Not the house of fun,
This review is from: House Of Nine [DVD] (DVD)
This film has a great premise. A number of random people are abruptly kidnapped in London and find themselves in a large house with all the windows and doors shut off so there is no escape. One of these is Kelly Brook who, throughout the films looks stunning and is one of the few sympathetic characters on display. The cast includes Dennis Hopper as a priest and Susy Amy (famous as Chardonnay in 'Footballers Wives') as a spoilt tennis player who swears a lot. The mysterious host makes one sole announcement over the tannoy; that the object of the 'game' is for only one person to remain alive and they will collect a huge cash prize. He also mentions that he'll be watching events unfold via the numerous cameras in the house. Sure enough things get nasty after a while and violence breaks out as one by one people get killed. For those expecting Kelly to disrobe; sorry, she does nothing more than remove her jacket during the entire film (although the eagle eyed might spot that her underwear changes colour as if by magic !). The ending when it comes is a bit of a let down, so for me the film fails to deliver all its expectations. There is also one extremely nasty violent scene. However saying that, the film passes an absorbing 80 minutes.
