Just in time for this weekend's Halloween celebrations, the streaming service's latest offering, which follows a refugee couple making a harrowing escape from war-torn South Sudan to the UK, has a sinister twist.
The film follows the young couple, Rial and Bol, as they relocate and struggle to adjust to their new life in an English town that has an evil lurking behind the surface.
The film's synopsis reads: "As a young couple from war-torn South Sudan seeks asylum and a fresh start in England, they're tormented by a sinister force living in their new home."
A recent Tweet teased: "His House is exactly the kind of horror movie you've been waiting for. Now on Netflix."
Starring Wunmi Mosaku (Temple) and Gangs of London's Sope Dirisu as couple Rial and Bol, plus former Dr Who actor Matt Smith, it's got a stellar cast.
The film, written and directed by Remi Weekes, has been adapted from a story by Felicity Evans and Toby Venables.
"It'll be nice. You'll be happy," Smith's character tells the couple in the trailer. "As long as you can get along. Fit in. Be one of the good ones."
Cue a series of creepy interactions, an ominous hole in the wall and things moving of their own accord.
That's not to mention the footsteps, holes in the ceiling and movements in the attic the couple also experience in their new home.
"I saw something in the dark," Rial explains in the short clip.
And quite frankly we're terrified!
But when Smith's character, a housing officer, gets involved, he questions what the couple actually saw.
"You have problems with the property?" he asks Bol.
"This is what they want," Rial explains. "They like to see us crazy."
And it certainly leaves us wanting more. Lining this one up for Saturday night!
His House is now available to stream on Netflix.
