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.

House of err...
25 November 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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.
