Trash
2 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

A struggling young family moves in to a fixer-upper house, unaware of the brutal murder committed there by the previous owner. And of course the plot thickens as the blood flows ...

I read a good review of the series, which said this was the best episode - so I gave it a lash. O.M.G. An appalling piece of trash. Very poorly written, with a story nicked from Amityville that finishes in a ludicrous rush, plus the most ham-fisted dialogue and characterisation. They even get the maths wrong in the end. The direction is barely present, with no sense of the house as a character, and the photography is dull dull dull.

The actors are OK, but they had zero to work with. And the camera lingering on the children seemed a bit creepy to me. The only thing I can praise is the music - only because it's not as bad as the rest.

Overall - just don't.
