There’s Someone Inside Your House (2021) – Movie Review

The Fantasy Review‘s Spoiler-Free Review of There’s Someone Inside Your House (2021).

Rating: 2/5

There’s Someone Inside Your House (2021) is a decent slasher, similar to the other mediocre Netflix movies that are being released these days. It’s nothing new, and what it does has been done better by other movies before. The only shining light might be the characters.

Review of There's Someone Inside Your House (2021)


This movie has a pretty good premise, and the opening sequence had me thinking this movie was going to be great! There’s someone in this guy’s house, and he gets killed – sorted. But, that’s kind of the end of the premise… and the movie hasn’t even begun?

There were some stand out performances, most notably by Sidney Park, and I really liked the backstories, mysteries, and motivations of the characters. These elements are great, I think, because this was adapted from a book.


As I have already mentioned, There’s Someone Inside Your House only used the drawing point of the movie once, right at the beginning – I’m talking about the title! Sure, there are some cool locations for kills throughout, but this sounds like a slasher movie set in people’s homes – that’s super creepy! – but it’s not. So, it was a bit of a disappointment.

The mysteries were good and the whodunit plot was engaging, but it wasn’t a satisfying reveal. It could have been anyone and it was that person? I was immediately disappointed with that.

Final Thoughts

If you want a cool slasher movie about teenagers and a masked killer coming into homes killing people, with a whodunit mystery, watch Scream. There are six Scream movies and they all do this plot better.
