Great horror movie.

I have changed my previous review which I listed as a warning when this movie was first released - this movie was actually good, really good.

Review - 4/5
I didn't expect much going into this until I seen Victor Salva (director of Jeepers Creepers & Jeepers Creepers 2) was at the helm. Jeepers Creepers is at the top of my all time favorite horror films. Also, nice to know the 3rd is in the making. I wish he would hurry up with that one :(. This film reminds me a little of Wrong Turn. It has all I need in a B movie. Tobin Bell (Saw), creepy house, and a partly original story. It isn't cheaply made with a handheld either. I would say the budget was somewhere in the millions. Though the acting isn't the greatest ever, it made me a little uneasy at times and wonder what would happen next. The ending wasn't as great. I felt like it was a little ridiculous. The lead actor Luke Kleintank did ok as the person who is able to see someones death if he touches their skin. It consists of him and others searching for answers about his father and a house he has been drawing for years. Well he finds the house and it's pretty action packed from then on. His father is actually someone ridiculous. Wont say more because it would ruin the film. All around good movie with great action. It's not really scary in the jump out of your seat kind of way. It's more of a backwoods Wrong Turn kind of terror.

Don’t mistake the title of this movie with the 2009 Fangoria-produced film of the same name. I have not seen that one, but I would wager the plot lines are drastically different. I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this one because I had not heard any buzz about it, especially since Tobin Bell was involved. But I’m happy to report it’s a heck of a film with a unique story, good acting, and some great special effects.

Curiously, I’ve read a few negative reviews about this film where the reviewer stated he/she didn’t understand the film. I’m stunned to hear this, as I thought the plot line was easy to follow. Not to mention, it is clever and intelligent, a nice change of pace from the traditional house-in-the-woods concept.

DARK HOUSE looks good and has a pretty decent production budget. The production team does a nice job of fleshing out details in this film, especially when it comes to the house itself. I like the location chosen, and the architecture of the structure is certainly menacing in its own right.

I enjoyed the acting in the film as well. Tobin Bell never disappoints, and the rest of the cast does a good job overall. I particularly like Luke Kleintank in the lead as Nick. He brings a realistic depth to his role, and his chemistry with Alex McKenna (who portrays his girlfriend Eve) is very believable.

My sole complaint about the movie is that the ending seems a bit forced. **SPOILER ALERT** When Eve and Ryan find Nick in the house at the end, we are never shown nor told what happened when Nick went into the basement. There’s a lot of assumption that is made (or at least there was on my part), so I feel the ending could have been fleshed out more.

Still, DARK HOUSE has a nice punch as a horror flick, and I do recommend it. The film is available now, so give it a look.

***MAY CONTAIN PLOT SPOILERS***

Nick Di Santo (Luke Kleintank) what's in a name, has a special ability in that he can see how people are going to die. He has a small circle of friends and his mom is in a mental institution and only now is he seeing their deaths after 23 years. Nick inherits a house from his mom, an abandoned home which has things in the walls. He explores with his pregnant wife Eve (Alex McKenna) and meet Lilith (Lacey Anzelc) and Samael (Ethan S. Smith) and Seth (Tobin Bell) with an ax. Gosh. Where is this headed?

At this point it was pretty easy to guess who is Nick's father...his reason for visiting the house. Believe it or not I liked the film better with Frankenstein in it.

I grew bored watching the film. The building of the story and character was haphazard and ineffective. The actors weren't really that great except for Tobin Bell.

Mediocre rental.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. Implied sex. No real nudity.

Even with the film synopsis, I wasn't certain what to expect. The story was much more entertaining than the blurb described. When his institutionalized mother dies in a fire, Nick Di Santo is left the deed to an old house which he recognizes as the one he's been sketching all his life and thought was only created in his mind. Nick also has the ability to tell how someone will die merely by touching them. This is barely utilized in the story but consideringhow things go, it relly isn't needed and seems to have been added simply to give us a portent of the supernatural.

With his pregnant wife/girlfriend and best friend, he goes in search of his property. It's obvious to the viewer but not to Nick that his mother as well as her lawyer are conspiring with someone to get Nick to the house. He discovers both house and the town it was in were destroyed in a flood but a myth says the house merely floated downstream and still exists. Pushing it a little further, Nick encounters some state surveyors who just happen to know of the myth and within a few minutes help him find the house. That was definitely a little fortuitous ...but in a movie Time is sometimes of the Essence, so we'll ignore that.

Up until discovering the house, there's merely a sense of ill-being. Once Nick finds the property, still in fairly good shape because it was stopped in its course by a hanging tree, the terror really begins. There's a squatter...long-haired, long-coated...who seems to know Nick and tells him in no uncertain terms to get lost. Other long-haired, long-coated figures shamble ape-like through the wood, wielding axes but Nick doesn't seem to be their target...
