Editorial Reviews

Are there deadly secrets buried in the orange groves, or is it just the hyperactive imagination of a young boy? Learn the startling answer in this expertly crafted thriller from director Peter Rader (co-writer of "Waterworld"). Packed with tension, suspense and a few good scares highlight this shocker starring scream queen Brinke Stevens. Please don't reveal the ending!

Customer Reviews

It's a good, suspenseful thriller; well told, well paced and well acted.

It's cheaper than renting it, but you'll probobly never want to watch it again, so why own it?
Dawn Marakby
I first caught this movie in 1989 simply because there wasn't much else to rent that evening.

I first caught this movie in 1989 simply because there wasn't much else to rent that evening. To my surprise and delight, I found one of the best late 80's horror offerings! The film finds two orphaned teens moving into the grandparents home and discovering they're hiding a dreadful family secret which has come back to haunt them. A mysterious woman (Brinke Stevens, in one of her most effectively frightening roles) begins lurking around the property and before you can say maniac on the loose, the bodies are piling up and Brinke is on a rampage... but wait! It might not be her doings!
It would be dishonest to classify this as a slasher movie, as there really isn't a whole lot of bloodshed or on screen knifings. Instead, there's a wonderfully intruiging mystery and plenty of screams and suspense. The climax goes a bit over the deepend, but as a whole, GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE is a frightening little sleeper you'll be glad to seek out.

I decided on purchasing this film afer reading the good reviews on here, i thought i would take a chance and maybe find a horror gem ive never seen. This was a slightly entertaining movie but leaves you disapointed. Story is about a boy and his sister who have to go live with thier grandmother and grandfather, strange things start happening and then the ((suprise)) ending. The ending didnt really suprise me. The begining through the middle keeps you watching to see what will happen but at the end you are like is that it? It wasnt scary. I wouldnt recomend you buy this, try renting it. Then decide.

`Learn the startling answer in this expertly crafted thriller from director Peter Rader (co-writer of Waterworld).' This is part of the editorial review listed on Amazon for the film Grandmother's House aka Grandma's House (1988). If this was meant as an enticement, it didn't work, as I saw Waterworld, and I didn't think it was all that great...maybe it had something to do with a man (or mutant, as the case may be) drinking his own wiz...I think Kevin Costner should have to enjoy a cup of his own urinations for each person subjected to his vanity projects...but I digress...this review is for the Image Entertainment release of the film, which lists the title as Grandmother's House and claims to be the 2003 version...there was a previous DVD release of this film titled Grandma's House, and it's essentially the same film with a few differences (I'll explain more later).

The film, directed by Peter Rader (Hired to Kill), stars Eric Foster (Death House) and Kim Valentine (.com for Murder) as recently orphaned siblings David and Lynn, respectively, who are sent to live with their grandparents, played by Len `Uncle Leo' Lesser (Seinfeld, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Kelly's Heroes) and Ida Lee (It Runs in the Family). Also appearing is scream queen and B movie fav Brinke Stevens (Repligator, Horrorvision, Mark of the Astro-Zombies). The film starts out with a funeral, as Eric and Lynn are paying respects to their recently deceased father (apparently, their mother passed sometime earlier). How did he die? Don't know, don't care, doesn't matter...

I rented "Grandmother's House" on a whim one day, looking for some new good horror, and I was pleasantly surprised by this lesser known sleeper. The cast is really good, the kids in particular. The actress who plays their Mother, is exceedingly menacing and really creepy. The actor who plays the children's Grandfather is, I believe, Uncle Leo from Seinfeld (though I may be wrong). I found this film entertaining, amusing, and just plain fun. It is suspensful and has a great ending.
