Netflix users concerned about removal of original horror film His House

Netflix users are concerned after the removal of fan-favourite original horror film His House from the streaming service.

The Netflix original is set to leave the platform in the UK on 29 October, so you might be able to squeeze it in before Halloween.

His House follows a young couple who seek asylum in the UK after leaving war-torn South Sudan.

However, when they move into their new home, they begin to be tormented by an unknown evil.

According to Netflix's Help Center, it is pretty common for Netflix to take down shows depending on their popularity running low to make room for brand new shows.

The streaming giant also have to consider licensing agreements that might lead to a film or tv series being removed if their rights to a title expires.

However, the removal of His House has come as a disappointment to many viewers, as in September, fellow Netflix Original Hemlock Grove was also confirmed to be removed this month - with the TV series being one of the first Originals on the streaming platform.

Fans have taken to social media to discuss His House's departure from Netflix.

One person said: "Please please watch HIS HOUSE before it's removed from Netflix. I'll never forget how I felt the first time I watched it. It terrified me, disturbed me, moved me to tears. If you love horror and love great movies, watch it. This gem can't just disappear."

A second added: "Somebody kindly explain to me why HIS HOUSE is being removed from Netflix. It's a bloody Netflix original, for crying out loud! There's no other official means of watching it!"

A third had massive praise for the film: The best horror movie I’ve watched so far this year is His House (Netflix). Creepy supernatural stuff with a truly compelling, sad story and characters you actually care about. Highly recommend."

While His House is listed as an original, the film was actually co-produced with BBC Films and New Regency.

However, when the film is dropped from Netflix on 29 October, it will be premiering the same night on BBC Two as part of the channel's British Film Premiere season before becoming available on BBC iPlayer.

As reported by The Independent, the BBC said: “We (BBC Film) invested in the production of HIS HOUSE alongside New Regency and are thrilled to be part of Remi’s fantastic debut feature - Netflix acquired it just before its premiere at Sundance in 2020. As part of our investment, we obviously carve out the BBC’s TV and iPlayer rights to ensure BBC audiences get to enjoy our films and we’re excited to bring it to our audiences in time for Halloween.”

And so rest assured, it will not go into midst of time after it leaves Netflix.
