Product Description

The much anticipated directorial debut from Paul Hyett, one of modern films most respected special make-up effects designers, whose credits include The Descent, Eden Lake, The Woman in Black and many more, The Seasoning House is a taught and claustrophobic exploration of psychological terror that mixes the nerve shredding genius of Hitchcock with Polanski s visual intensity. The Seasoning House is a grim and soulless place where young girls are bought and sold for men s pleasure. Here we meet Angel (Rosie Day), a young, orphaned girl enslaved by Viktor (Kevin Howarth). Unbeknownst to her master, she moves between the walls and crawlspaces of the house silently observing, learning and planning for her escape. When her closest confident is savagely killed, Angel can no longer contain her rage and sets out through both ingenuity and brutality to seek justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has to be the most disturbing movie of the year 18 Aug 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This movie left me a nervous wreck, talk about graphic in your face brutal violence, was going to give it 3 stars because it was so horrific, but deserves 5 stars for portraying the horrendous events that took place during the Serbian war.

I had to turn it off a few times and come back to finish it in pieces it was that horrible to stomach, really feel sorry for the poor girls and what they had to endure, graphic rape / prostitution and terrifying retribution.

Believable and and well made.

Don't watch if you have a weak constitution, you have been warned, it's extreme.

5.0 out of 5 stars "..BOLD AND BLOODY THRILLER.." 18 Aug 2013
Format:Blu-ray
This is a bold and shocking movie filled with brutal rape and violence towards young girls so not everyone's type of movie, despite being horrible in content it is a very well made film and amazing to watch, the story is about girls who are snatched and taken to a remote house where they are drugged and prostituted to military men, one of the young girls who works for the man in charge is mute and branded with a facial birthmark making her unusable so she looks after the house as a prisoner, then one day she finds her moment to fight back and get revenge on them all for what they have done, then the movie gets real bloody, there is some brutal gore scenes in places, the cast is amazing the lead girl Rosie Day is fantastic, and Sean Pertwee is brilliant as always playing a badass soldier who's a bit of an evil man, overall this is a little gem and for a small budget film its well worth the money if the subject matter doesn't put you off, great picture quality and has features, commentary and behind the scenes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good lower Budget Thriller 19 Aug 2013
Format:DVD
I got this dvd after reading a couple of reviews and was not disappointed a brilliant performance by Rosie Day and Sean Pertwee with good support from the rest of the cast. The bleakness of the situation and the tension as the film progress's keeps you watching the gore is well done and right for the scenes. Worth getting an intelligent film but also edge of the seat in places.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, Astounding, Brutal, Nerve Shredding 20 Aug 2013
By James
Format:DVD
A fantastically well directed film from Paul Hyett, the performance he produces from Rosie Day is second to none.

As a keen horror fan it is a pleasure for me to recommend this brutal film.

Directed to a tee and with some graphic and disturbing violence this is a clear front runner for British horror/shocker film of the year.

I will be following Paul's work with a keen eye and after seeing a press release for his upcoming film I am as excited as a kid at Christmas!

5/5!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not That Good! 15 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I only bought the DVD as I'd allowed my own car (a Lada 1500) to appear in the film, and I did find it, for all of 5 seconds! Apart from that, I don't think the film is much good; the dialogue's banal and badly recorded & I didn't think the film worth watching.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed 10 Mar 2014
By Ricoh
Format:Blu-ray
I was really disappointed with this film. It tried to portrays the horrors of a group of young women, but I thought it failed miserably. Low budget, grim and depressing. It could have been much better done. I am surprised by all the good reviews.

1.0 out of 5 stars totally Horrific 14 Jun 2014
Format:DVD
I think this film should never have been made it is totally horrific and whoever thought up this plot is sick and I also feel that if anyone that thought this was a good film is also sick I am Disgusted. I understand that this sort of thing happened and still may be happening but to make a movie about it was just not needed

4.0 out of 5 stars LISTS, VIKTOR, LISTS 30 Aug 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The aftermath of an Eastern European war is that young girls are forced into prostitution. Angel (Rosie Day) is a young mute girl who is taken to such a place. Viktor (Kevin Howarth) who runs the place has taken a liking toward her and has her in charge of shooting up the other girls. She befriends one of the girls who knows sign language.

The soldiers who come there are mean and cruel. Angel, makes Fiona Apple look obese, as she crawls through air vents like my cats do when I yell at them for changing the channel. The first half of the film is slow establishing the characters and scenario.

This is not the exploitation film one expects from the cover and title. I enjoyed the dark irony of the ending which was worth the wait.

Worth a view if you liked " The Whistleblower".

Parental Guide: F-bomb, rape, male rear nudity. No female nudity.
