Movie Info

In this slice-n-dicer acclaimed pop psychologist Dr. David Kelley hosts a radio call-in show in LA. The current topic of discussion is a baffling series of murders that has been occurring throughout the town. All of the victims are beautiful real estate agents. One day he gets a strange call from "Harry," who claims that each of the victims deserved everything they got, because he believes that the real estate agents encourage the further displacement of the poor and homeless. He also describes their murders in detail. When the calls become more frequent, Dr. Kelley becomes even more concerned. He should be because his own lady love is a real estate agent. The film features considerable gore, nudity and simulated sex.more

Audience Reviews for Open House


So this homeless guy is tired of not owning a home and is willing to kill for one. Sounds like California right now.
From what I can tell, the moral of the story is: we should beat and kill the homeless.

A horror film that is unique and different from any other slasher film. For one it is set on the streets on Los Angeles and the killer himself differs from the classic slashers as he doesn't wear a mask but is more of a homeless looking guy.


Okay, first and foremost, this is a pretty terrible movie, and I've rated it on its merit as a film. That said, the enjoyment you may find could be much greater than this rating would suggest, as the movie is filled with such piss-poor editing and plotting that you may easily get some laughs and have fun poking fun with your buddies.

This is definitely one of those 'your mileage may vary' situations, so proceed with caution unless you knwo what you're getting into.
