  • Summary: When their car leaves them stranded on the side of a rural road, Jack and Stephanie Singleton seek refuge in an old bed-and-breakfast where they find another couple in the same situation. Soon, the four discover that the creepy owners of this old house know more about them than they should. Slowly, their darkest secrets and deepest fears begin to unfold around them. They try to escape, but a madman waits for them outside; he forces them back into the house and into his game. They have until dawn to give him one dead body. (Namesake Entertainment) Expand

    The central problem here is one common to faith-based films: The heroes (Reynaldo Rosales and Heidi Dippold) are both overly bland and poorly cast.

    House has a few moments that ring genuinely eerie, but the cluttered, unconvincing dialogue – not to mention Moseley's ongoing penchant for crazed overacting – make it more of a genre curiousity than anything the "Fangoria" gang would likely want to sit through.
  3. The backstories keep piling up, with nods to "The Shining," "The Ring," and a dozen other gothic supernatural chillers, yet the result doesn't remotely scare you.
  4. As ineptly directed by Robby Henson, the violent (but not too graphically so) goings-on are largely incoherent, with matters not helped by subpar performances, laughably inane dialogue and cheap CGI effects.

    I like horror movies! I really do! Especially if the setting was in an abandoned house like HOUSE! House is the new horror movie that takes place in a town like Silent Hill but with no Silent Hill, the movie focuses on House which is possessed by "The Tin Man" the movie is good, the pacing good, acting good, but all in all, not a great movie, the horror and terror sequences would've been more terrifying, over all it is a good time, but not worth the money, so check it out on the Internet, or wait for the DVD. I would say, 7 out of 10 would be more than enough, 7 only for the plot. Expand

    A plodding nightmare that will have you ripping your hair out long before the credits roll. After 45 completely uneventful minutes the "action" begins when four whiny idiots get chased around an old hotel by... something. Then some confusing and under-explained things happen. Then yadda yadda, screaming, sweating, devil worship, yadda yadda... Then fallen actor Michael Madsen (who somehow has top billing despite 10ish minutes of screen time) reappears with 7-8 minutes left to phone in a few lines and die. Oh and apparently everyone died in the first fifteen minutes and this is hell... or something. A well thought-out narrative this is not. Expand
