Review: The Perfect House (2010)

First I´d like to thank Mona Elyafi at ILDK Media for providing me with a screener.
Newlyweds, Mike (William A. Robertson) and Marisol (Andrea Vahl), are given the tour of their potential dream home by a perky real estate Agent (Monique Parent). They soon find out that their perfect house might just have a past. The ugly horrors of this house are revealed through three original tales of terror: "THE STORM" A Hitchcock inspired, dark shadow filled tale of an abusive family taking shelter in their basement from a violent, fast approaching storm. Soon we learn that the weather isn't the only thing threatening to tear this family apart.... "CHIC-KEN" Jason, Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger are all mythological perfect killing machines that still to this day terrorize our subconscious. But could the perfect serial killer truly exist? Maybe he's already been operating undetected for years. Maybe he's someone's next-door neighbor. Maybe even yours...... "DINNER GUEST" The Perfect House is written and directed by Kris Hulbert and Randy Kent. Mostly good performances from the whole cast and special praise to Felissa Rose who is great in this. It´s professionally shot and edited. The concept is very cool and all three tales are nice, they deliver the goods and we get some nice twists in "THE STORM" so I have difficulties picking a favorite of the three. Some really nice, tense and atmospheric scenes in this. There is plenty of gore, well made practical make-up fx, and it´s very violent and brutal but it isn´t gorefeast and some violence takes place off screen violence. I´ll be honest and admit I was a little bit surprised how brutal and sadistic it got in some scenes, especially in "DINNER GUEST" . No T & A in this.
This review is based upon a passwordprotected screener supplied by Mona Elyafi at ILDK Media.
Rating: 7 out of 7. I liked The Perfect House, it´s definitely recommend viewing for horror fans and I'll be purchasing the DVD.
