REVIEW: "BoJack Horseman" Season 6 Part 1 is a Nuanced Lesson in Acceptance

It also originated the frequently quoted line, appearing in spoofs and countless other films: “The call is coming from inside the house!” Needless to say, when remaking the film for a 2019 audience, Sophia Takal (director and writer) and April Wolfe (writer) had big shoes to fill. And, a young horror fan, I think they did a fantastic job.
