House of Good and Evil (2013) Review:
Even if we usually like them for what they are, low budget films are often quite deceiving. This really different here: House of Good and Evil was made with a 150 000$ budget and yet manages to be one of the best psychological horror films I saw this year. Even though I watched it on a low-quality screener, it captivated me more than most recent Hollywood horror-thrillers on big screens.
All the characters are really well interpreted, but the strength of the movie really comes from the main actress (Rachel Marie Lewis) who delivers a breath-taking performance in the role of the psychotic woman in this Shining-like movie. The plot is the second best reason to watch that film. It is really mysterious and full of surprise. The suspense is total until the ending, which concludes the movie brilliantly. The clever sound effects and the music are also worth noticing since they really help to create a great horror atmosphere in what could have been otherwise a simple thriller.
Of course, the movie is not perfect, it is a bit slow at times, and the realization is one of a low-budget film. But this largely compensated by the strength of the plot and the acting. I was totally charmed by that film and will be looking for other movies by both the director (David Mun) and the writer (Blu de Golyer). An independent horror gem!
