Netflix recently announced that they will be adapting Stephanie Perkins’ New York Times best selling novel There’s Someone Inside Your House. And who better to join forces with the digital giant than James Wan (The Conjuring, Saw). Netflix Production company 21 Laps, who brought audiences Stranger Things, will be working with Wan’s production company, Atomic Monster. The screenplay is coming from Henry Gayden, who recently wrote the sci-fi superhero flick Shazam! for director David F. Sandberg. As of now, James Wan is not set to direct the There’s Someone Inside Your House, however no director has been announced. Already though, this project is starting off in good hands.
There’s Someone Inside Your House is based on the 2017 novel of the same name from Stephanie Perkins. The story centers around high school student Makani Young who moves from Hawaii to Nebraska to live with her grandmother. One by one students at her new school begin to fall victim to gruesome murders. Stephanie Perkins is primarily teen romance novelist, however There’s Someone Inside Your House has been hailed as a great new addition to the horror genre.
The film is expected to have the same nostalgic coming-of-age vibe as recent hits, Stranger Things and It. Netflix has been churning out horror films exclusives to their streaming library, at an amazing rate. In the last year alone, Netflix has brought us The Ritual, Ravenous, The Babysitter, Little Evil, , and The Open House. Netflix clearly has a vod
devotion to the horror genre which we can all appreciate. The addition of There’s Someone Inside Your House to Netflix’s library will surely bring even more horror fans to the streaming platform. And I for one, cannot wait to see this film.
