Christian thriller writers Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti make a bid for mainstream success with the film adaptation of their hit supernatural novel, HOUSE. The film follows Jack (Reynaldo Rosales) and Stephanie Singleton (Heidi Dippold), a self-absorbed couple who get sidetracked on their way to a counseling session. After blowing out their tires, they find their way to the Wayside Inn, a ramshackle B&B where they meet an equally self-obsessed couple, Randy (J.P. Davis) and Leslie (JulieAnn Emery, THE RICHES). The foursome quickly find themselves terrorized by a household of ghoulish servants and a masked lunatic, known as the Tin Man, who demands a dead body by sunrise. As they search for a means of escape, they are each confronted with the sins of their past.
Audiences may feel that they wandered through a hell house by way of an Agatha Christie novel, but this morality tale is not without its charms. The visuals are striking, and the special effects are inventive. The supporting cast gleefully chews the scenery, and a decidedly grizzled Michael Madsen adds some cult cache to the mix. HOUSE may be a bit too tame for the veteran horror aficionado, but it is sure to find a following among people of faith, and for those moviegoers who like their thrills and chills without all the blood and gore that accompanies most horror films.
Based on the novel by best-selling authors Ted Dekker & Frank Peretti comes a riveting supernatural thriller starring Michael Madsen and Bill Moseley.
