MATT Smith stars Netflix's new horror, His House, alongside rising stars Sope Dirisu and Wunmi Mosaku.
The former Doctor Who plays the burnt out case worked of South Sudanese refugees Bol (Dirisu) and Rial (Mosaku) as they try to make a new start in England.
Dirisu (Gangs of London) and Mosaku (Luther, Lovecraft Country) play the young refugee couple who makes a harrowing escape from war-torn South Sudan.
But then they struggle to adjust to their new life in a small English town that has an evil lurking beneath the surface.
The film which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival has found a home on Netflix and will premiere next month on the streaming giant.
Smith plays Bol and Rial's refugee case work who helps them move into a dilapidated council house.
The couple try to make the most of the dirty and smelly place saying they have a chance for a fresh start, "we will be new here", they say.
As they try to get their British citizenship they can't not ignore the growing horrors that happens to each of them in their new home, including seeing their dead child haunt them in a twisted ghost form.
First-time feature director, Remi Weekes, takes the helm of this shocking horror and wanted to show the pressures new immigrants face.
But he also does not want the political message to take over the entire film.
"Making this film I wanted to step away from these social commentaries and move into a space more psychological, emotional and personal," he told Collider.
"I wanted the focus of the film to be introspective, about them, rather than any larger commentary.
"The conversations within the film are the conversations that I grew up hearing, as had by my family, my friends and the people that moved in and out of my life."
His House premiered on Netflix globally on October 30.
