This film was better the second time round... 6.2/10 ۞
I watched 'Aaron's House' last year and wasn't overly impressed, but when I got the chance to watch it again, and decided to look into the making of it, I found it to be rather entertaining. 'Aaron's House' will never win awards and there were some things I would have liked the director to have done differently, like lighting and sound, for example, but as a micro-budget B-movie, and viewing it in a different light, I found myself enjoying it far more the second time.
The acting isn't spectacular or anything and the effects could've been tweaked a bit more, but you have to take into account this film was made for next to nothing, and as such, was not too bad at all.
The first time I watched 'Aaron's House' I thought the lead character to be too wacky for my tastes, but seeing it again, and just watching his style, I found it to be quite amusing, and it was clear the cast were simply having fun making the film, which actually comes across well.
It's far from a perfect film and you can clearly see the budget wasn't there, but you'll also see passion and an honest attempt at creating an entertaining film, unlike so many others that are made for the sole purpose of making money with no integrity from the filmmaker, so, if you're willing to ignore the lack of budget, and look deeper into the film itself, 'Aaron's House' is worth a gander, and at a mere 2 bucks to rent on Amazon (that's where I hired it), you can hardly go wrong.
