Ten teens decide to have a party at an abandoned funeral parlor called Hull House. Hull House is on a strip of land rumored to be unclean and unfit for human inhabitance. The house has a nasty history to it including a the Hull family being murdered. After the ten kids enter the house they decide to have a séance. After an attempt for the séance they awaken a demon that lives in the basement. It possesses one of the girls then from her everyone else becomes possessed and killed by demons that inhabit the land.
Who is in it? Billy Gallo and Amelia Kinkade
Was it scary? Meh…
Would this movie be for every horror fan? Yes.
Should you see it? Sure you should!
First thing’s first, the acting was terrible! The movie itself is good don’t get me wrong but the acting is like… friggin bad. The first scene you see is the popular yet “good” girl taking off her panties and walking around bare-ass which sort of sends mixed signals because her character from that moment forward would fit in perfectly in ‘Leave it to Beaver’. There is this crotchety old man that hates kids and plans on jamming razor blades in apples. Did I mention this is Halloween Night? Because that is apparently important.
Suzanne: Do you guys have sour balls?
Convenience Store Clerk: Why sure we do.
Suzanne: Too bad. I bet you don’t get many blow jobs.
A group of teens in costumes are going to this long since abandoned yet reportedly haunted funeral parlor called ‘Hull House’. The party had the perfect collection of all the teen stereotypes, we have a gothic outcast, a blonde slut, a good girl, a cool kid, a fat punker, a popular boy that’s most likely a jock, a token black guy, and even a super hot Asian girl. The cool kid with the mullet in the blue scrubs knows every shred of history about Hull house for whatever reason and wastes no time rambling for tens of minutes at a time about the ghosts not being able to cross running water and blah blah blah. So the kids are partying and out of nowhere one of the old cremation ovens open to reveal an invisible demon that runs to the kids and possesses the slutty girl, and terror ensues.
The demons all have the same totally crappy voice, and the acting really IS terrible, but the movie itself has a certain charm to it. The movie really does have some moments you didn’t see coming like the slutty girl shoving a tube of lipstick in her boob. Like, seriously who saw that coming lol. Another thing I thought for sure that was going to happen was the death of the black guy, but he survived! The whole idea is that demons are able to escape hell on Halloween night so they have to stick it out till morning or scale the brick wall because the demons can’t cross a stream thats underground. The good girl and the black guy climb the wall just barely escaping their zombie friends and walk home. The crabby old man and the plan involving razor apples backfires when he eats an apple pie that his wife made from the apples, killing him in an ironic death. I rate this movie a 7/10 for it’s undefinable charm and hilariously terrible acting.
