Editorial Reviews

Psychic Heather Burton (Charisma Carpenter, ''Angel'') and a team of TV ghost hunters travel to investigate a haunted house surrounded by rumors of paranormal activity. Upon their arrival they find a foreboding house with a mind of its own, and as darkness falls, the house begins to kill the crew one by one. With time running out, will they be able to outwit this terror and make it out alive?

3.0 out of 5 stars Kinda surprised February 11, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This time, Syfy have comissioned Nu Image, production company behind Shark Attack 3 and Skeleton Man, to produce a haunted house movie.

It kinda works. But really it's accidental genius; besides their notably "so-bad-its-good" films; Nu Image movies generally consist of the basic building blocks of an archetypical film.

Now, between ineffective big-budget films like the 1999 The Haunting and Darkness, and ineffective low-budget films like Crazy Eights and Return to the House on Haunted Hill, most modern haunted house films are... well, ineffective.

There are some good ones although the "average" for such a film tends to be pretty weak.

The result? That the basic building blocks of a haunted house movie, set up correctly, are ultimately more effective than the majority of the "competition".

Essentially, House of Bones is a decent haunted house film. It has... well, the bare essentials for a haunted house film, but still proves a decent time killer.

Incredibly, despite often interfering with the scripts of movies they commission, Syfy have been restrained here; there's very little CGI. Additionally the body count is low; very few expendable characters introduced in hopes of "keeping things interesting"

And that's great, because haunted house related films really need establishing time. The film didn't leave me feeling unsettled, but it had me buying the concept that the house was haunted & the characters couldn't just leave.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Scary November 11, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I found it to be an enjoyable movie. Not groundbreaking or mindblowing but it thrilled me. I enjoy Corin Nemec a lot and wish he was featured more than he was. However, Quentin is a fun character and well acted. Charisma is equally as fun to watch. The spoof of 'reality tv shows that want to suck in more viewers by playing on the supernatural' is great! I jumped out of my seat a few times. I wish this had come out around Halloween but I'm sure it will make it onto SyFy's menu soon enough. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad March 1, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed watching this movie. I don't like a lot of gore which this movie didn't have. It was just scary enough for me. The ending was pretty cool and sinister.

4.0 out of 5 stars SiFi Fan will like this June 22, 2011
By F. Ware
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
OK, so the movie is not over the top great. But I like horror movies that give you a history about what is happening in the movie. This one was produced for TV so no gore here. I am a ScFi channel fan and I enjoyed this feature when it aired. Horror/ScFi fans will love this.

2.0 out of 5 stars House of Boneheads November 14, 2013
By The Wiz
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This reminds me so much of 90's slasher style (a la "Scream") but it's supposed to be a paranormal.... in fact it really crosses sub-genres going all over the place and ultimately falls flat.

If I could narrow it down I'd say this movie completely fails to draw the viewer in by: (A) introducing the paranormal trauma too soon after we meet characters that aren't terribly sympathetic or even interesting (B) making what appears to be a fairly large house on the exterior shots look like a set for your typical sitcom on the inside which is just way too darn small for any respectable haunted house (C) inundating the film with completely anticlimactic shock moments (like "omg look what happened to what's-his-name.... dang.... that sucks") and (D) giving us an ending that is like straight out of 70's made-for-television campy thriller.

Again, this isn't cheesy or low-budget but on a scary-scale of 1-10 it rates at about a 2 which is why i'm giving it 2 stars overall. My advice is rent, don't buy. :(

2.0 out of 5 stars Sadly Disappointed November 4, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The acting was poor and silly at times. I had high expectations from other reviews and what friends said but maybe my expectations were just too high before I watched the movie. Very disappointed, guess it would be OK of you were expecting a B flick.
