Reviews

  • "The specificity present within IT LIVES INSIDE helps it stand out from similar horror features. Bishal Dutta‘s stunning debut feels personal yet heartbreakingly universal."
    - Sunshine State Cineplex
  • "IT LIVES INSIDE plays fairly conventionally with horror’s familiar codes and conventions, the incorporation of Hindu folklore in a story that is fundamentally built around the immigrant experience breathes new life into the otherwise hackneyed storyline."
    - AWFJ.org
  • "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."
    - Bloody Disgusting
