This is a pretty typical haunted house scenario. In this case, a girl is pursued by beasties, who turn out to be quite vicious. Of course, her dad (Guy Pearce) and his girlfriend (Katie Holmes) don’t believe her…until. The brutal opening sequence promises more horror than the rest of the film delivers. There are some creepy moments and the creatures are mildly threatening, but too many dull spots of drama drag down the pace.
GAY ANGLE: Pearce almost bares his buff torso, but alas, it’s only quick reflections in the mirror. Did you know he was one of the original drag divas in “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert?”
Jerry Williams reviewed movies for WTVR-TV for 14 years and for Style Weekly for 10 years. When he launched his own website in 1998 at TVJerry.com, he took his reviews to the Internet. Through those hundreds of reviews, Jerry kept his sexual orientation muted. So, he's excited to be adding "gay angles" to his postings for GayRVA.com.
