The House Next Door
(James Russo, Theresa Russell, Sean Young / VHS / R / 2002 / Gator Home Ent.)
Overview:Lori and Tom Peterson have moved into their dream home, next door to perfect neighbors Carl and Helen Schmidt. But when Helen mysteriously disappears, Lori begins to suspect that their new friends are not who they appear to be.
VHS Verdict:I love horror/suspense movie's and so seeing that the cover of this VHS was also quite mysteriously intriguing, delved straight into this Joey Travolta directed fiasco ! In all honesty, the movie was okay, but not worth renting and definitely not worth buying ! The plot ‘twist’ is also kinda given away on the cover, as Carl might not be who he seems to be, but that’s neither here nor there. The script is been-here-done-this-before in many ways, but the way Lori fights back and overcomes her original fears may also not be anything new but is definitely the best part of this mediocre flick !
