Best Horror Movies on Netflix: I See You (2019)
- Directed by: Adam Randall
- With: Helen Hunt, Jon Tenney, Owen Teague, Libe Barer and Judah Lewis
Released in 2019, I see you flew under the radar but has recently seen a resurgence in popularity thanks to the film’s inclusion on Netflix. A gripping psychological thriller I see you follows a family struggling with the fallout of infidelity. When a young boy goes missing, Detective Greg Harper sees chilling similarities between the recent kidnapping and a previous series of murders.
But he’s also struggling to reconcile his wife’s recent affair, the aftermath of which can still be seen at home daily as their son Connor grows resentful that his mother cheated on his father.
To make matters worse, back home a malevolent presence begins to torment the family in their home, apparently targeting Connor. But how does this relate to recent kidnappings and the past? The answer will shock you.
The best way to watch this movie is to dwell on it as little as possible. As such, I even recommend skipping the trailer above if you want the absolute best viewing experience I see you. I have kept the plot description as vague as possible. Trust me; there are lots of surprises!
