Let's be honest, as soon as we read the words 'Netflix', 'thriller' and 'Blake Lively' we were sold, and all that was before finding out the story is based on a very creepy Reddit thread. The streamer's new project, We Used to Live Here is already getting people very excited since it was announced, and even more so now that A Simple Favour star Blake Lively is attached to star and produce. Here's everything we know about We Used to Live Here.

What's We Used to Live Here about?

The film is based on a psychological thriller novella by Marcus Kliewer, which was posted the nosleep subreddit where Reddit users share their own scary stories. The eerie story follows a young couple who have just moved into their dream house on a quiet suburban street. One day, while her partner is at work, one of the homeowners is visited by a family who say they used to live at the house and ask to look around. Things steadily get creepier until eventually a snowstorm hits and traps the family in the house, and here's when things start to get really odd.

Who will star in We Used to Live Here?

At the moment, all we know is that Gossip Girl star and Twitter legend Blake Lively is set to star in and produce the project, alongside Hustlers production executive Kate Vorhoff, through Lively's production company B for Effort.
