Netflix Drops Trailer for ‘The House’ Stop-Motion Anthology Series

We finally get our first look at the animation from Nexus Studios’ highly-anticipated dark comedy about a house and the surreal tales surrounding people who lived there; series premieres January 14.      

Netflix has just dropped a very cool trailer (and new images you can find below) for The House, an eccentric, dark comedy anthology series directed by independent stop-motion animators Emma de Swaef, Marc Roels, Niki Lindroth von Bahr, and Paloma Baeza. Produced by BAFTA award-winning Nexus Studios (This Way UpBack to The Moon), the show centers on a house and three surreal tales of the individuals who made it their home. The show premieres on the streamer January 14, 2022.

The anthology is told in 3 chapters:

Story 1 – Set in the 1800s, impoverished Raymond meets a mysterious benefactor who promises to restore both him and his family to their former status. The family soon learns that wants and desires may not always lead you where you expect. (Directed by Roels & de Swaef).

Story 2 - Set in the present day, a harassed property developer tries to make a quick sale from a renovation. However, some eerie unexpected guests have other plans and become the catalyst to a more personal transformation. (Directed by von Bahr).

Story 3 - Set in the near future, the house survives a hugely changed landscape. We meet Rosa, a young landlady determined to stay in her beloved crumbling house and restore it to its former glory. But Rosa’s unrealistic vision has blinded her to the inevitable change that is coming and to what matters most. (Directed by Baeza).
