Netflix has had mostly great success with original content, especially regarding TV shows. The movies have been more hit or miss (*ahem* Adam Sandler) and when it comes to horror, it’s been harder to get a real hit. The Babysitter proved to be a crowd pleasing success, but it’s hard to please horror fans. Hopefully Netflix’s newest offering The Open House will do just that.
In the first trailer for The Open House we get a look at a movie that seems one part ghost story and one part home invasion with a hint of Get Out. Starring Piercey Dalton and Dylan Minnette as mother and son, there seems plenty of room for an emotional story while creating a creepy atmosphere. Here’s hoping that The Open House is more original and exciting than paint-by-numbers. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
A teenager (Minnette) and his mother (Piercey Dalton) find themselves besieged by threatening forces when they move into a new house.
The Open House premieres exclusively on Netflix January 19, 2018.
