asjha Cooper, Dale Whibley, Jesse LaTourette , Burkely Duffield, and more.

The storyline focuses on teen girl Makani Young and her quest to find the person who is killing her fellow students. Her and her friends, Oliver, Darby, Zachariah, Alex, Rodrigo, and Caleb, investigate the murders, in addition to some fatal trouble themselves.

The movie provides the comforting, familiar feel of a slasher movie while also including terrifying jump scares and a surprising ending. The language and some explicit, violent scenes do warrant the reading of trigger warnings. However, the movie is absolutely worth watching and is great for this Halloween season.
