The Wrong House review (DVD)

What happens when you make a film that has a pretty decent idea at its centre but falls completely flat on its face thanks to a poorly-written script and a cast that doesn't seem to care enough to try to bring it to life?

The answer is The Wrong House (aka House Hunting).

Two families come across the potential house of their dreams, except that the house itself and the land surrounding it are less than tranquil.

Hellbent on driving both families mad and turning them against each other, the house will only let one family win the fight to own it, but will anyone be left at the end to live there once it starts its cyclical nightmarish game?

A fairly original idea that's unfortunately poorly executed in every manner (script, cast, effects, the look of the picture), The Wrong House is exactly what it says on the tin. Wrong. You'd be better off looking for something else.


Stuart O'Connor is the Managing Editor of Screenjabber, the movie review website he co-founded with Neil Davey far too many years ago. He likes all genres, as long as the film is good (although he does enjoy the occasional bad "guilty pleasure"), and drinks way too much coffee.
