Storyline

Jean just quit her coveted job as an investment banker on Wall Street. After a soul-searching journey traveling around the world, she retreats to an empty vacation home owned by a friend's rich family. She unexpectedly finds herself sharing the place with some former occupants - a cynical college professor, his bitter sister married to a devoted husband, a disgruntled cab driver and a washed-up drifter; all of whom are not even supposed to be there, because they're actually dead. As Jean reluctantly confronts these souls as tormented as herself, they inevitably end up in an entangled mass of secrets and lies - This imaginative thriller roams in and out of the lives of lost souls, weaving reality with the other side.

The House: Quite the surprise
12 November 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Where I watched this it was advertised as a horror, let's be clear straight off the bat that it really really isn't. I guess I'd refer to it as a supernatural thriller.

A woman quits her job and takes a holiday living in the luxurious glass house owned by a friends family. Quickly odd things begin to happen around the house and she learns she isn't alone.

Ghosts? Absolutely, but not things that go bump in the night. We instead have 4 ghosts confused about the position they are in and tormented by their own personal issues. So instead of screaming we have talking, and lots of it.

Competent cast and very interesting premise makes The House a very memorable and unique film. I was gripped and hugely surprised with what I was watching as I simply didn't expect it.

Interesting, well written and unlike anything I've seen before.

Sadly it fails to meet its potential due to several unanswered questions and a couple of completely unnecessary plot points.

Regardless this little movie is worth the time of anyone seeking something different.

The Good:

Great cast

Highly original

The Bad:

Few plot holes and/or unneeded plot points

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Ming Na Wen has a twin

Ghost logistics in some films just confuse the crap out of me

All cleaners in America are Mexican

People who walk on Wall Street are evil incarnate
