Storyline

Charlie, a young ambitious property agent joins a successful agency run by wealthy couple, Gordon and Lucy. He soon learns the secrets behind the agency's success; they specialise in buying up dirt cheap properties after someone has died or been murdered in them, sells them at a higher price without disclosing to the new owners the horrifying truth. Ethical dilemmas soon subside as Charlie enjoys the windfall he makes from every sale. Charlie shrugs off buyers who complain about supernatural happenings and the nightmare they have to endure and continues to basks in his opulent lifestyle. It was not until one of his clients succumbs to the tragic hauntings that he decides to reveal the horrible secrets of his agency. Written by Naveen Prakash

If real estate agents were 100% honest with us.

Buyer Beware looks like an amalgamation of horror tropes, however, unlike a parody\satire - this movie actually tries to make something out of these tropes. It doesn't have great CGI, or outstanding actors... or even particularly scary scenes. But, to me, it was still entertaining, I was interested in how it would all resolve, even if it was somewhat predictable. Probably most of all I liked the idea, enough to want to see a sequel, because the setting is there. It could easily rival current mainstream Hollywood jump-scare fests. Mainly because, unlike those jump-scare fests that have nothing in common, the idea about real-world hauntings and their... ehm... application - is something new. Mostly we see one-off movies focused on a particular subject. And, as much as they try to franchise it - they end up one-off with only CGI to save them(and, sometimes, the actors). This budget picture doesn't need either. Sometimes you see a horror and it doesn't work out, because... it's just empty. But this movie has a setting, and I hope they'll build up on it. Don't watch it expecting to be scared, watch it to find an interesting take on the already over-used cliches.
