Movie Info

A young girl searching for her missing sister makes a dark discovery at a remote, Catholic-run halfway house in this genre-jumping entry starring cult queen Mary Woronov (Rock 'n' Roll High School and Eating Raoul). It seems that lately quite a few girls have gone missing at the Mary Magdalen Halfway House for Troubled Girls, and when Larissa Morgan (Janet Tracy Keijser) learns that her sister is one of the unlucky few to disappear, she signs herself into the institution in hopes of uncovering the truth. Quickly discovering that all is not as it seems within the ominous confines of the halfway house, Larissa must overcome a terrifying supernatural force from beyond this dimension in order to escape with her life and ensure that no other young girls meet the same grim fate as her sister.

I liked it in the guilty pleasure sense, and in spite of being really bad, it's also really entertaining...

Audience Reviews for The Halfway House

Most B-movies can only dream of achieving the greatness that this film achieves with ease. The secret to it's success it obvious: lots of gore, nudity, campy special effects and out-of-the-blue lesbian overtones. How could it go wrong? There's unintentional humor of course, but the real surprise here is that there are a lot of intentional laughs as well. Mary Woronov is a queen of the B-movies, and here she shows why with a wonderfully wacked-out performance. Most of the rest of the cast are just pretty faces who look great naked but first-time actress Janet Tracy Keyser shows some promise in the lead role. Director Kenneth J. Hall keeps things light and moving, and he doesn't take things too seriously. The film avoids all the pitfalls most made-for-video movies wallow in, and I had fun.
