REVIEWS FOR THE INHABITANT
...there’s a lot more finesse here in the telling of the backstory...and a sense of menace lurking around every corner in the bland suburban setting; together it evokes indie “elevated horror” features such as It Follows.
Writer Kevin Bachar and director Jerren Lauder have made a film that transcends genre and finds a way to layer psychology, teen angst, and family drama into the fright.
"The Inhabitant" is clever horror movie that also leans into teen angst and family drama. It’s a sophisticated murder mystery where the body count isn’t increasing for no reason in this psychological horror film that is as intelligent as it is scary.
