House (1986)



I had a great time watching this. It has aged really well in my opinion and the FX were excellent. The mix of comedy and horror was done just right. I love the setting and the house looks great. George Wendt was the perfect nosy neighbor and was good for a couple of laughs. William Katt in the lead role was terrific as well.

House gave off that same vibe and feeling a movie like Fright Night gives me. Just a fun ride to watch the main character go through so much crap. Ben the undead Soldier was highly entertaining to watch and the make-up looks great even by today’s standards.

I’m sure there are plenty of fans who love this flick. I need to revisit House II some time, too.

  1. One of my fave films from back in the day, and one of the best haunted house flicks ever. The part where he goes inside the mirror is boss.

    This movie is all kinds of amazing. I’ve pretty much worn out my VHS. The scene when the main character goes in the mirror is a favorite of mine as well. I like when the batwing skull thingy twirls that shotgun around like a cowboy and blasts the rope. So classic. Oh, and the scene when he’s chased by that uggo lady monster to a version of “You’re no Good” — or does that play when he cuts her up? I guess it’s time to re-watch this!

  3. Fun flick. love when he’s trying to get his neighbor (George Wendt) to witness the thing in his closet, Funny stuff!

    Thank you for posting this blog. Your post brought back some pleasant memories. I used to watch this, as well as House II, all the time when I was younger.
