A young woman arrives at her grandmother's house, which used to be a funeral home, to help her turn the place into a bed-and-breakfast inn. After they open, however, guests begin disappearing or turning up dead.
A slasher film about a victim of child abuse (Dan Grimaldi) who grows up to become a maniacal construction worker. He stalks women at discos, takes them home, then hangs them upside-down in a special steel-walled room and sets them on fire. Written by
The film's original soundtrack turned out to be unusable, having been recorded on what actor Dan Grimaldi termed "less than up-to-date equipment". The soundtrack, in its entirety, had to be re-recorded and re-dubbed. See more »
Towards the end of the first burning scene, it is obvious that the fire effects are a simple overlay. See more »
With a synthesized musical score, chilling imagery and an intriguing perspective, Don't go in the House displayed a memorable aspect that most movies, even for its time, did not offer. It has it's flaws, most notably being a fairly strong anti-women aspect (which was more than understandable coming from the main character, but ambiguous coming from little corners of the movie), but it still does a great job of creating a surreal feeling of terror as we are treated to the 1st person perspective of an emotionally/physically scarred person. Everything else from including the mundane spoken lines fits in the movie. All the more reason as not to omit it as too misogynistic or harsh...it is a psychological HORROR movie, so the more violent or traumatizing it is, the better!
Best for the open minded horror fan and those looking for something a little different in their horror movies. 7.5 / 10
