We Know You are Home review

By Eric Trigg

What happens when you don’t answer the door for trick or treaters? 

We Know You Are Home answers that question in a very chilling fashion. Directed by Andrew Robinson, the film takes place on the night of Halloween as a young house sitter is taunted by three thought to be dead ghostly figures.

Robinson effectively tells a horrifying tale by using the old-fashioned slow burn approach rather than loud noises, and random jump scares.

The final girl for this film is portrayed by Julie Landriault who gives an amazing performance.

Landriault is alone for most of the film but her facial expressions combined with the well-placed score make every moment of terror highly effective and well executed. In the early portion of the film there is a small detail that makes the narrative more coherent once the pieces start to fit in the proper spots.

Robinson also wrote the short and he executed it in the best way by letting the tension rise with each scene. We Know You Are Home is an effective short film that captures the horrors of what could happen on Halloween night.

Offering several twists along the way, great pacing, solid cinematography, and a believable final girl makes this a must see.
