The Seasoning House: where young girls are prostituted to the military. An orphaned deaf mute is enslaved to care for them. She moves between the walls and crawlspaces, showing the little kindnesses when she can. When fate brings the men that murdered her family and the reason she ended up in the whore house, a chain of events begins that will end her captivity, free the girls still alive in the house and grant her revenge on the soldiers that destroyed her life.

While lead actress Rosie Day turns in a phenomenal performance, The Seasoning House is more bite than bark, creating an uneven and empty watch.
An expertly crafted thriller and manages to show a heartfelt side of the issue.
It's atmospheric and a tense journey, arguably not unlike Gravity if you were to replace the vacuum of space with a bunch of angry, accented dudes
Hyett earned his reputation as a prosthetics wiz on films like The Descent and The Woman in Black; the human monsters he gives us here might as well be made out of cardboard.
It's cleverly made on a small budget, but is so over-designed and carefully structured that we never believe it.
A soulless horror thriller that fails to captivate thanks to a poor script and some terribly unconvincing performances from certain cast members.
This is a deeply unpleasant subject matter and Hyett's handling of it leaves a nasty taste in the mouth.
A horror film of two halves: the first squalid and hard to stomach, the second surreal and hard to take seriously.
The Seasoning House may ultimately feel as compromised and tainted as its heroine - but Hyett remains a rising talent to watch, especially if he can find a better script to match his uneasy vision and moody production design.
Goes from stark, sober horror to expeditious revenge thriller without missing a beat
