    Synopsis


    House
    A mild box-office hit for New World Pictures, this lightweight attempt at horror parody from Friday the 13th producer Sean S. Cunningham stars former Greatest American Hero William Katt as a best-selling pop-horror novelist Roger Cobb (à la Stephen King) who suffers an insurmountable case of writer's block after separation from his soap-star wife (Kay Lenz) and the disappearance of their young son. Hoping to purge his personal demons by writing his Vietnam War memoirs, he moves into the massive mansion once occupied by his deceased aunt (who hanged herself in her bedroom), and finds himself surrounded by demons of a completely different kind. Roger takes the weirdness in stride, attempting to face down marauding monsters, interdimensional trap doors, and other supernatural horrors while concealing his predicament from the neighbors (except for the befuddled Harold Gorton [George Wendt], who tries gamely to play along with Roger's hare-brained monster-fighting schemes). ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

      A Fun Blast From The Past

      I must admit, I have been hunting for this on dvd since dvd's were first invented. Part of my endeavor to upgrade my vast collection of old vhs tapes to dvd. First was License To Drive (which took way too long to release, but I digress :). This was no oscar winning film and wasn't meant as such. However, the humor, the jumps, the great effects (for the time) and cast of (then) the most popular sitcom/t.v. stars William Katt (Greatest American Hero), Richard Moll (Night Court), and George Wendt (Cheers), made this film a real treat for me at the Mann 10 theatres back in 1986. I'm usually very picky about plots, and mostly acting.. but hey! what's wrong with putting all that aside and enjoying a fun movie without picking it apart. Such as today's teens go crazy over films like "Scary Movie", etc. Some of my favorite movies are my favorites for nostalgic reasons. This is one of the top on my list. The movie has definite entertainment value although today's youth may not appreciate it as I do. I will buy this and have a movie night with the kids and get back to you. In the meantime I'm stoked that it's finally been released on dvd.

      This movie is a great combination of horror and comedy and fans of both genres will want to indulge. The dvd is surprisingly good and contains several bonus goodies that are sure to please...
