When Shameless Screen Entertainment first announced that they will be releasing THE HOUSE WITH LAUGHING WINDOWS, I was excited to say the least! This has been one of those films that have long been on my list of titles to check out after hearing so many great reviews. Thankfully, the movie not only lived up to expectations, but surpassed them too!
THE HOUSE WITH LAUGHING WINDOWS is an incredibly creepy film where almost every frame oozes with an eerie atmosphere and sense of dread. For all those who enjoy films such as DON'T LOOK NOW and THE WICKERMAN, you will love this film! It's also quite unique compared to other giallo films. Rather than focusing on outlandish gore, guts and boobies, THE HOUSE WITH LAUGHING WINDOWS is much more reserved. Beautifully shot and with a haunting soundtrack, it's easy to see how this has become a classic of the genre. With its location being rural too, it's a unique blend of Lucio Fulci's incredible DON'T TORTURE A DUCKLING, mixed with DON'T LOOK NOW and a slithering of SUSPIRIA.
This release is also superb. The film has been completely resorted under the director's supervision for this DVD and so it's looking better than it ever has.
I'd highly recommend it!
