Netflix viewers have been left feeling more than a little spooked out by new horror flick Our House, with some saying they're even too scared to switch off the lights at night.
Directed by Anthony Scott Burns, the film was released back in 2018 and stars Thomas Mann, Nicola Peltz, Kate Moyer and Percy Hynes White.
The 'sci-fi skin-crawler' follows three siblings in the wake of their parents' death, as the eldest creates a machine that can bring loved ones back from the dead - which, of course, always sounds like a sterling idea.
The synopsis from the film's distributor, IFC Films, says: "A machine that can bring back dead loved ones seems like a great idea... until you unleash the wrong spirits.
"When his parents are killed in a car accident, science wiz Ethan (Thomas Mann) must leave behind college and his girlfriend (Nicola Peltz) to care for his younger brother and sister. By day, he juggles the responsibilities of raising two kids; by night, he tinkers in the garage on an invention he hopes will change the world: a machine that can generate wireless electricity.
"He gets more than he bargained for, however, when the device awakens the dead souls that haunt the house. As Ethan and his siblings attempt to make contact with their parents, a horrifying realization sets in: not all the spirits in their midst may be friendly.
"This hair-raising science-fiction ghost story is a nightmare journey into a past that refuses to stay dead and buried."
Since being added to Netflix, many viewers have admitted they've found it a tense watch, with some taking to Twitter or the comments section on YouTube to warn others.
One person wrote: "Keep convincing myself there are shadow figures outside my room so am resorting to buying a night light... I'm 30."
Another added: "Our House on Netflix was a lil scarier than it had to be."
Others suggested people stick with it if they decide to watch it, saying they felt it was a bit of a slow burner.
One person wrote: "Our House on Netflix is nice lil jumpy/spooky thriller. Starts off slow, tho."
A review from movie site Looper also advised you don't turn out the lights at night, saying: "It's one of those movies that might never have found its audience if not for Netflix, and it's well worth a watch.
"If you still happen to be spending a lot of time at home, though, you might want to watch with all the lights on... and if you hear any strange noises, maybe just ignore them."
