Storyline

Their relationship on the rocks, a young Brooklyn couple heads to a remote B&B to work things out. But from the moment they arrive at The Happy House it's one disaster after another, and they soon begin to suspect they've wandered into a real life horror movie. Events escalate from weird to terrifying as they contend with the house's batty owner, her imposing son, a moody Swedish lepidopterist, a pedantic English professor, an extraordinarily rare butterfly, the world's best blueberry muffins, a .44 Magnum, a demented serial killer, and one very strict rulebook. Written by Happy House

Went in expecting blood...
3 February 2015 | by jucumbaSee all my reviews

All horror films have their tropes. It's an undeniable, unavoidable truth we fanatics must hold our hands up and admit. This film does not betray this one blood stained truth, it certainly has its trope (one I don't recall having seen in a while, come to think of it). But this film plays with that idea, with cheeky winks and broad grins. I went into it expecting a trope, and throughout are hints towards all the standards. But in the 80 something minutes of this film you'll get more than tropes. I got bored half way through, having expected much more blood, and fast forwarded to see if anything actually happens. It does and it's worth a watch. This film isn't the most excited, or most emotional I have ever seen. But it has a quiet sense about itself, a sly smile and thankful attitude.

A self aware dark comedy. A simpler cousin of the Scream franchise. A pretty good soundtrack.
