Audience Reviews for Boarding House


Imagine if you will watching a relative's home movies from the the early 80's.

Now add blood and cheesy gore.

Then boobs.

And there ya go. A shot on VHS (maybe 3/4") home movie that gets points for originality and a less than subtle mimicry of John Carpenter's early music (albeit well done) but that's it.

And stupid me bought it because I couldn't see it any other way. Any offers?

Okay, according to all the behind the scenes stuff on the OOP Code Red DVD release, this was shot as a parody, then the company handling the release decided that it was a serious horror film, which goes a long way towards explaining what I just watched, which was largely confusing and weird. Now don't get me wrong, there's a certain earnest charm to the idea of this new age-y weirdo landlord hanging around with a bunch of nubile tenants by his pool all day, but it does get pretty silly and confusing at times.

Worth a look with beer and friends.

Good soundtrack. A couple of good gore scenes. Otherwise . . . well, I was ready to give this a 1 1/2 for trying but then watched the extra features and they admitted that they were not trying and were actually making it to "make fun" of genre movies. So they are not just bad actors but pompous as well.
