Storyline

Young marrieds Lori and Tom relocate from Chicago to the country where they end up living next to Carl, a right-wing radical who beats his wife, Helen. When Tom goes away for a few days, Lori, with the help of best friend, Monica, investigates the disappearance of Helen. Of course, this isn't the best idea, since it involves sneaking into gun-nut Carl's house in the middle of the night. Written by Schleppy

This movie sucks big time!
4 July 2002 | by pifasSee all my reviews

This is the story: my wife and I ran into The house next door at the video rentals, she picked it up and read at the back cover that this is one thriller in the vein of Hitchcock's The rear window. We both decided to watch it not because of the so-called reference with the masterpiece of cinematographic voyeurism, but for spend a little time of relax with a movie not so complicated, just as I guessed by seeing the front cover. But, once we watched it -in two periods, because we both fell asleep-, all I could think was that this is such an insult for the Master of all suspense and thrills. This movie it´s nothing but a big fat bunch of crap! I think I've never felt so bad after watching a movie. Of any kind.

Every little thing in this so called film is horrible: the acting, the screenplay, the suspense (?), the directing, I mean, everything it´s awfully done. It´s a real pain to sit thru' this movie because we never get to feel any connection with the characters; they're as unidimensional as only a blank paper can be; all is constructed under the simplicity of the easy -and predictable- scare; the scenario, the holes in the story, the stupidity in the lead roles unable to see what's coming, and run away when there's still plenty of time. By half the movie we already knew who was who and who did that and this. Was there any enigma to solve? Nope! Maybe just to find the missing mystery, because any episode of Scooby Doo has more of it -and tension- in it´s 30 minutes, than in the 90 plus that lasts this torture titled The house next door. I still can't understand how does this kind of garbage get to be done and reach for the cinemas; bad luck we found it, but good one that we only had it for rental. Anyway, once the movie finished, I felt like going back to Blockbuster and ask for my money back.

I'm aware that the tone in this text it's one in anger, but that is because I am. But, really, if you appreciate your time or mental health, don't you even get close to this movie. No matter what the back cover says -what else could the distribution company do?-, this movie stinks!!!!!
