Can you keep a secret? I haven't heard anyone for a long time until they arrived. They came for help and they broke the rules. I tried to warn them but it was too late. Little did they know. The party is over. Who will survive?

A SyFy horror movie with a punch...
Right, well initially I had very little expectations to this, being a SyFy movie and all. But still, I am an avid horror fan and I liked the movie's cover/poster, as it seemed interesting.
It turned out that "House of the Witch" was actually one of the better SyFy movies that I have seen in quite some time. Not only did they up their production game, which had a tremendous effect on the end result of the movie, but they also managed to put together a movie with a proper storyline and one that had good effects.
Granted, this is not the most original of stories. In fact, everything here has been seen elsewhere in other movies. So don't get your hopes up on originality. But still, it worked out well enough, because writer Neil Elman and director Alex Merkin individually managed to create something that had a good flow and harmony to it.
The characters in the movie were fairly average, albeit a bit on the generic side, in terms of how characters tend to be in movies such as these. Hardly memorable characters by any means, but the actors and actresses did good jobs with what they had to work with.
"House of the Witch" does have its moments in terms of being creepy and scary. However, it is not a movie that will scare the living daylights out of you. It is worth sitting down to watch it once, if you have the time and chance.
