Storyline

Following a messy divorce, Lynn Graham moves back home to Australia with her three American-born children in tow. Buying an old house on the same street as her sister seems like a good idea, but its low price reflects a unpleasant history of murder and satanic ritual. Before long, her two youngest kids have fallen under the spell of an evil force emanating from a sinister cubbyhouse in the back garden, and bloody past events look set to repeat themselves.

Not so Bad as the IMDb User Rating Indicates
27 October 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After a troubled divorce in the United States, Lynn Graham (Belinda McClory) returns to her hometown in Australia with her teenage son Danny (Joshua Leonard) and the children Ivan (Joshua Tainish-Biagi) and Natalie (Amy Reti) that were born in America. Lynn can only afford to buy and old house nearby her sister's home and the real state agent Bill (Craig McLachlan) omits the clause that the house should never be sold to a family with children.

Ivan and Natalie are fascinated by the wendy house in the backyard and soon they are possessed by an evil force that is trapped within the cubby house. Meanwhile Danny dates his next door neighbor Bronwyn (Lauren Hewett) and they meet the disturbed Harlow (Jerome Ehlers), whose brother Harrison has been interned in a madhouse for thirty years after slaughtering his two children in a satanic ritual. Danny has nightmares and notes that the behavior of his siblings is weird. Further, he finds that they have drawn the cubby house exactly identical to the drawing made by the diseased children.

"Cubbyhouse" is not an unforgettable or great horror B-movie. However, it is not so bad as the IMDb User Rating (2.9) indicates. The story is not original or scary and has many flaws, like for example, how could Lynn's sister ignore the past of the evil house or many characters that dies or vanish without any further consequence, but it is enjoyable. For a 2001 low-budget film, the special effects are reasonable despite the rip-off "Evil Dead" camera work. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Casa do Terror" ("House of the Terror")
