Crafted depravity - thoroughly enjoyable....,
This review is from: Dark House [DVD] (DVD)
The moment Kaylee DeFer arrives on screen bursting out of her summer dress you just know this is going to be good. Crack the cold beer and buckle up on the sofa, make sure GF is held tight and sit back to watch the inevitable unfold. Crafted work, with cool lighting, some scorching supporting cast moments make for a well-honed piece of horror that stays true to it's genre and lets the drama play out well. Kaylee looks good and delivers well as at first haughty babe-brat reduced to screaming wreck by the end, whilst segueing off into a variety of mind-bending dreams/nightmares without ever once losing her poise. Dressed as a schoolgirl in crisp white blouse I can imagine there's a whole sequel right there. Smart ideas, good camerawork and great atmosphere sets this one firmly in the 'let's lose ourselves on Friday night' territory. Moral of the story - stay out of counseling! Oh, and don't turn up in a flimsy summer dress and expect it to last a horror film intact......
