Surprises, dismays and unsettles--pretty good for a movie that went straight to video.

Audience Reviews for Grandmother's House

When the mysterious lady with the guitar didn't flinch as the bus carrying the two teen stars of this thriller almost runs into her in the middle of the road, I couldn't take my eyes off the TV. While the film never played in the theaters, it played on cable for some time, and is now available on DVD. It features excellent performances by the two leads, Eric Foster and Kim Valentine, and a scary performance from Brinke Stevens. The plot concerns 2 orphaned siblings who go to live with their grandparents somewhere in Redlands, California, only to find that there are some very sinister secrets and happenings on their citrus farm. Grandparents are played by Ida Lee and Len Lesser (Seinfeld's TV father). There are some gaps in logic along the way, and some scenes, while tense, are confusing as to their purpose, but overall, there are some very natural moments, some humor, and some shocking scenes, and an interesting ending, adding up to a very satisfying thriller, with restraint as to unnecessary gore, making this one of my very favorite films in this genre. An unexpected and little known treasure.

"Grandma's House" has some thrillig moments BUT it has too many plot holes and illogical situations that are hard to overlook. Enjoyable mess!
