Toronto After Dark Review: ‘The Inhabitant’

October 24, 2018Sherry Li

The Inhabitant, from director and writer Guillermo Amoedo, is a tense and unforgettable film that is bound to put this Chilean horror on everyone's radar.

The movie follows three sisters who decide to rob a senator after receiving a tip about bribe money hidden in his home. While there, they discover his daughter, tied up in the basement, and they bring her upstairs. But what they don't realize is that she's tied up for a reason — she's possessed — and they've made themselves a target.

With plenty of twists, The Inhabitant is a terrifying ride all the way through. The film is fantastically paced and is filled with haunting performances from the cast, particularly from María Evoli, who plays Maria, one of the sisters, and Natasha Cubria, who plays Tamara, the young girl who is possessed. It's a well-crafted piece of horror that will definitely stand out for fans of the genre.

The Inhabitant makes its North American premiere at the 2018 Toronto After Dark Film Festival. Its runtime is 1 hr. 33 min.
