In a small, Midwestern town, a killer is picking off high school students. In a sadistic twist, the maniacal murderer wears a mask resembling the victims’ faces.

Netflix released the trailer for the upcoming slasher flick, There’s Someone Inside Your House, on Monday. The new film will be the beginning of the streaming service’s 2021 Halloween season lineup and based on the same-named New York Times bestselling book by Stephanie Perkins.

The trailer introduces us to Makani Young (Sydney Park), a teenager who transfers high schools from Hawai’i to a small Nebraska town to live with her grandmother. The clip opens with Andrew Dunbar as Deputy Chris Larsson interviewing Young about the recently murdered football star Jackson Pace (Markian Tarasiuk). 

At the subsequent funeral scene, it’s revealed that the killer wore a face mask similar to Pace and is intent on exposing students’ darkest secrets before they die. As Young and her friends struggle to stay alive, it’s evident everybody has something they don’t want the world to know — drug dealing, fight clubs, and hate speech recordings included.

As the countdown to graduation begins, Young fights to keep breathing and keep her own mysterious past closed as her and her friends fight to discover the killer’s identity before they become victims themselves.
