Premiere Date

On January 27, 2020, it premiered worldwide at the Sundance Film Festival, and before that, it was awarded distribution rights to films.


The company Starchild Photographs, managed by producers Ed King and Martin Gentles, developed his house. Remi Weekes had reportedly directed a movie from a screenplay he wrote in August 2017. Starchild Pictures has been brought by the Weinstein Company on charges that the company has rejected an unsigned distribution agreement. 

It was announced in March 2018 that Wunmi Mosaku, Sope Dirisu had joined the film, that the prosecution did not continue and that The Weinstein Company had ceased to join. The financing and production were established for New Regency Pictures, The BBC Films, and Vertigo Entertainment, Matt Smith joined the film’s cast in May 2018.

Reception of the film

His House is a harrowing but inspiringly creative film debut for Remi Weekes, the writer-director of England, which blends classic scary movie tropes with a deeper horror from real-world conflict areas. This prompt story about a couple married to the South of Sudan (played affected by Wunmy Mosaku and Sope Dirisu) who coped with grief after re-establishment in the UK could reach a fairly large audience if properly pushed by the platform. Available from Netflix during its Sundance debut. The way in which the film sees race and cultural displacedness in a genre mesh is likely to make comparisons with Jordan Peele. However, while the analogy is comprehensible, the value of His House is unique, specific to the British and African environments in which the Story unfolds.

In which the films by Peele link their horrors to the original sin of slavery, racism, and the class in America, Weekes is more engaging in the legacies of tribalism, of the guilt of survivors, and the psychological scars created by Genocidal atrocities, based on a story by Felicity Evans and Toby Venables.
