Ding Dong, You're Dead! The Making of House (2017)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This sixty-six minute documentary takes a look at the making of HOUSE, the 1985 horror film that became a nice little hit when it was originally released. Producer Sean S. Cunningham, director Steve Miner, story creator Fred Dekker, cast members William Katt, George Wendt and Kay Lenz, composer Harry Manfredini, stunt coordinator Kane Hodder and various members of the special effects crew are interviewed in this extremely entertaining documentary.

If you're a fan of HOUSE then you'll certainly enjoy this documentary, which does a great job at covering everything from the pre-production through the release of the film. There are some great stories told throughout this thing including how the film ended up getting made and what the original ideas were. From here we get into the casting of the picture, the shooting and then the eventual release. There are some very funny stories including Cunningham talking about how they were determined to get a R-rating even though the film really isn't all that graphic. We also get to hear about a possible reboot of the franchise. All in all, this is certainly worth watching.
