Even if we don't get all the answers, we need something more to hang onto - something to make us care.

Format: DVD
I watched this movie for two reasons: We love True Blood and never miss an episode, and since Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are featured on the cover, I was interested to see more of their acting. Secondly, because I work in Real Estate and thought the open house premise would be fun. Like an open house that doesn't just go bad, it goes slasher bad, awesome!

Sadly, it was a boring, run of the mill home invasion slasher/thriller. Anna Paquin was in the movie for 30 seconds, Stephen Moyer for about 5 minutes tops. After checking out the back and seeing Open House was directed by Andrew Paquin, both of those cameos now make sense. What better way to draw in all those True Blood fans then to have these two on the cover?

The movie just slowly progressed, the acting was fine but not impressive. The directing was typical, nothing wrong with it. The story has already been done time and again, and they missed the opportunity to explore some unique aspects of the characters. No scares, regular amount of spurting blood. I love scary movies, I'm not a big critic. I expect some entertainment, that's about it. Open House barely provided even that.

This doesn't have quite the plot that the DVD jacket suggests. Just skimming the jacket blurb, you might think this movie will be about a maniac or two taking up residence in the basement of a house for sale, then creeping out at night after new occupants have taken up residence there. That sounded like a promising premise that plays into a glancing fear many of us might have when we consider buying a house. Did the realtor conscientiously check all the basement cubbyholes, all the closets before locking up after every Open House?

But no, that isn't quite what this movie is about. If anything, it's a reversal of that more predictable theme. In this case, the sociopaths blatantly occupy the body of the house, while the rightful owner gets imprisoned in the basement, left to haunt and perhaps ultimately challenge the intruders.

This is a movie of few words, at least on the part of the male sociopath. There is no burden of back-story here, no Psycho-like epilogue neatly explaining the psychopaths' behavior. This vicious duo dwells in existential space, isolated in their clean, white, new surroundings. The male is a silhouette as he sits on the couch, limned by the sunlight coming in through the window behind. These two drop in from their own universe, reminiscent of the evil that descends in the notable German film, "Funny Games." In this case though, one of the intruders has the redeeming capacity to feel some affection, some empathy.

But the film's overall silences are what make it more memorable than the average maniacs-amok film. It has a trance-like, fairy-tale quality that draws the viewer into its silent spaces, that invites the viewer to fill the vacuums.

"Open House" does include something of a twist.

Format: DVD
When I chose to watch this movie, I thought it would be something I would enjoy. Not so much....

The story follows the journey of a divorced woman as she tries to sell her upscale home. We see numerous couples visiting the Open House held by the realtor.

Then one day, we are aware that a mysterious person is going down the basement stairs, and the realtor leaves without realizing it.

Next, a mysterious couple seemingly takes over the house, after first killing a couple of guests and tying up the woman who resides there.

From there, we catch a glimpse of one horrible scene after another, until finally, the carnage is over.

Or is it?

First, I thought that Anna Paquin would have a bigger role in this film but her scenes were brief. The other actors were unknown to me, and if I'd realized that "Rachel Blanchard" was NOT "Tammy Blanchard," whose work I enjoy, I probably would not have clicked over to rent this one. Throughout, I kept wondering when there would be a big reveal that would illuminate us as to the motivations of the killers. But nothing presents itself. I like to understand why the characters behave the way they do; senseless violence turns me off.

But for those who like horror for the sake of it, there are some moments that you'll enjoy. As for me, I did stay glued to the film throughout, so I guess that says something.

Definitely not five stars, though. Three, perhaps.

We were disappointed in the movie. The acting wasn't bad and it looked as though it had potential but there wasn't enough explaination given as to why this was all happening. Also, there wasn't alot of background/relationship information given Layla and her brother/mate.

I guess it is suppose to be suspenseful because of the lack of information provided?? The fear of the unknown...I don't know but it just seemed lacking without it.

A guy and girl who are brother and sister but are oddly intimate apparently go house to house and live in it...why do they do this? The question is never answered.
Also, the neighbors, family, friends, ect. never think to report something suspicious? So the duo have been living in peoples' homes and the police has never caught onto them? Oh yeah...they move from place to place frequently....but why they do this is never answered.

There are more unanswered "why" questions but I don't want to give too much although there isn't much...
