I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House (2016)

Filmed in Ottawa, this US-Canada¬†production has been getting quite a bit of buzz. A Netflix original, it is in line with the work of Shirley Jackson and films like Darling and even more popular ghost stories to date. Created by the son of Anthony Perkins, it has horror hommage moments tempered with a very quiet and truly sweet story. Many have noted the slow-burn nature and while true it also lacks a little something so to say ‘slow-burn’ feels vague. Now the butt of many asinine twitter hashtags, it’s really one that must be seen to mull over its vague and quiet peculiarities.
