Editorial Reviews

Horror novelist Roger Cobb is a man on the edge, reeling from his recent divorce, haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his young son, and struggling with his new book about his traumatic experiences in Vietnam. But when he moves into the strange house left to him by his late aunt, Roger’s precarious sanity comes under siege by nightmares of his dead war buddy, visits from a nosy neighbor, and an onslaught of hideous creatures from another dimension. Horror has found a new home, and it’s fully furnished with murder, monsters and madness. William Katt (TV’s The Greatest American Hero), George Wendt (TV’s Cheers), Richard Moll (TV’s Night Court) and Kay Lenz (Stripped to Kill) star in this outrageously scary horror hit, produced by Sean S. Cunningham (Friday the 13th) and directed by Steve Miner (Warlock, Halloween: H20).

My primary reason for posting this is to clarify details regarding the aspect ratio of the House DVD. While Amazon does indicate the presentation is in "widescreen" format, I was disappointed to see the glaring 1.33:1 label on the back of the case when it arrived. Fortunately, the printing is in error and the film is, in fact, presented in 16x9 "anamorphic" widescreen. SO, there you have it - Amazon's item details are correct. Sorry this isn't a full-blown review... if you're a fan of the movie, I'm sure this will bring back some fun memories of 80's horror. I haven't really had a chance to sit down and watch the whole DVD yet, but the picture quality seems decent enough from what I saw when I popped it in for a few minutes (if you're hoping for a full blown restoration - this ain't it, I can tell you that much). I also purchased the sequel House II: The Second Story and it seems to be similar in picture quality, if not a hair better. Likewise, it shares the same 1.33:1 labeling error on the case - rest assured, it is presented in 16x9 format. Not HD, but a couple of fun flicks to add the to the collection in time for Halloween. Now if they would just get a widescreen version of Fright Night II out on the street...

'Ding Dong, You're Dead!' HOUSE is a wacky special effects show that stars CARRIE's William Katt as Horror novelist Roger Cobb, who has moved into his aunt's creepy old house to finish work on his latest novel. While there, he discovers that the house is actually a gateway to another dimension, a dimension filled with ghouls and ghosts! HOUSE teams several unsung heroes of Horror together to create a campy cult-comedy, including writer Fred Dekker (NIGHT OF THE CREEPS), director Steve Miner (FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2), and producer Sean S. Cunningham (FRIDAY THE 13TH). William Katt is great in the lead, and brings out the silliness of the script perfectly without going too far over-the-top. He faces off with the towering Richard Moll as Cobb's zombified army buddy Ben, who apparently wasn't too happy about being left behind in the jungles of Vietnam. The excellent costume work that brings Ben back from the dead is what most fans will remember from the film, while most of the other rubbery monster designs are rather far-fetched and goofy looking. The old Victorian house also offers tons of personality, and makes for a great interdimensional portal. With tons of frights and laughs, HOUSE is sure to entertain fans of 80's Horror!

Loved this movie as a teenager and still find it fun to watch despite there being no CGI. It was all old school, costumes and such. Not scary (a few shock moments that might make you jump). Just good clean fun if you enjoy 80's style movies.

Cunningham(Director of FRIDAY THE 13TH) and directed by Steve Miner(director of HALLOWEEN H20, FRIDAY THE 13TH-Part 2, and FRIDAY THE 13TH-Part 3).

HOUSE was an awesome horror flick that had a lot of the same actors and actresses from the FRIDAY THE 13TH saga like Ron Carroll(FRIDAY THE 13TH)and had the same music composer(Harry Manfredini)which also did the music scoring for most of the FRIDAY THE 13TH installments as you may notice, especially during the major action scenes that are violent.

HOUSE also takes me all the way back to memory lane to when I was still living in the Imperial Valley when HOUSE had its theatrical release in the Spring of 1986 when I was in 7th grade at Wilson Jr. High School in my hometown(El Centro, CA).

And you thought your house was weird!

In the top three of my favorite horror comedies of all time, House brings back fond memories of childhood. I used to watch this religiously, entertained by the grim humor, the outlandishly gory villians and the juicy plot. Not being able to watch much horror at a younger age due to parental restrictions, this one fell through the cracks as being "allowed." Even my mother found it amusing, and this is a woman who hates her horror.

The plot is pretty simple, but in a way it isn't. There are some nice twists and turns, and this movie is chock full of jump-at you scares and cheesy B horror. We have clever backflashes throughout showing Roger's time in the war for his current book, but eventually these flashbacks take on new meaning and even more bizarre things start to happen.

Let me sad one thing - this house is terrific. Doorways and other dimensions through bathroom cabinets, possessed gory creatures with tight skimpy dresses, skeletons that come flying out of the closet - you name it, it's there. Some nice gore throughout helps the movie run along even more.

The music choice is hilarious. Comically enhanced eerie themes, as well as some nice classical oldies when the time is right. (Such as when Roger decides to bury something particularly unpleasant in the backyard.)

The cast couldn't be better. We have the curly blonde, blue eyed actor William Katt, (the unlucky soul who brings Carrie to the prom) to take the lead. He's convincing in this role and even better acting than in Carrie. As I said in that review I would have liked to see more of him in films. He seems to have a natural way about him on screen.
