There have been some very positive reviews written here on the House of Good and Evil. I'm really wondering were they watching the same movie or merely part of the production crew. I watched the movie off the back of these reviews and any score over 5 on IMDb is in my opinion worth a try. All this I unfortunately found misleading. This psychological thriller is low on thrills and even less on horror. It was a tall order for the lead actress who is in just about every shot in the movie and I can't say I warmed to the character, who was a difficult character anyway must to the chagrin of my girlfriend who also watched eyes rolling regularly. The rest of the cast were not bad, the old lady was excellent, however there was not too much to go on. As the story panned out to the end I was disappointed to find a twist similar to a British movie I watched but days ago, and it was done better in that movie. I'm afraid it just didn't all add up in the House of Good and Evil and I still don't see the relevance of the name.
