Film: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Extras: 1 out of 5 stars
I am a big sucker for 80’s horror slashers. Thanks to Arrow Video always providing us horror fans with the best horror films from that period. “Don’t Go in the House” is a mix between “Psycho” and . It definitely stands alone though and kicks some serious ass. It is also complete and uncut for the first time released on DVD.
Following the death of his abusive mother, Donny start hearing voices in his head. Though not burying his mother, he keeps her in the room upstairs and contains to see visions of her haunting him. Donny sets out for girls in order to satisfy the voices and his new blood lust. Of course he is not looking for love because after he tricks them into his house, they will never make it out alive and might join his mother in the spare room.
Although I was only able to review a screener not the final DVD release, it is said to also come with a reversible sleeve of original artwork and a collectable booklet by horror expert Anthony Timpone. This is something that Arrow Video is known for and usually with the Blu-ray releases there are multiple covers included, which is a great feature. The only special features included on this release are a trailer and teaser for the film.
