Storyline

Jane heads to the country in search of a new life. Her car breaks down in a small town, and in the local diner where she takes refuge is offered a lift to make her appointment to see an old house she wants to fix up. Jane and Lyle ride out to the house, and become friendly, until reaching their destination. Lyle ties Jane up and leaves her in the house, where a waitress from the diner returns later and reveals her dark, supernatural secret. The town is a trap and all the locals are in on a scheme to lure people out to the house and use them to propel their thirst for new life. Written by John Faust

Creepy...
2 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film has a surreal and creepy feel to it. The acting and directing really added to the story. The sound and music worked well, the lighting was a little dark, but I guess you want a film like this to be dark. This film isn't the normal short horror, it has quality production value and doesn't fall prey to the common horror clichés, which makes By Appointment Only refreshing (as refreshing as horror can be.) I can see this film being picked up by a studio and made into a feature length production. The leading actor is quite sexy and I look forward to seeing her in other films. There is something about this film that still haunts me, so I guess that makes is a successful horror film, right?
