I have a few reservations but taken on a whole (suspending your disbelief a bit in order to accept the premise) House Hunting is on par with some of the better haunted house films. Unfortunately the bloody photo of Marc Singer on the cover of the DVD package is mis-leading - making the film appear to be a slasher movie which it isn't. (at least not very much) This type of marketing will disappoint gore hounds and illicit negative reviews causing the rest of us to miss a this spooky little film.
The premise and this is not giving away much. A couple of house hunting families visit a secluded house that's for sale in a wooded area.. For reasons better left unsaid. these folks find themselves unable get more then1000 feet from the house and there is no force-field of dome nvolved either. The reason is much more creepy.
There is nothing unusual about the house or its location which makes it all the creepier. The look of the house bares none of not the haunted...
Recently disappointed by the low-budget offerings, I went into this movie with no real expectations, and boy was I surprised! Marc Singer gave a wonderful performance as Charlie, a father with hidden secrets. Hayley DuMond portrayed Charlie's wife, Susan, and slipped into her role as 'the other woman' very nicely, working hard to befriend and make nice to Charlie's daughter, Emmy, portrayed by Janey Gioiosa. Emmy was a fairly typical angst filled teen that hates her stepmom. The true acting gems in this movie, however, were Art LaFleur and Victoria Vance as husband and wife, Don and Leslie. Art gave an impeccable performance as a stoic tough guy that truly loves his family, while Victoria gave a believable performance of a long suffering housewife - and third grade teacher - that is feeling deep grief.
Two families go to view a home during an open house; a dream house, fairly secluded farmhouse on seventy acres and asking price was definitely affordable. Charlie almost...
This movie was awful-do not waste your time! I have no idea why I kept watching this movie because there was no indications that it was going to get better so I can only blame myself for not walking away. The acting was flat with nothing to draw you into the characters and there were stupid little things thrown into the story line that you assume will build up to the explanation of what is truly going on but they don't. It's as if there were a few stories going on at once yet none of them ever reached a full conclusion. Do not believe the reviews about this being a "hidden gem" or "give it a chance" because those were likely written by the actors themselves as they desperately hope that someone will finally watch this garbage.
None of it made any sense and even the dramatic moments fell flat because the acting was so flat that any scene meant to be dramatic garnered the same reaction you'd give to someone spilling a can of soda. Ah, oops, oh here's a...
