The firefighter Chris Conley buys an isolated old house in the middle of nowhere with neither telephone nor electricity and moves with his estranged wife Maggie expecting to save their marriage and restart a new life. A few months ago, Maggie was pregnant and lost her baby of eight months when Chris pushed her during an argument. The real estate agent Rob Bradley explains that the house is split in two and Maggie and Chris will need to share the space with the tenants Mr. and Mrs. Anderson for at least one more month when the old couple will leave the house. Chris finds a job in the nearest town and leaves the unstable Maggie alone to unpack and decorate the house. Maggie overhears a telephone and weird noises in the house and soon she meets Mrs. Anderson and learns that Mr. Anderson is an abusive husband like she believes Chris is.Written by

Angus Scrimm was originally cast as Mr. Anderson before pulling out due to illness and was replaced by Terrence Evans, who pulled out also, due to a health issue weeks before principle photography was to start. Jordan Rhodes eventually played the role of Mr. Anderson. See more »
If I have to choose one genre I choose horror, and as a fan of horror I obviously Watch a lot of horror Movies. Furthermore, as a fan of horror you cannot really have high expectations in general because horror Movies are what they are.
That said, you still expect some degree of quality when you read about the plot and find it interesting, but boy was I disappointed with House of Good and Evil.
Plot: married couple relocates to the countryside trying to salvage their marriage after a tragic loss of their unborn Child.
Many horror Movies have low to medium budget and the creators succeed in various degrees to put out a nice package. This Movie has a "nice package". It is well made, has an intriguing title, decent actors. But...in the end it is quite a bore. The ending is a total disappointment and the writer, to me, probably ran out of gas or suffers from limited imagination.
The title was promising, I expected a totally different turn-out, to be frank, the turn-out was negative. I cannot really write what I expected because then I would spoil the Movie for you.
Negative is also the pacing, in the beginning the "horror" comes on too strong and a bit too early, and after those initial horrific elements they die out and are left hanging and unexplored. Some might classify this as being a red herring and thus being somewhat clever. However, I say you cannot stray too far away from your initial horror elements which should convey where the Movie is going. So...the initial build-up does not equal the ending which I also Think is boring and shows signs of bad imagination and taking the easy way out.
I still give it 4 out of 10 because it has decent actors, standard production values. Qualitywise it is like Whisher, the Unborn, Prophecy 4 & 5, although not of the same sub-genres.
