Watch Trailer

"A fun, skin-crawling horror flick with a satisfyingly chilling conclusion. I can’t wait to see what Dutta comes up with next."

— Julia Glassman, The Mary Sue

"It Lives Inside is carried by innovative horror imagery, a well-constructed script and great central performances that hold the emotional heart of the story."

— Lucas Trevor, Washington Post

"A creepy monster movie with a culturally specific iconography that feels refreshing for sparing audiences another exorcism sequence laden with crucifixes and holy water."

— Brian Eggert, Deep Focus Review

"One of the better PG-13 horrors of late, it ekes sufficient menace from the familiar story gist of a consuming demonic presence passed from one beleaguered victim to another."

— Dennis Harvey, Variety

"It Lives Inside is a superior thriller and a promising debut for Dutta and Mehta. It’s also a reminder that a horror film can have something to say without being preachy, and intelligent without being dull and elevated."

— Jim Morazzini, Voices From The Balcony

"Dutta uses a familiar framework of teen horror as an accessible introduction to underexplored mythology exacerbated by a cultural divide. The gnarly new demon and the complexities of the characters mark this director as one to watch."

— Meagan Navarro, Bloody Disgusting

"Dutta’s screenplay expertly blends the lived reality of Indian immigrants with the classic structure of a summer horror flick. The character of Samidha is simultaneously specific and universal. Anyone who has struggled to find friends and maintain connections through their teen years will be able to relate to her story."

— Lucas Trevor, Washington Post

"Horror wears a terrifying new face in It Lives Inside, the first feature from writer-director Bishal Dutta, as well as several of the producers of Get Out. Taking the extremely familiar formula of a group of teenagers being stalked by a sadistic supernatural force, Dutta breathes new life into this concept by Babadooking it up. Instead of grief being manifested into a monster, an Indian American teenager’s assimilation spawns a new horror icon in the making."
