‘The darkest threat comes from within’

The Thing Inside Us is a 2021 science fiction horror film about a couple trying to cope with the after-effects of a pandemic.

Daniel and Shelly have lost everything to the LV pandemic that has currently engulfed the world. Most show no symptoms of the disease, but Daniel barely survived the infection. Shelly seems fine except for a strange case of sleepwalking. The doctors can’t help her, so Daniel decides to document his wife’s illness for evidence. What he finds could not only destroy his relationship but the world itself…


” …in the last half-hour, The Thing Inside Us lets us know what’s really going on, and it pulls it off fairly well, give or take a few moments that feel rushed and one really bad performance. It might have worked better if the script had introduced these elements a bit sooner, especially since the film’s poster ruins the surprise.” Voices from the Balcony
