IF the fam­ily in this creepy house tale had watched the re­cently re-mas­tered ver­sion of The Ami­tyville Hor­ror they could have saved them­selves from walk­ing into a night­mare. The ba­sic rule be­ing, if you’re in a hor­ror film you should never, ever, begin a new life in a house that seems too good to be true. So how come it’s been va­cant for so long and all the lo­cals pass it on the other side of the street? Th­ese are the kind of ques­tions that would avoid buyer’s re­morse. But, of course, John Alexan­der (Michael Var­tan - pic­tured) doesn’t ask too many ques­tions, or take a peek in the at­tic crawlspace be­fore mov­ing into a des-res in a neat sub­ur­ban area with new bride Me­lanie (Na­dine Ve­lazquez) and daugh­ter Han­nah (Erin Mo­ri­arty). It’s young Han­nah who first has a feel­ing all’s not well when root­ing through boxes of be­long­ings left in the garage by the pre­vi­ous ten­ants, who ob­vi­ously left in a hurry. Then, when Han­nah’s home alone ob­jects mys­te­ri­ously move, there are shuf­fling noises over­head, doors creek, and pic­tures fall off the wall. You or I would run for the hills scream­ing, but not this fam­ily, they al­ways some­how man­age to put them­selves in more dan­ger from what­ever hor­ror lurks within. And you hope they don’t find out what it is too soon!. Name an­other creepy house film. En­tries to Alex Gor­don, Within com­pe­ti­tion by Au­gust 10.
