User Reviews

A hybrid between romantic comedy and slasher film
28 July 2015 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a furniture salesman who seems to have the perfect suburban life. He has an affair with an employee, and his life and his wife goes awfully wrong.

I thought "Home Sweet Hell" was a romantic comedy, but it turns out it's actually a new hybrid of romantic comedy slasher! Katherine Heigl plays an obsessional turns psychopathic wife, breaking her run as the new queen of romantic comedy. She looks so different from her other films, she conveys the stone cold and ruthless attitude required for the role. Patrick Wilson is great as a helpless husband. The whole film is quite funny, despite some gruesome scenes not typically in a romantic comedy. Overall, I enjoyed watching "Home Sweet Hell".
