Movie Info

This lurid, shot-on-video splatter epic centers on a suburban home with a gory past, purchased by a swinging psychic hedonist with a fascination for the occult who immediately turns the place into a decadent all-girl boarding house. No sooner do his nubile tenants begin stripping down for the pool, shower, or bed before a black-clad interloper begins chopping, stabbing, gouging and sawing them to bits. With a budget approaching the 3-digit mark, this sex and gore fiesta is nonetheless enthusiastic in its desire to throw an amazing amount of stage blood and sheep intestines at the viewer, and features an amusing, William Castle-type gimmick effect (described in an appropriately spooky intro voiceover as "Horrorvision") which flashes multicolored lights whenever a gory scene is about to take place.

Audience Reviews for Boarding House

½

Imagine if you will watching a relative's home movies from the the early 80's. Now add blood and cheesy gore. Then boobs. And there ya go. A shot on VHS (maybe 3/4") home movie that gets points for originality and a less than subtle mimicry of John Carpenter's early music (albeit well done) but that's it. And stupid me bought it because I couldn't see it any other way. Any offers?
