This Netflix original movie had a promising and spooky trailer which immediately piqued my interest, but ultimately left me very disappointed. It’s strong part would be the odd, unusual main character, whose quirks make her feel more solid and real, and is very well played by Ruth Wilson. But despite how commendable the idea of a slow paced thriller is, I Am The Pretty Little Thing That Lives In The House soon goes from “slow paced” to “agonizingly plodding” by the end, trying to fill time with the sparse narrative more suited to a short film, likely the side effect of the director being more focused on pretty shots (which they are!) than what truly matters—storytelling.
