It's a film that shows the horror of being a refugee, with the guilt of the past and the fear of losing oneself when we are forced to assimilate into a new world and culture.

Well-written, superbly directed and acted, and most of all, pretty damn scary.
June 8, 2021
A multi-layered British-set haunted house film that skillfully weaves socio-political commentary, an engrossing character study, and unnerving visual frights ...

A sterling example of the power that diverse voices in front of and behind the camera hold in expanding the [horror] genre's horizons.

First-time director Remi Weekes serves up plenty jump scares, but his real-world terrors are much more frightening.
March 24, 2021
Both visually and narratively imaginative, the film's most impressive attribute is the fact that, despite the ghoulish happenings, it never loses sight of the stories that inspired it.
March 20, 2021
His House artistically commemorates the tens of thousands of people who have gone to watery graves escaping unbearable conditions in Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere.

His House is an extraordinary haunted-house film, and also an excellent horror film in the genre, "Is she crazy?"

His House uses the supernatural to examine guilt, trauma, masculinity, and how outsiders assimilate into new cultures.
February 26, 2021
While a little too on the nose with its metaphors along with a dreadful procurement that would have used a little more scope, the film serves as a strangely accurate portrayal of going through the refugee experience.
February 25, 2021
Despite its failings, the film is worth watching for the good work from its two leads, and because there are some sorts of horror that don't get talked about nearly as much as they should.
February 14, 2021
There's an artistic touch to His House that should not go without mention.
February 12, 2021
The film is a superb horror that reflects on the psychological scar a war perpetuates on its victims and those impossible choices that they are forced to make.
February 2, 2021
It's a strong debut by Weekes and nails the essential part of a horror movie: the horror.
February 2, 2021
The film has much to say about grief, guilt, assimilation and the on-going refugee crisis. And on top of all that, it's also a nifty nerve-jangler.
February 2, 2021
His House is a terrifying debut that breathes a fresh voice into the haunted-house subgenre.
January 29, 2021
Moves the tired, old haunted house horror story to new, deeply felt places. It may drag in spots, but His House is a thrilling rethink of what the genre can be.
January 29, 2021
The movie's acting is effective, but the story's real impact comes from the lingering feeling that people can move to different places, but they can't really escape from emotional baggage ... [The movie is] also a blistering meditation on trauma.
January 27, 2021
The twist, when it comes, feels simultaneously inevitable and devastating, while the coda accesses a hard-earned ambivalence about what it means to make a house a home...
January 26, 2021
His House is a breath of fresh air and exemplifies the diversity of stories that are still waiting to be told.
