To say His House is the best haunted house horror film of the last ten years would be undermining it's brilliance. I was told to watch this film because someone I trust said it was the best horror film of 2020, and I think they were seriously underselling it as well. Writer and director Remi Weekes uses the horror genre as a means to tell a very important story. Much like Ari Aster did back in 2018 with the masterpiece Hereditary. Except this story is about refugees from Sudan and the trauma they bring to Britain, as they try to ease into a new civilization, married couple Riol and Bol's relationship is tested by a dark spirit. Much like Hereditary, grief is used here as a means of storytelling. Both of our lead characters deal with their grief in different ways and their different mental states determine how the dark spirit manipulates them. It's a terrifying film premise and it's executed brilliantly. It's one that tested the will and strength of my fiancé as we watched. While it didn't scare me as much as Hereditary did, it's only because I was too much admiring the craftmanship of this movie. I must also point out that Sope Dirisu as Bol is a revelation. Wunmi Mosaku as Riol just barely being outshined.
