The scariest movie in recent years has been released on Netflix: what "The House" is about and why it struck the audience so hard

The movie "The House" is the scariest movie released on Netflix

The horror movie "The House" has recently appeared on the Netflix streaming service, although it was released in 2019. This movie has become the scariest one to appear on the platform in recent years. The film received mixed reviews from film critics, but it disturbed the audience.

The cruelty of people became the main issue of the movie, Mirror writes. The film was released on Netflix on January 1, as it tells the story of a family Christmas vacation in a remote cabin. However, the events in the movie are far from Christmas.

The story centers on stepmother Grace Marshall, played by Elvis Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough, who is forced to stay alone with her two children, Aiden and Mia, her fiancé for the holidays. Grace is the daughter of the founder of an extremist cult who committed mass suicide 12 years ago, which makes the children think that their father has traded their mother for a psychopath.

Over time, Aiden and Mia learn more about Grace's past, including extremist rituals, so the children refuse to establish a relationship with her. The protagonist begins to go crazy because of the abundance of Catholic iconography in the house, which causes her to have nightmares about her father.

Over time, personal belongings begin to disappear from the house, and the calendar has somehow moved from December 22 to January 9. Due to the unexplained events around her, Grace begins to have nervous breakdowns. It turns out that the children are to blame. They decided to make fun of their stepmother, but they didn't think it would be fatal for them.

Film critic Monica Castillo shares her impressions of the movie: "The House" is more disturbing than frightening, with its eerie atmosphere and creepy plot. The fears in the movie do not come from an external or supernatural force, but from the cruelty that even children can endure."

During its five-year run, The House received a 6.0 out of 10 rating on IMDb. During this time, the film grossed more than $2.5 million at the box office, and critics and audiences alike praised Riley Keough's performance. For example, Django Chang in the Los Angeles Times wrote about the actress as follows: "...the film's strongest asset is Keough, an actress who can grab and hold the screen with stunning power, but who is equally powerful in her own life."
