There's lots of religious psychobabble and true identities are eventually revealed which are pretty preposterous. Canadian Jeff Wincott shows up late in a devilish, useless cameo.
The movie may have worked if it had focused on one of the tales or had better connectivity. It ends up being tiresome and perplexing, generating no suspense or thrills.
Sure it got better in the final third, but man, the acting and dialogue in general for this film is simply low brow horrid. There's no beating around the bush here for it's that bad. And quite why Corbin Bernsen (obviously on hiatus from the second season of 'Burn Notice' at that time) and C. Thomas Howell (who plays a character here named, yup, Thomas!) decided to sign on is beyond me too!
A paycheck film, sure, I can see that, but these such films stick with you, and your fans, trust me! As for C. Thomas Howell himself, the man (back in 2008 when this was filmed) was looking gaunt, very frail, and carried on his face a monster goatee that could quite easily have come with its own pet name!
With sentences like "You can either continue the path you're on, praying for those beyond help, or you can join me. I will teach you how to hunt and kill a fallen angel" abounding throughout, 'House of Fallen' (basically) follows three sub plots: A house full of bank robbers just waiting to turn the gun on each other, a man possessed by the Devil himself, and a young man stuck in a beach getaway dreamscape/nightmare!
A so-called religious-horror movie at its core, there are no real shocks, but there is enough bad acting to spread the wealth.Read more ›
Would I watch again? - No, barely made it through once.
*Also try - Constantine
Do you remember the party game from long ago, where you write a small part of a story, then fold the paper and pass it to the next person, who writes a bit, and so on? The story is written without anyone seeing what has gone before, then at the end it is unfolded and read aloud to the amusement of all. I strongly suspect this movie is the result of one of these games.

Love this movie and gives an interesting premise as to Corbin Bernsen's character.Published 2 months ago by pancdca
I was very disappointed in this movie. The acting was second rate and it looked like some senior project made movie. Very low budget and it was obvious. Read morePublished on October 24, 2011 by P. Mayes
This movie shows superb writing and directing. The plot and subplots will keep you in suspense. It will make you think and come up with different conclusions with each viewing. Read morePublished on July 2, 2011 by Barbara Stephens
