Wickedly Funny
12 September 2012 | by generaldissarray12See all my reviews

This dark little jewel of a film is cleverly written and produced, the soundtrack is elegantly understated yet unsettling, the photography is beautiful, even the art direction and costume design(along with the set decor-is the horror memorabilia Paul's, or is it Reece's?)is sly. "Him Indoors" feels classic without being derivative, and highly original among so many full-length films that rely on hackneyed plots and scare tactics. The career of writer/director, Paul Davis, is definitely worth watching if he can accomplish this much with a small budget and a short window of production time. This film had me laughing and cringing simultaneously, thanks to the wonderful performances of the actors. Pollyanna McIntosh shines as Gregory's kooky, flirtatious neighbor, and Reece Shearsmith is just an amazing actor-he owns this role. He's chilling yet endearing, he's so mild-mannered and charming, but he manages to make your skin crawl; he makes a lovely monster. The whole film is wickedly funny, but it will remind you that monsters don't always look scary, and they might live next door...
