‘They dreamt of a child …until he arrived.’
This Is Our Home is a 2019 American horror feature film about a struggling couple’s weekend getaway that turns into a nightmare when a child arrives in the middle of the night claiming to be their son.
Directed by Omri Dorani from a screenplay written by Rob Harmon (as Robert Harmon), the Arminius Films production stars Jeff Ayars, Drew Beckas, Riggsby Lane and Simone Policano.
“Director Omri Dorani, working from a screenplay by Rob Harmon, mines this lo-fi film for all the eeriness possible, and creates a grim atmosphere. The film runs out of steam at the end, though, including several minutes of what feels like padding things out after the climax, but there’s enough to recommend here for fans of relationship-gone-sour and stranger-in-the-house horror efforts.” Horror Fuel
“Director Dorani is no advocate for cheap scares and instant gratification […] The film experiments with screen ratios, music and sound design while generating jitters in both tiny details and a climactic sequence of visceral horror. It’s a creepy, concise piece of work.” Horror Screams Video Vault
“There’s a great deal to like about This Is Our Home. The narrative design, unsettling atmosphere, two of the performances, and the general aesthetics—Reina is studying to be a brain surgeon, which leads to a few fantastic, off-kilter moments with meat and scalpels […] But though there’s a ton of potential, it’s never realized, and the film never feels complete or fully developed.” The Last Thing I See
This Is Our Home was released on DVD and Demand in the US on December 3rd by Uncork’d Entertainment.
