Storyline

The firefighter Chris Conley buys an isolated old house in the middle of nowhere with neither telephone nor electricity and moves with his estranged wife Maggie expecting to save their marriage and restart a new life. A few months ago, Maggie was pregnant and lost her baby of eight months when Chris pushed her during an argument. The real estate agent Rob Bradley explains that the house is split in two and Maggie and Chris will need to share the space with the tenants Mr. and Mrs. Anderson for at least one more month when the old couple will leave the house. Chris finds a job in the nearest town and leaves the unstable Maggie alone to unpack and decorate the house. Maggie overhears a telephone and weird noises in the house and soon she meets Mrs. Anderson and learns that Mr. Anderson is an abusive husband like she believes Chris is.

The Process of Madness
4 January 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The firefighter Chris Conley (Christian Oliver) buys an isolated old house in the middle of nowhere with neither telephone nor electricity and moves with his estranged wife Maggie (Rachel Marie Lewis) expecting to save their marriage and restart a new life. A few months ago, Maggie was pregnant and lost her baby of eight months when Chris pushed her during an argument. The real estate agent Rob Bradley (Rob Neukirch) explains that the house is split in two and Maggie and Chris will need to share the space with the tenants Mr. and Mrs. Anderson (Jordan Rhodes and Marietta Marich) for at least one more month when the old couple will leave the house.

Chris finds a job in the nearest town and leaves the unstable Maggie alone to unpack and decorate the house. Maggie overhears a telephone and weird noises in the house and soon she meets Mrs. Anderson and learns that Mr. Anderson is an abusive husband like she believes Chris is.

"House of Good and Evil" is a low-budget movie showing the process of madness developed in slow pace and a predictable conclusion. The development of the relationship between Maggie and Chris in the beginning is weak and the madness process of Maggie is obvious. The story takes place in the present days and it is weird that an urban couple moves to a decrepit house without the modern facilities – electric power, telephone, Internet and gas - to begin a new life with the husband needing to travel and leave his wife alone. Last but not the least, I had great expectations with this movie since it has been recommended by a friend of mine and probably it increased my deception. My vote is five.
