The House takes the charm and unsettling nature of stop-motion animation to dark new depths. The multi-narrative film is brought to life by several directors- Emma de Swaef and Marc Roels, Niki Lindroth von Bahr and Paloma Baeza.
The story takes place across different eras as we follow a poor family, an anxious developer, and a fed-up landlady as they become tied to the same mysterious house. I’m impressed by the amount of unnerving horror and dark comedy that are present in the trailer alone.
We need to support films that are this creative and explore uncharted waters. As the audience for adult animation grows with every passing year we could see a rise in horror stories in many animation styles.
Watch out for The House on Netflix January 14 2022.
