Wannabe Bad
9 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

I enjoy bad movies. I will not deny it. Especially old B horror movies. A friend of mine picked up House of Ghosts out of a dollar bin at a used bookstore in Minnesota. We thought it looked like a fun, schlocky, good time. What it ends up being is a movie that is desperately trying to recapture the magic of genre movies past. It falls flat on its face and instead we get a cheap imitation that completely misses the mark in all categories. Brutal film making. Embarrassing. I'm not a critic but I know what I like... and this, I do not like. Not worth your time. You can pick up a more entertaining movie out of a pack of 50 Horror Greats for $5.
