      delysid d hey, i loved this sleazy old video nasty Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/23/18 Full Review Audience Member A strange tale of a paranoid writer who's holed up in a remote house with a secretary who he quickly becomes obsessed with while trying to finish his new book. Creepy locals and strange behavior are the order of the day, and it's a very watchable, sleazy little affair. Rental! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member This film goes by so many different titles depending on where in the world it was released or how it was released. Whether you know it as Trauma, Expose or House on Straw Hill, the film is truly a nice little piece of Udo Kier history. The film plays much like a traditional thriller with aspects of giallo thrown into the mix. It isn't very gory though there are a few moments where we get to see some red stuff. Where the film tends to draw people in is due to the titillating story ;) With plenty of nudity and sexual situations brought forth through a bizarre tale of seduction, seclusion and sexual violence, House on Straw Hill, while not deserving of the UK ban, still manages to entertain a modern audience. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Some stylistic flourishes spice up an odd yet dull video nasty. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Some intriguing elements, but mostly quite boring, isn't it? Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Sexy girls masturbates, sexy girl kills couple of guys, sexy girl masturbates some more, two sexy girls make out, sexy girl... ok, that's enough of spoilers. Nice piece of sleazy british film history. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
