Frequently Bought Together
Two very different families search for the perfect house to call home. When both families show up at a deserted farmhouse, it quickly becomes clear that something is not right. After rescuing Hanna, a lost girl whose tongue has been cut out, they discover that every attempt to leave the farm takes them right back to its front door. Stuck in this purgatory together, they re haunted by a vengeful former owner intent on destroying them from within, with the simple declaration that only one family will call the house a home. As the days stack up and the families search in vain for a way out, the group dynamics dissolve into chaos, and horror reigns.

Two families with "issues" are out searching for a new home and are drawn to an isolated farmhouse out in the sticks. Upon arrival it soon becomes clear that something is not right, more so when when they rescue a fleeing girl whose tongue appears to have been cut out. Desperately trying to get away from the house, the families find that no matter which way they drive, they always end up back at the house...
Some on line sites have the film listed as a thriller, this is a mistake, House Hunting is definitely a horror movie, in fact it's a worthy 18 certificate in the UK. It's a film that has slipped under the radar somewhat and is far better than its unknown standing hints at. On one proviso, mind!
It isn't a spoiler to say that this is in keeping with the sub-genre of horror that uses a Twilight Zone type mystery at its core, since it's revealed very early on that these families are in some sort of purgatory. Similar films to this would be Dead End and Triangle, so if that type of repeat "WTF is going on?" formula is your thing then this is well worth taking a peak at.
It's never a terrifying film, one to make you jump out of your seats at regular intervals, and even though there is some serious blood moments, gore hounds are unlikely to be praising this from the roof tops for fulfilling their blood induced hunger.Read more ›
It centres on two families who both decide to look at the same house on the same day. They're both thinking of buying it. However, once they get there, they find they can't get out.
What follows are the typical revelations about their pasts and motives, plus the odd chopping up of various cast members and the obligatory creepy kid who seems to turn up in every modern horror film.
Based on its budget, it's not that bad. Or at least it could have been much worse. If you're into horror films and aren't looking for anything that's too much of a classic, you could do worse than watch this for an hour and a half. The cast put everything they have into their parts and this is a rare high among the sea of straight-to-DVD B-movies you find out there.
Interesting idea but that's about it. Straight away we get to witness the abysmal acting and characters who seem nonplussed that some strange force is keeping them all from leaving. They spend a whole day driving around trying to leave but ending up right back at the house. It doesn't seem to bother them that much so they just decide to stay the night before we get a 'one month later' message. Why we get that message is beyond me as they all act like it is the second night anyway.
In the middle of all this we have a girl whose tongue is cut out. She is from one of the previous families who viewed the house. She knows but can't explain what is going on and it seems pens don't exist so she can't write anything down either. And pens aside, she can't even show them apparently. It's beyond stupid.
This is a difficult film to review without spoilers but the characters in this are absurd. They become something they aren't for the sake of the script and it just isn't believable. When one of them does figure out a way to leave (and does), what does he do? He goes back to the house like you would...Anyway when he gets there and the rest of them know he has found a way to leave, they leave right? No, they stay, the only reason being to prolong the story.Read more ›
While the families seem to be ordinary enough (read somewhat dysfunctional) we learn a lot about them as the film progresses, and it becomes apparent that there are reasons why they have been brought to the old house.
The performances here are OK although Marc Singer as the lead actor does tend to overdo things at times. And there are some plot inconsistencies that really stretch belief but if you can let them go........
The film is quite long at around 95 minutes but note this is not as long as what the cover advises (105 minutes). Even the current length is probably a bit too long but I can see that the filmmakers were trying to convey the amount of time that these families were trapped at the property.
The rating is advertised as 18 but I can't understand how this could be correct - although there is violence it's nothing like what you see in other movies with this rating. I would have expected an age 15 rating instead.
However this is a pretty well composed horror picture which is worth a look. Just don't analyse the plot too much.......
