RICH REVIEWS: House of Demons

Four estranged friends reunite and spend the night in a remote country house that was once home to a Manson Family like cult. As the night goes on, the strange rituals in the house’s past open connections between the past, the present, and the subconscious, forcing all the characters to confront their deepest secrets and darkest demons, or be destroyed by them. It’s a blend of The Shining style freaky horror with the emotional character focus of a film like Magnolia. The film stars a number of prominent geek culture personalities including Amber Benson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Chloe Dykstra (Heroes of Cosplay), Tiffany Smith (DC All Access), etc.

Comments: Some friends while driving have an accident. One of the friends gets seriously hurt.
Things start to happen much later on. The flashes of images are confusing. The vampire-like creature is made up to scare you.
The movie does move along slowly. We get glimpses into the characters pasts. Gwen does come across as a mess.
The four friends are just hanging out at a house. Weird things keep happening every so often. What is the purpose of this movie?
There is some nice imagery. The actors do show some skill at their craft.
The characters needed to have had more focus on getting to know them so you would care more about them.
Well after the way the story goes and the way it jumps around it is actually nice to see the way it ends. It gives one hope.
