The terror in His House did not come arbitrarily from one side only. In this Netflix film, terror can be found from the past and the future at the same time, making horror in the film quite gripping. Remi Weekes, in his first film as a director, ensures that the intensity of the story never dies down and always increases as the scene runs smoothly and the story creeps through the viewer's body.
Rial (Wunmi Mosaku) and Bol (Sope Dirisu) are a pair of refugees who fled from South Sudan because of the war and now ended up in England after the ship they were traveling in was in the middle of the sea. Even though they survived, unfortunately their daughter died in that incident.

Bol quickly tries to mingle with the surrounding community where he sings about footballer Peter Crouch at a bar, and tells Rial to speak English while arguing, while Rial still sticks to his customs. Even when eating we see the difference where Rial eats by hand while Bol uses cutlery, although he still looks unfamiliar.
But the biggest issue for the two of them is not how fast they will adapt, but how they will face the future in their new life with their very dark past. Ironically, they lost their daughter to survive and fled their country. Losing their daughter also ended up haunting the two of them in their new home. And the haunting that I say haunts not only their hearts, but actually haunts them with strange events that happen in the house.
