Editorial Reviews

No one knows the real horrors that occurred 60 years ago in Redding House Asylum; all evidence was incinerated in its crematorium. But when a group of medical students break into the shuttered hospital, they literally stir up the ashes of the damned. For the mentally unstable new girl on campus (Inbar Lavi of MTV's Underemployed), it will force her to the edge of sanity. And for those who accidentally ingested the cremains of an infamous serial killer, their nightmare of madness and murder has just begun. Steven Grayhm (Journey to the Center of the Earth), Eddie Hassell (Devious Maids), Holland Roden (Teen Wolf), Joy Lauren (Desprate Housewives) and Stephen Spinella (24) co-star in this chilling possession shocker inspired by true events.

There are very few places as creepy to me as abandoned mental institutions and, as such, I find they are excellent locations for horror films. I am a firm believer that many things happen behind closed doors that the public may or may not ever find out about; and what better place to perform illegal experimentation on human beings than mental institutions? This is the premise for HOUSE OF DUST, an upcoming horror flick from Anchor Bay. But don’t let the mysterious title fool you; this is a haunting film that will make you squirm.

I love the title of this film because it fits on so many levels. It is menacing and foreboding, but it also describes a bit about the film…in an indirect way. Not to mention it sounds scary as hell.

HOUSE OF DUST is shot well and has a nice, dark overtone throughout the whole movie. The production value looks high, although my sole complaint about how the film is made is the CG blood-splatter effect in the opening scene. I think I would rather see nothing at all rather than see cheap digital effects; the results tend to take me out of the film.

Thankfully, that is my sole complaint about the film. The concept is fairly unique, and the story moves at a steady pace. I particularly like the ending; I will not say anything about it, so as to not ruin the surprise, but it’s definitely something I didn’t see coming.

I am curious as to why HOUSE OF DUST is rated R, though. I don’t recall any major language (certainly nothing you wouldn’t hear in a PG-13 film), and there’s no gore or nudity to speak of…so maybe the horror elements are too intense. I’m not sure.

But HOUSE OF DUST is a definite winner for me, and I recommend giving it a look. The film will hit store shelves next week, so make a note.

There has been a glut of horror films released over the past decade. It seems like everyone has realized that the lowest budgeted film that can be made is a horror film and that it makes for an easy entry into the world of film making. Coupled with a legion of horror fans who have adored so many films they want to emulate and you find an overabundance of horror movies coming out, most of them bad. So it's nice to see one every once in a while that might not have a big name starring in it and might use bits and pieces of other movies but that entertains at the same time. Movies like HOUSE OF DUST.

The movie focuses on a group of college students beginning a their year. New to the group is Emma, a young girl with some serious issues relating to her mental stability. Shy and withdrawn, Emma is egged on by her roommate Gabby to join in at the party some students are having that first night there. Gabby's boyfriend Dylan is on hand as well as his roommate, Kolt. Emma has caught Kolt's eye and he attempts to win her trust that night.

The group heads back to the dorm from the party and while walking across campus they go past a building covered in ivy and sealed to all students. The abandoned building was once and asylum that housed numerous patients including one notorious serial killer. While these students don't know it, in the opening sequence of the film we witnessed him killing some of the staff as well as his incineration in the oven in the basement. Seeing a building like this how can you expect kids not to try and break in? They do so, eventually finding the oven and accidentally knocking over a container of ashes. Guess whose ashes they were? Suddenly things begin to happen the kids.

The film opens with Lobotomy Asylum House of Horrors where a patient gets burned alive in the crematorium and ashes placed in a can on a shelf with a bunch of other people. This is followed by "Inspired by true events."

The film centers on a college (Eastern Connecticut State University) foursome. Dylan (Eddie Hassell) and Gabby (Holland Roden) are a couple. Dylan's roommate is Kolt (Steven Grayhm) a nice guy who goes commando (note shorts in opening shots) and doesn't drink. He sees new girl Emma (Inbar Lavi) who he takes an instant liking to, due to watching too much MTV. Emma takes meds and has cleavage of which we see very little of either.

Then to the shock and surprise of the viewing audience (plot spoiler) they go exploring said abandoned asylum against the direct orders of an overweight campus cop (Justin James Lang) driving a golf cart.. They make their way to the crematorium where they spill and inhale the dust of the house. (True Story: Canisters of remains were once found in an abandoned asylum.)

At this point the haunting thing begins.

The film was based on a good idea. I liked the plot. The cast lacked on screen chemistry. The horror factor was ineffective and the dialogue was bland. Character build up likewise was ineffective. Emma, the main character, we never got to know, even by the end of the film. Gabby gives us an explanation of what is going on with Emma about 40 minutes into the film, by which time you should have figured it out on your own.

Okay as a rental.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex. Near shower nudity.
