An entertaining slasher film, GirlHouse was probably made for a small budget but you can't tell as it is well shot/produced with decent enough acting by all involved. Ali Cobrin is very likable as the requisite "Final Girl" and there is actually a well-executed romantic subplot between Cobrin and a childhood friend that elevates the film, giving it another dimension beyond the killer slashing his way through the cast. Loverboy is effectively creepy with his pull on mask with it's female face and long hair. He reminds me somewhat of Frank Zito in Maniac as far as how crazy he is. There are some effective scares and creepy atmosphere going on and some of the effects are really well done, even though it's not a gore fest it has it's gory moments. Some of the deaths are really creative. I enjoyed it much more than I expected and I would recommend it to slasher film lovers.
