Storyline

In 1996, in the Balkans, the population of a small town is slaughtered by a militia under the command of the inhuman Goran that abducts young girls for prostitution in a brothel owned by the cruel Viktor. The deaf Angel that witnessed the execution of her mother has a weird birth mark on the face and Viktor chooses her to housework; to put makeup and drug the girls for the clients; and cleaning them up after the brutal encounters. Angel also sneaks between the walls and ventilation ducts during the night. Angel befriends the girl Vanya that knows the language of the deaf. When Goran returns to the house with his men, Angel witnesses one of them raping and killing Vanya and she revenges her new friend killing the man. Now Goran and his men are hunting her down and she is trapped in the house. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Surpassed my expectations
18 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

This film took me by surprise. When I went to the cinema to watch The Seasoning House, I didn't know what to expect. It was a British movie, the director's name was unfamiliar to me, the poster didn't gave me much clues except the critics seemed to like it, so basically I had no idea what I was in for. Boy was I surprised, 90 minutes well spent! The story is intriguing, based on real events that used to happen not so long ago somewhere in the Balkans, the acting is impeccable, and the cinematography is gold. This movie holds you firm in your seat as it changes gears several times throughout the story. I think it is going to be one of those movies where you either love it or hate it. Even though I am not really a horror fan, I found this movie very entertaining and would strongly recommend watching it. The horror critics seem to agree.

The world is a cruel place… and The Seasoning House has windows through which you can see it.
