Storyline

Based on a true story, HOUSE ON THE HILL is a true crime melodrama with strong horror elements, chronicling the outrageous 1980s murder spree of serial killer Leonard Lake, who would target, kidnap, rob and kill people -- and even whole families. Sonia, the only survivor of Lake's killing spree, teams up with a private investigator to help him locate a woman who disappeared into Lake's compound. In the process, Sonia recounts the horrors of the house, where Lake and his accomplice would force her to videotape the killings. Written by Anonymous

What a load of crap!
4 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Why does everyone with a camera and a group of friends think they can make a movie? There are some truly great "based on a true story" flicks out there with good production actors and some adherence to the true story. This is made up fluff with nothing to really draw the viewer or hold attention. Don't waste your time on something which doesn't offer any real insight into the events which happened and the horror the real people endured. The actors portraying the victim seem to be no more bothered than someone whose flight is delayed, not truly desperate. Feel bad for the lead female who is really giving her best but is trapped in a bad movie. Would have been more engrossing to document this young actresses horror at being signed on to make a terrible movie than the horror they attempt to portray. Don't waste your time!
