House (1986) Review:
House is a classic of horror/comedy that was great back in the ’80s but that would probably disappoint most modern viewers. Thereee are a few interesting things in that movie, for example, the cool latex monsters, and a couple of very funny scene. But on the other hand, one must say that the movie is not really funny not scary anymore. To cite only one, Big Ben, the Vietnam war skeleton, was extremely annoying and made this movie a nightmare to watch for me.
The story, without being crazy, is decent. The movie starts pretty well as a haunted house movie and could have been great but instead of continuing in the scary or entertaining pathway, it quickly transforms into a lame 80’s horror comedy which sorts of fails at being funny.
If you are a fan of horror/comedy from this period such as “Ghostbusters” or “Beetlejuice” (which are a thousand time better in my opinion), you may want to give it a try. Others should pass for there are so many other great movies from the ’80s.
