IFC Midnight has produced some gems, but it is not exactly what I would call reliable in terms of quality. I watched _From a House on Willow Street_ with a group, and all of us became confused at one point or another throughout the film’s runtime, not because it’s overly complex, but because it’s so dull that it was hard to remain totally focussed. Even Sharni Vinson, who I am a massive fan of, was no good in this.
That all said and done, they get away with some pretty rad creature design for a movie with this low a budget.
_Final rating:★★ – Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
Absolutely outrageously awful. Starts out somewhat promising but by every scene it gets worse and worse and when you think it possibly can’t get any worse… Guess what? It does.
Boring, stupid with not even any entertaining kills to make up for it.
I wanted to like it…
It wasn’t completely awful. The worst scene of all was the flashback with the priest and family around the table. Some of the worst acting and dialogue I’ve ever heard. It had some good moments so I don’t feel like I wasted the whole time.
You know if you are into jump scares and just love any horror movie, I guess you’ll enjoy yourself. Still I’m surprised by the overall high rating. And that is not only because one of the cast members distances him- or herself from the movie, but just the pure fact that the movie is filled with clichés. So many that it kind of started hurting physically.
So while I couldn’t fault the movie for any technical aspect (and I guess that’s plus that I like the actors in it, despite their horrible characters made me be kind in my rating), I don’t feel that way when it comes to the script. It starts off kind of good and it does sort of maintain a certain mood. But it’s so crazy what the characters do … I mean yes I realize we wouldn’t have certain movies, if characters behaved as if they actually had a brain, but still this stretches anything you’ll be able to stomach. I’d even say I like the ending in a weird way, even though it hurt too …
