I really did not enjoy this movie. I wanted my money back and my time. I love horror movies even when there is no gore and just suspence. But with thismovie I was bored and a little confussed in the begining. Why are we supposed feel the suspence or fright of water coming under the door when it's raining outside. It's not like it terrifing to most people. I found it boring and only a little preachy towards the end. I would not recommend this film.

House breaks many stereotypes when it comes being to a Christian film but it when it comes to the horror aspects I felt like I was taken...

Better than I expected

I was very pleased with this movie. No, it is not a slasher which seems to be what is expected from the horror genre these days. Yes, you do have to think a little which few people seem to want to do these days. It is a story with a general moral to it: light defeats darkness. There was certainly no content warranting an R rating (a PG-13 would certainly have sufficed).

I have been a bit confused over the negative reviews of this film, and I think it may be because of subtleties. House contains many subtleties, and as such, may distract some people from the main plot which is as follows. Two couples and the owners (a family of three) are trapped inside a house. The villain wants one of them dead by sunrise or they all die. The two couples try to escape without killing each other. Unfor...
