I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House :- Watch I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House on Youtube on Fire,Oz Perkins asks for what too few modern horror filmmakers do: patience. I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House is, at times, as laborious as its title implies, filled with long, sustained silences and ponderous pontifications with opaque implications. What props the film up is Perkins’ masterful command of atmosphere. As in his previous feature The Blackcoat’s Daughter, a festival favorite from last year that still hasn’t seen a wide release, I Am the Pretty Thing thrives on texture and mood, even as it falters in terms of storytelling. And story is in short supply. What we have is a house, stark, simple, and trapped in a bygone era, and a hospice nurse, Lily (Ruth Wilson), who’s been sent to care for an elderly horror author, Iris (Paula Prentiss), during her last days. It isn’t long before Lucy is unsettled; the house seems to be rotting from the inside, Iris will only call her Polly, and a cursory glance through Iris’ literary output raises innumerable goosebumps. As Lily inches closer to the “Polly” Iris speaks of, she further awakens the spirits that call the house their home. The tropes are there; these are aspects of countless ghost stories. But Perkins isn’t interested in adhering to them, nor in subverting them. What he wants to capture is a feeling, an anxious dread. As in The Blackcoat’s Daughter, Perkins is drawn to the spectre that’s just out of sight, the shape in the darkness that we can’t quite make out. Fading, translucent figures manifest through blurred eyesight, their faces distorted and actions indecipherable. And then there’s the doorways. Nobody, except perhaps David Lynch, is as drawn to the darkness that lies beyond an empty doorway more than Perkins.
