House That Jack Built
A dying, powerful father asks his only son to preserve the family estate and never tear it down. Time loosens his promise, and Jack demolishes the estate to build a "party palace". On opening night, Jack and company are in for a rude awakening. A "monstrous spirit" has returned with murderous intents on those who have knocked the house.

I am a huge Joe Mantegna fan, and thus pre-ordered and chose to overnight this movie. I was very disappointed by the fact that Mr. Mantegna's role in this film is a cameo at best. Clearly the filmmakers knew they had a no name cast, and thus attached his name/face to the front to try and draw in larger crowd. (which worked, as my wasted dollars are proof)
The plot for the film is a mindless setup to lure guests in to the house to be brutally murdered. Jack (Kris Black) inherits his family's house. The house brings back horrible thoughts of when his mother was murdered here, so what does Jack do? Demos the home and builds a party house on the land. Doing so awakens Jacks Grandfathers spirit (aka, the killer) Jack, in celebration of having completed his party house, hosts a party. The Grandfather starts killing off the guests... Bland dialogue with monotone delivery ensues.
Just let me point out right here that the cast in this film is mediocre at best with Kris Black taking home Worst Actor Award as the lead. I'm not sure if his character was supposed to be mind-numbingly boring, or if Kris himself was falling asleep during the shoot? Needless to say, the audience will have a hard time relating to this character, and I imagine most viewers will wish he comes to the same fate as the chick being bludgeoned to death by a hammer.
The picture quality of this film looks like a Standard Def rip from a poorly broadcast TV station that was bootlegged in China and sent directly to me.
I honestly think the reviewers who scored this film 5/5 were watching a different film.
