Audience Reviews for Open House

A good movie with a very interesting plot and very different ending. Some parts were a bit hard to follow but in the end a big "Oooohh" brings you to an understanding. The songs are catchy but I have heard better singing. Anthony Rapp does a wonderful job with his twisted character.

Parts of this were a silly sort of fun. However, the songs were rather off and some of the singing was quite bad. I like Anthony Rapp, but I think he was in a less than amazing movie.


Extremely low-budget but still fun. I probably won't watch it again, but it's silly in a good way. Some not-so-great singing from Kellie Martin, but Anthony Rapp is delightfully insane.
