    Dark House is one nutty horror movie, but what's crazier still is how well it works — until it doesn't.

    Salva manages a few inspired scenes... But the lasting image Dark House offers is of the screenwriters hurling everything they can think of at the wall.

    The overstuffed film is definitely less than the sum of its admittedly occasionally scary parts.

    The film's dialogue is knowing and the action sequences are elaborate, but not only in ways that advance the shady story toward its hokey denouement.

    Director Victor Salva tries very hard to make this seem creepy, but there’s just nothing about chatting with central heating that’s gonna prompt gooseflesh.

    Dark House practically drowns under the weight of mismatched horror tropes, including a preponderance of loud-noise jolt-scares and idiotic character behavior.

    Sadly, the only thing audiences are likely to find horrific is the acting. Or the possibility that any of these people might make another movie.
