Fantastic for what it is!
31 May 2019 | by Motopsycho2See all my reviews

I got to see this movie during the Seattle International Film Festival. I had no idea what to expect since this movie didn't even have a trailer yet. My expectations were low but I was pleasantly surprised.

The whole haunted house plot has been done countless times before but the execution is so perfect that gives the movie a sense of originality. Also this movie is genuinely funny! My theater burst into laughter many times and there are lot of memorable lines in the script. The great pacing is one of the main factors that makes this movie quite entertaining from start to finish.

I don't know who Tony West is but this debut feature shows he has potential and I'll be interested to watch his next movie. I only knew Chris Geere out of the cast beforehand but everyone does an exceptional job in performing.

Plot: 5/10 Screenplay and dialogue: 8/10 Acting: 8/10 Cinematography: 7/10 Effects: 7/10 Pacing: 9/10 Overall: 7.3/10 - Highly Recommended!
