Despite a decent premise, the pic's pedestrian execution and uninvolving characters make it a passable time-filler at best.

Isn't satisfying as a whole, with exciting pieces of the production hinting at a stronger film under a different creative direction.

Audience Reviews for Stash House

This film is made out to be an action film but to me it felt more like a thriller really. The whole idea is kinda similar to the film 'Panic Room' accept the panic room in this is the whole house.

The plot is simple yet not entirely well thought out either. A young couple buy a large house (which seems completely out of their league frankly) and are just about to move in. After some snooping they find a huge quantity of heroine stashed away (oh STASH house I get it hehehehehe), almost immediately the criminals that own the drugs turn up and start to terrorise them.

The thing is I still am not entirely sure what they are really trying to achieve. It turns out they don't want the drugs but are in fact after something else. Obviously I can't say but even when we do discover what they are after there is no real reason for it. There is naturally big dealings behind all this with big mob boss fatcats pulling the strings but the plot to me felt very shallow, almost as if its just an excuse to have some cool thriller action sequences inside a cool house/mansion.

Dolph turns in a good performance I must admit, he certainly has grown from his straight to DVD crapola he used to churn out. This film is a much better vehicle clearly with good production values and some care behind its creation. All the scenes look quite slick and moody with great lighting, the action gets pretty intense and bloody and the other lesser known cast do a good job (even though the female lead is really annoying when she cries).

Its not grade A stuff of course, there are issues here and there, the ending is particularly daft...tonnes of police at the scene yet no one is noticing what's going on by the ambulance? and where is the crew?. Better than the fluff you might be expecting that's for sure but end of the day the whole plot makes no sense really. Why on earth didn't the criminals just do what they wanted to do before the house was sold?! it just seems like they give themselves a lot of hard work.

It`s Hostage meets Panic Room and it totally kicks some ass. A hard-edged and adrenaline-pumping thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat with action, excitement, thrills and suspense. Dolph Lungdren is terrific, he gives his best villain performance since the original Universal Soldier. Lungdren is perfectly menacing and compelling. Sean Faris and Briana Evigan are exceptional. A sharply crafted film from Director, Eduardo Rodriguez. A gripping and well-paced thriller that's packs lots of tricks and surprises around every corner.
