A young nurse, Lily (Ruth Wilson), moves in to a secluded old house to care for an elderly, reclusive horror novelist. But it seems the pair is not entirely alone. Now Streaming on Netflix.

Ok, I have been staring at the trailer of ‘I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House‘ on Netflix for months and months. AND THEN TODAY – THE MOVIE WAS FINALLY ONLINE. I had so much to do today, but I pushed it all to the side because I’ve literally been waiting to see this movie for all of 2017. It did not disappoint.

The movie plays like some sort of poem. Very fluid.

The script is almost beautiful… despite the horror it portrays.  Don’t worry about too much blood and death, this movie really is more about suspense than it is about shock value.

One more thing about the script before I push forward, I could literally make a thousand quote images based on some of the things I heard from the movie. One line after the next stood on its own. Art. Bravo to the men and women who poured their hearts into the fold. I feel like a woman wrote this – I guess I should just look that up…

Even the music is slightly always off key in order to keep you constantly feeling uneasy. My heart raced just a little bit faster than usual for the entire score – start to finish. If you caught Hannibal on TV, it sort of resembled that feeling. Violins out of tune and scraping in ways they shouldn’t… but in ways that make sense for the scene. Even pianos jumped in every now and then – same sort of vein. Confusing your senses.

I never like to give a spoiler. I never like to tell you the end. I only like to tell you whether you should waste your time or not. I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House is worth your time. Horror fans and thriller fans and those that are willing to take a chance of this genre but don’t really like the sight of blood should all watch this Netflix movie.

I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House is what all suspense movies should be – slow, steady, uneasy… a test if you will. How long will you watch before you take a breath? How long will you watch before you look away? How long will you watch before you realize that you never want it to end?

Now, I want to note, if you are someone who wants full frontal when it comes to horror – this isn’t for you. I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House is a mind f***. You are kept perpetually waiting for everything and nothing at the same time. Don’t expect demons and devils and blood filled bathtubs. That is not the melody that you will hear. This is an entire movie based off of anticipation revolving around the meeting of Polly and how it will impact our leads.
