The Houses October Built 2: A real letdown
24 May 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Though the first movie was hardly spectacular it was original and certainly memorable. It told the story of a group of friends who went on a road trip to various "Halloween horror houses". Basically horror attractions, which really do exist and I find fascinating.

Their adventure ended badly last time but here they have picked themselves up, dusted themselves off and are doing it again.

Now last time it was a successful slow build, this time it's a very slow build with no real payoff. What I mean by that is the movie is presented in a documentary form and remains like that for 9/10 of the film so very little actually happens. If you're interested in these horror haunts however you'll have a blast as they are the real thing including the Zombie Pub Crawl and Zombie Run which are annual events.

The movie does have a fantastic twist but I think it was handled very poorly. Top that off with the distinct lack of actual movie content and I found this to be a huge let down. I went in with expectations and they simply weren't met.

Once again it has a real charm and is very original, but just doesn't entertain like it should have. I'd love to see a third and final part to meet its potential and finish the story.

The Good:

Great idea

Very original

The Bad:

Some weird cinematography choices

The behaviour of the characters is simply not believable

More a faux documentary than an actual movie

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

I'd love to do a roadtrip of these things!
