There’s Someone Inside Your House: Dull Neo-Slasher Fails to Live Up To Its Title

Based on best-selling novelist Stephanie Perkins’ novel of the same name, There’s Someone Inside Your House arrives on Netflix with a lot of hype.

Haunted on Netflix: ‘Sort Of’, ‘Maybe’, ‘Not Really True’ Stories Back For Season 2

Last Halloween, Netflix released Mike Flanagan’s outstanding, The Haunting of Hill House. Oh, Netflix also released paranormal docu-series, Haunted. Of course, calling it a ‘docu-series’ is pretty generous. That is, no episode had any investigation or, you know, evidence. Haunted borrowed an infotainment format to put scary stuff up on screen to cash in on […]

In The Tall Grass: Netflix Adaptation Can’t See The Forest For The Weeds

And the Stephen King renaissance marches on. Not unlike the the first wave of King adaptations, horror fans have been treated to the good (Gerald’s Game, It), the middle-of-the-road (Pet Sematary), and the bad (The Dark Tower).
