“I think the movie will be exciting to people who like to watch something where you don't know where it's leading you, where a film is going to have twists and turns and deceive you,” he said.

“People who like things that are intense and visceral and suspenseful, I think they'll find something exciting in this. I didn't want to make something that felt cold and clinical and sterile. I wanted to make something that felt alive and warm and relatable and human,” he added.

Reptile will premiere at TIFF on September 7, before being released on Netflix on October 6.
