"This horror film owes something to the Jason Vorhees saga and has some elements that come from the recent The Babadook".

A disastrous film. [Full Review in Spanish]

He's Out There is an entertainment for a leisure time, done with trade, but with too many cliches and common places of the genre. [Full Review in Spanish]

If at the end it's just another one of those movies, at least for a few moments He's Out There is something new and exciting.

October 17, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A compelling idea badly visualised; with some work, He's Out There could have been really special, but instead, it's too generic and muddled.

Audience Reviews for He's Out There


Yvonne Strahovski stars in the indie horror film He's Out There. The story follows a family that heads out to their lake house for a relaxing weekend, but they soon find themselves being stalked by a mysterious figure lurking in the shadows. Strahovski gives a fairly strong performance and the two child actors are pretty good as well (and being real life sisters helps). Also, director Quinn Lasher does an impressive job at building suspense and at creating an atmospheric tone. But there's not much of a plot or character development; particularly in regards to the killer, whose identity and motives are left largely unexplained. However, there is a clever use of a storybook motif that gives the film a dark fairy tale like mystique. While it's kind of a by-the-numbers home invasion film, He's Out There is well-made and delivers some chilling scares.
