A young Brooklyn couple whose relationship is on the rocks heads upstate to a remote B&B to work things out. The plan is ill conceived from the start.

Critic Reviews for The Happy House
The film, a sleepy, low-budget affair, merely enacts a series of horror movie clichés, as if that were enough. Its bland actors and wit-free script do nothing with the familiar elements but present them.
The only surprises in D.W. Young's tiny low-budget debut are how mildly he satirizes this thinnest of genres and how sincerely he treats his clichéd characters.
Wonderfully droll horror comedy with a memorably weird cast of characters.
"The Happy House" is nothing if not a fresh mixture of colorful characters, questionable manners, and rusty, suddenly-new-again horror conventions.
