      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      House of Darkness finds writer-director Neil LaBute just as acerbic as ever, although he's made more compelling statements on sexual mores.

      Sam Movie sucked ass, just a guy being awkward for an hour and a half Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/25/22 Full Review anonymous waste of time and money Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/12/22 Full Review Chas Overall this movie was just awful. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/10/22 Full Review Christian C One reason and one reason only it's getting trashed - and it isn't that "things are telegraphed too early…" All of the people saying that stupid dribble *LOVE* that there are 27 ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street' movies despite all being "telegraphed" by the first film's 90-second trailer. The setting is good, the dialogue is so painfully realistic that everyone I talked with insisted that it had to be largely improvised or changed from shot to shot; and if the "commentary" bothers you, then ask yourself what commentary the ‘Friday the 13th' movies offer beyond Reaganomics and "the kids are acting up and are going to kill themselves with The Pot." Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/21/24 Full Review Jeremy Average. The dialogue was awkward on purpose. The ending is telegraphed pretty much 10 minutes into it but it was still entertaining enough. Would've worked better with no name actors and as an arthouse film that dug into the lore. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/10/24 Full Review Ken B Wow. This was so boring! Literally just…dialogue. Just the dude babbling on about nothing. No action. No suspense. No nothing! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/22/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Peter Bradshaw Guardian This feels like something LaBute wrote in an afternoon on the notes app on his smartphone while thinking about something else. Rated: 1/5 Oct 4, 2022 Full Review Noel Murray Los Angeles Times While the material here is thin and largely predictable (aside from one great jump scare), the cast is outstanding and the dialogue is snappy, delivered at a brisk pace. Sep 16, 2022 Full Review Peter Sobczynski RogerEbert.com An intriguing and occasionally quite witty battle of the sexes, in which not all of the bloodshed is strictly metaphorical. Rated: 3.5/4 Sep 9, 2022 Full Review Matt Pais MattPais.com A screen saver posing as a movie, with a dead-end plot merely killing time before, um, killing time. Rated: C- Jun 12, 2023 Full Review Jordy Sirkin Jordy Reviews It HOUSE OF DARKNESS takes a famous gothic horror tale in a new direction as a slightly comical examination of modern dating and misogynistic culture. Jan 26, 2023 Full Review John Serba Decider There’s potential in this marriage of modern sexual dynamics and classic horror, but this chamber piece is like a 100-room mansion populated by three people: much less than half-empty.
