Audience Reviews for Madhouse


I gave this one a second look recently, and I was surprised to see how negative my initial review was, as the film has some interesting mood built from the creepy building in which it's set, as well as the use of lighting that gives it a uniquely European feel.

There is amazing use of a dog puppet that made me crack up laughing, so be prepared for some silliness in the last reel, but that aside, there's some fun hammy performances here from the guy playing the lead's uncle, as well as her goofy-ass lover.

Worth a rental.

What weighs this down is the lack of direction right after the great, great opening. It just becomes too uninteresting and doesn't reach any of its full potential.
