Billed as a dark comedy, Netflix’s new animated film The House, comprised of three different stories, is a nightmarish and intriguing piece of creative work that will be sure to give you goosebumps.

Produced by Nexus Studios, the team behind the recent Grammy-nominated Billie Eilish concert feature, the film also boasts the vision of four different directors – Emma De Swaef, Marc James Roels, Niki Lindroth von Bahr and Paloma Baeza.

At first glance, the film seems like it could be for kids due to the doll-like quality of the characters. However, as it progresses, we get a sense of the disturbing nature of the storyline. The two-and-a-half-minute ad brilliantly encompasses the different narratives from each chapter and seamlessly introduces the interesting individuals that, at one stage, have all inhabited the house.
