Netflix's new horror movie will have you even more terrified of the housing market
"Death. It is like it moves in... and never leaves."
There is never a bad time of year to watch a new horror movie.
Everyone associates it with Hallowe'en, but The Conjuring came out in the height of summer, the remake of IT arrived in early September, and the upcoming Insidious: Chapter 4 will be out in cinemas before January ends.
To that end, we bring you the first look at Netflix's new horror movie The Open House.
The film tells the story of a teenager (Dylan Minnette, who you might know from 13 Reasons Why and Don't Breathe) and his mother (Piercey Dalton, who seems to be making her feature length debut here) moving into a friend's holiday home after his father/her husband passes away.
However, they soon find themselves besieged by threatening forces not long after moving into the new home, and they begin to think that whoever is terrorising them is much closer to home than they realise.
Yep, there are some definite shades of Disturbia, The Babadook and the oddness of Get Out (what, exactly, is going on with the neighbours here?) to all of this, and on top of the scares, we're looking forward to getting to the bottom of the mystery behind it all.
The Open House debuts on Netflix on Tuesday 19 January.
