The run-up to Halloween just got sudsier with Home Is Where the Killer Is, Netflix's latest thriller. Released on October 9, the flick stars alumni of The Young and the Restless, Days of Our Lives, One Life to Live, and The Bold and the Beautiful.
Stacy Haiduk (Kristen, DAYS; ex-Patti, Y&R) stars as Julie Thomason, who offers to rent a room to a young woman, played by new mom Kelly Kruger (ex-Eva, B&B; ex-Mac, Y&R). Nicole Turner is recovering from intensive medical treatment, so she happily moves into Julie's home. The two become close friends, but soon Julie turns a bond into an obsession. Can Nicole escape her lethal landlady with her life?
Previously called No Place Like Home, the film also features with many other names daytime fans will recognize. Christopher Sean (ex-Paul, DAYS) appears as Nicole's ex, Kyle Hayes, with John-Paul Lavoisier (ex-Philip, DAYS; ex-Rex, OLTL) popping up as Benjamin Keane. But perhaps most poignant of all is the appearance of the late, great Kristoff St. John (ex-Neil, Y&R) as Dr. Fredericks.
Haiduk told SoapHub:
"We shot it two months before [Kristoff] passed away. That’s why his [death] was so [surreal]. It’ll be sad to see him on screen, but it will be nice[...]Never in my mind did I think [he wouldn’t be here].”
Home Is Where the Killer Is marks the directorial debut from Kaila York and also features appearances from Richard Speight Jr. (Supernatural, Kings of Con), Beth Littleford (Desperate Housewives, Spin City), Anne Leighton (Grimm, Lucifer), and Pallavi Sastry (Blue Bloods, Quantico).
