'House of Dust'
(Inbar Lavi, Steven Grayhm, Eddie Hassell, Holland Roden, Joy Lauren, Stephen Spinella, et al / DVD / R / 2014 / Anchor Bay Entertainment)

Overview: No one knows the real horrors that occurred 60 years ago in Redding House Asylum; all evidence was incinerated in its crematorium. But when a group of medical students break into the shuttered hospital, they literally stir up the ashes of the damned.

DVD Verdict: Inspired by true events, 'House of Dust' opens the door to a nightmare of murder and mayhem.

That's what the tagline for this movie is, anyway, but does it fulfill its promise, I hear you ask?

Well, in truth I'm rather glad to report that it's actually more of a mystery flick than a, shall I say "traditional horror" or some such in that vein we all know and love.

Lots of good (not great, but good) acting with a cast that has a very healthy stab at what they're paid to do - not too many cheesy face moments, thankfully - 'House of Dust' is actually a clever movie. Real life events withstanding, the actors allowed their self-generated fear in those dark, creepy rooms to give us, the viewer the impression that something was genuinely wrong and that things could honestly get worse!

And so, whether you see 'House of Dust' as a ghost story or a psychological thriller, it is still simply not a generic horror flick; and that leans in its favor here, trust me! That said, all your questions will be answered before the final credits of the film have gone by - believe me! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1:77.1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
