I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House gets a haunting trailer

Netflix recently picked up the sophomore effort from Osgood Perkins, who quickly made a name for himself in the genre with his supposedly fantastic feature film debut The Blackcoat’s Daughter—I say supposedly because that movie, originally titled February, has been struck with delay after delay, so no one has actually seen the damn thing outside of the festival circuit. Either way, that doesn’t take away from the fact that Perkins’ latest, I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, looks absolutely phenomenal. The trailer reveals our first look at the classic ghost story, one full of brooding mystery and plenty of horror.

I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House hits Netflix on October 28th.

The film follows Lily, a young nurse hired to care for elderly Helen Bloom, a best-selling author of ghost stories who has chosen to live out her final days in her beloved country home – a home that holds an horrific ghost story of its own.

It stars Bob Balaban (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom), Lucy Boynton (February) and Ruth Wilson (The AffairSaving Mr. Banks).

  1. This could quite possibly be the most boring horror movie I’ve ever tried to watch in my entire life. Literally. No exaggeration. So, so, so boring! Needless to say, I didn’t watch the whole thing. After the first few minutes I just skipped ahead by about 15-20 minutes to see what was going on, and same thing, nothing. I finally made it to the final sequence hoping maybe something would explain what I had been looking at, but to no avail. This makes “The Others” look fast-paced. What was so great about “The Others” was the payoff at the end that flipped what could have been a snorefest into something unforgettable. No such luck with this one.
