This movie wasn't half bad. I enjoyed it. I have pretty sound nerves but I actually jumped a couple of times. Although, I figured out the mystery to the story long before it revealed itself, I followed it to the very end. I think I would watch it again. It's not gorey and it's void of the usual sex scenes, if you like that kind of thing. It's just a creepy, twisted little tale that reminds me a bit of some of Clive Barker's work.It's worth the watch.

"House" begins with a tragic murder scene that still is able to give you chills, while leaving it all to your imagination. That dreary scene then cuts to Jack and Stephanie driving down a road, supposedly on their way to a marriage counseling session. After losing their daughter several years ago, Jack and Stephanie are now at a near-divorce, and when they talk, if ever, is usually only to blame the other for something random. When a car accident leaves them stranded with no transporation and no cellphone service, they make their way on foot to the ultra-creepy "Wayside Inn." Meeting another couple there, Randy and Leslie, who were in the same predicament as they were, they begin to sense something wrong.

As you can probably guess, "The Wayside Inn" contains more than meets the eye. Sooner than later, a crazy and demented killer named the Tin Man is trying to get them to kill one of the four of them, as to satisfy their "guilt." The house itself is also not as normal as it seems, confronting each person in the house with their past sins and guilts, and how it ultimately leads to life or death.

Although the book based off of this movie was written by Christian authors, don't expect anything preachy. In fact, don't expect anything close to preachy. Although you might be able to see some Christian parallels contained in the film (especially towards the end), nothing is ever blatantly obvious in the movie. Is that a good thing? Hard to say. On one hand, many Christians may be disappointd with the film's lack of clear Christian morality and the very controversial "R" rating (a PG-13 would've sufficed.) On the other hand, Christians who are hoping that this film may lead others to Christ, may worth looking into.

This is a pure horror film and it's one of the best I have seen. There is no sex and no gore. Never a second of comic relief. There is some violence but not a lot. This film got a well-deserved R rating based almost solely on the non-stop terror. I can't say these things about most horror films. One of my fellow reviewrers complained about the lack of character development. While this is true, I see it as a strength, not a weakness. More character development would have diluted the continuous creepiness and the fact that the main characters were largely unknown quantities helped keep us off balance.

Some reviewers labelled House a Christian film. It heavily uses themes like good vs evil and the afterlife, but I don't see it as Christian. There was no mention of Christ, no cross or other Christian symbols. Instead I feel that religious viewers (and not just Christians) will tend to project their own beliefs into the film.

I will definately watch this again and I strongly recommend it for all fans of true horror.

Enjoyed it with my husband and kids age 13 & 15. We all thought it was a little scary but not too bad. It was not blatantly Christian. After the movie was over, my 15 year old told us what he saw as the spiritual analogies in the film. Shared the movie with my parents and they thought it was very scary. Might have to look hard for the spiritual symbolisms. I do plan to show this to our youth group since they love scary films. If you are looking for a scary Christian film that is not pathetic, I would recommend this one.

I love the book House By Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker and I was hoping that since they made a movie of the book it would follow it at least somewhat. Needless to say, I was very disappointed; but I should have known because most movies don't. It is still a fairly decent film with some pretty good actors for the parts, if you haven't read the book or like to compare books with movies it's still a great buy.

This is supernatural horror? Wow. Where to start.

The ACTORS: Not bad acting, but absolutely no character development beyond the details of individual tragedies. Madsen was OK.

The SCRIPT: Horrible. A movie trying to be scary by throwing everything in except the kitchen sink and a mess of a story I still can't figure out. Want a haunted house? Got it. Creepy ghostly occupants. Yep. "The Hills Have Eyes" vehicle shenanigans? Oh yeah. A spooky little girl that could be the older cousin of the girl from "The Ring"? She's in there. How about a spooky boiler room ala Nightmare on Elm Street? In there. Psychological thriller? Ummm...maybe. Devil worship? <Sigh> YES. Oh yes, and Micheal Madsen playing a cop/demon/personification of evil that apparently killed God. Oh yeah, I almost forgot the TIN MAN (Candyman, Jason Vorhese, Kevin Dubrow from Quiet Riot). So how does the story tie all of these together? It doesn't, and it doesn't even try to. You never really find out about all of things. So many of these things are completely unnecessary or unrelated to the loosely designed plot. It was like it was written as the movie was being created,,,with the producer telling the writer, "MORE SCARY THINGS" (kinda like "We need more cowbell"). The writer continue to add supernatural components, but never links them or explains them.

The direction. Not bad in the beginning, but falls apart fast through the middle to the excruciating end. When the action gets going too many quick cuts to different characters and flashbacks...combined with the dark environment it became disorienting. Too many facial close-ups that hold for too long, and an unintentionally hilarious "light defeats dark" film moment.

BUDGET: Lo budget, but that does not have to mean a movie is bad.
