A hint of style, no substance.
3 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Even the hint of style was 'crap' style: you soon get sick of shampoo-advert beautiful young people characters with skin deep characterisation (at least I do, maybe I'm just 'old' at 44). The supposed creepiness/horror does not deliver: minimal gore, no real sense of menace despite building the house up into something that is obviously 'supposed' to be creepy. Compare this to 'Hell House', the old hammer movie with Roddy MacDowell - utterly no contest! Soon you realise that NOTHING about this movie is going to deliver. I doubt whether even the two leads (who are obviously set up to fancy each other) even get round to a good f. to alleviate the pussyfooting boredom.

The end of for me came and half an hour, when the 'heroine' comes across a bloodied corpse hanging upside down. There's a brief flurry of panic where she dashes outside to alert some police who happened to be passing by. despite being believed by no-one, she soon recovers when offered a drink by square-jawed unshaven hero. WTF?? No sane person would want to stay on in that house, and would be shaken up for ages. All credibility lost. Goodbye.

No idea what happened after that, and I totally don't care.

PS: Ha! Having read all the other reviews now, I see I was right: would have been a total waste of time to stay with it to the end: this movie does not deliver on ANY level. I was even right about predicting that the obvious sex with the 'hero' would not develop into at least a good adult scene to relieve the boredom: you get cheated even on this.

All pathetic. Give it a miss.
