Release Year: 2016

This movie is a Netflix Original movie, an area where Netflix is really trying to grow in the coming years. I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 10 and premiered on Netflix on Oct. 28. This movie is a combination of a ghost story and haunted house story. Combining those two classic elements of horror movies made for a good watch.

Iris Blum (Prentiss) is an old author who is confined to her home and bedridden. Her estate manager Mr. Waxcap (Balaban) hires Lily (Wilson) to serve as a live-in nurse in the old estate. Iris used to be a horror novelist and Lily begins to suspect that her most famous piece of literature was actually a true story and that the grisly murder in the novel actually took place inside the home she now lives.
