House Review

Christian horror? Is it possible?

The end of this movie does have a Christian message if you follow the symbolism/allusions to Christ and Satan, and the battleground that is The House, which is exactly as stated: a place for weary souls. The film starts very strong and gets major brownie points for inducing the southern gothic. The actors are great, and you gotta love Michael Madsen and Bill Moseley in their small roles. Eventually developments in The House start to become too slap-dash and repetitive. And the main climax is an overdose of fairy-dust. Yet the final resolution becomes emotional given all the symbolism going on.

 Rating: 7/10

Catch the trailer.
