Editorial Reviews

Nine strangers wake up in a house with no recollection of how they got there and no way out. A voice on the PA introduces them to the grisly game they’ve been chosen to play – Last man standing wins $5 million in cash and their life back. When all attempts to break out together fail, tension turns to violence and violence to death and suddenly it’s every man for himself as they fight for their lives… Why are they here? Who will survive? And what will it cost them in the end?

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars is way too strong... but 3 stars is not enough... February 18, 2006
Format:DVD
I was pleasantly surprised by House of 9. As the movie begins, I saw the premise unfold and thought... what a great idea... sort of SAW 2 meets BATTLE ROYALE meets SURVIVOR.

Although more of a ripoff of SAW 2 (or maybe SAW 2 was a ripoff of House of 9? Not sure, maybe it was unintentional), HOUSE of 9 approaches the subject with fresh ideas and MORE REALISM. Where Saw 2 struggles to be commercial and come up with BIZARRE and MORE BIZARRE ways to kill people with the funky contraptions and riddles, HOUSE of 9 keeps it real.

As 9 unwitting people are snatched off the streets and wake up in a house that is sealed and unescapable, they are told that one person will be allowed to leave the house, and that person will be given $5 million... that one person is the soul survivor... meaning... the only way out... is for them to kill each other.

Where Saw 2 wastes no time getting into the depravity and murder and the thin assumption that a bunch of criminals will want to murder the son of the man who put them in prison, HOUSE of 9 keeps it real. It explores human nature and the unwillingness to comply and wait it out. How long would it take for a house full of strangers to actually want to kill each other? And how? there is one gun, with few bullets.

The mostly unknown cast, with the exception of Dennis Hopper and Kelly Brook, deliver well. As time goes by, the food is minimal, the personalities are clashing and tensions are building. Violence is coming and you can feel it, despite the members of the house's relucatance to participate in the sick game.

House of 9 offers very little but a slightly new twist on an archetypal horror motif and some pretty incomprehensible casting. Dennis Hopper as a priest? I mean, come on, a priest? Hopper? Casting really dropped the ball all the way around on this one, I'm afraid. Hopper is probably the best actor of the whole bunch. They should have called this movie House of 9 Bad Actors, or House of 9 Characters You Desperately Want to See Die. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you actually have to slog through the entire first half of the movie to get to the first of the characters' eagerly-anticipated deaths. The first forty five minutes is basically these nine people moaning about their fate and verbally attacking one another.

So here's the premise. Nine individuals are randomly chosen to partake in a little contest, and by chosen I mean kidnapped, drugged, and deposited within the confines of a mysterious house. Once they all awaken and gather together, they learn that one of them will win five million dollars. There will be no consolation prizes for the losers, however, as they will all be dead. You see, in order to win, you have to outlive the other eight people in the house. So who are these lucky people chosen to take part in this deadly little game? Well, you have a priest (Hopper), a dancer, a criminal, a pro tennis player, a fashion designer, a cop, a composer and his wife, and a would-be rapper, each and every one a total stereotype, especially the rude, vulgar, selfish, cop-hating rapper (honestly, I'm surprised someone in the black community hasn't protested this film's racist characterization of the offensive rapper).

3.0 out of 5 stars More than a two, but less than a three... October 30, 2006
By Robert
Format:DVD
There are some really good elements to this movie. Strangers randomly kidnapped and put into a locked home with only one survivor to earn the $5 million prize. Simple enough. There is a fair amount of tension among the protagonists, and the performances are effective enough to be believable. The buildup is slow, pervasive, and really not predictable. There is always a sense that something could happen at any moment, and the movie preys on that atmosphere. And I was suprised by the ending, which revealed a truly creative twist.

Having said that, the most horrifying part of this film is Dennis Hopper's attempt to maintain an Irish accent as the completely out-of-place priest. Just plain bad as his character is oddly juxtaposed against the other youthful cast members. And while there is tension, there is also a considerable amount of brooding, where the characters simply look unhappy, drink, or console each other quietly while overbearing music plays in the background. And for a film that feeds off the intensity of the feelings hopelessness, fear, and isolation, the deaths come suddenly over a brief period and in a rather hurried fashion.

All in all, a good rental that ultimately hit its target despite a few significant stumbles along the way. You'll be forgiven for hitting the fast forward dial a time a two when things get slow.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hopper comes close to being the K.O.D. November 13, 2006
Format:DVD
Movies not bad and I do like the cast, all but Dennis Hopper who can be the kiss of death in my mind.

D. Hopper gives a so so performance and really does not get the chance to chew up the screen as much as he could have so I can not blame this movies let downs on him, but man does this movie seem like everything else I have seen lately, Saw comes to mind.

The Cop and the black kid were stand outs but the French dude just got on my last nerve.

Watch it and let us know your thoughts on it.
