The most unassuming spoof you'll ever see.
15 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Highly entertaining. This is probably the best horror spoof i've ever seen, it hits every cliché right on the head, perfectly. It's funny, i mean, seriously funny, from the intentionally poorly acted scenes of the innocent daughter and controlling over protective parents, to the bitchy backstabbing friend. The Open Door is good solid fun right from the start. The imagery used in some of the jump scares, not only did their job in making me jump out of my seat, but had me laughing my ass off after i realized what i just freaked out over (watch out for a mannequin head turn transsexual). This would be a great movie to watch with some friends over many a beer! It never stoops into the outright silliness of Scary movie, it actually takes on a silent seriousness to it, and strangely, somehow, keeps you invested in the lead character.

This film is just fun from start to finish. Rent it now!
