This ain't no bed and breakfast!
3 November 1999 | by (Allentown, PA) – See all my reviews

"Killers in the House" is a cool suspense flick that blends elements of films directed by Alfred Hitchcock and Don Siegel. It has the tones of a horror-suspense flick with the raw cops and robbers movie. Mario Van Peebles plays Rodney, a family man who with his wife Jennie (Holly R. Pete) and their son get trapped in an old Victoria house by a group of slimeball bank-robbers led by the ultra-sleazy character actor Andrew Divoff. What follows is a break-neck chase between our heroes and the money-hungry scumbags.
