A slasher film about a victim of child abuse (Dan Grimaldi) who grows up to become a maniacal construction worker. He stalks women at discos, takes them home, then chains them up in a special steel-walled room and sets them on fire.Written by
With a synthesized musical score, chilling imagery and an intriguing perspective, Don't go in the House displayed a memorable aspect that most movies, even for its time, did not offer. It has it's flaws, most notably being a fairly strong anti-women aspect (which was more than understandable coming from the main character, but ambiguous coming from little corners of the movie), but it still does a great job of creating a surreal feeling of terror as we are treated to the 1st person perspective of an emotionally/physically scarred person. Everything else from including the mundane spoken lines fits in the movie. All the more reason as not to omit it as too misogynistic or harsh...it is a psychological HORROR movie, so the more violent or traumatizing it is, the better!
Best for the open minded horror fan and those looking for something a little different in their horror movies. 7.5 / 10
