Now Goran and his men are hunting her down and she is trapped in the house.Written by

The Seasoning House was the highlight of the Fantasy Filmfest in Berlin. The movie has excellent cinematography, brilliant acting, and the house really brought out the compelling and twisted story line.
This is not a pure horror but more of a revenge thriller and the story is based on true events, which actually makes the movie even more terrifying. Needless to say Paul Hyett delivers the scenes where blood was spilled so realistically that you can nearly feel the pain.
The acting alone is worth a watch. Rosie Day, Kevin Howarth, and of course Sean Pertwee give amazing performances. The energy among these guys just couldn't be better.
All in all the movie has it all, and in my opinion is a must see. Do yourself a favor and go see it, you won't regret it. It's coming soon in the cinemas.
