House Next Door

Isolationism and false security are as much the targets of the '88 model blob as hobos and horny jocks.

An old story retold with a fresh voice, eager to make improvements where they're needed and unwilling to tamper with scenes that don't.

A fun, cheesy remake from writer Frank Darabont, who gets the tone just right.

| Original Score: 3/5

While not nearly on par with the original, the remake's a fast-paced and happily gore-soaked little treat.

| Original Score: 4/5

Reel Film Reviews

...a horror movie that manages to be scary, funny, suspenseful and even a parody of other horror movies.

Modest, disposable remake of a less-than-classic original... but dammit, evil Jell-O is still so cool!
