Movie Info

Eleven-year-old Charlotte Burke, the neglected daughter of Ben Cross and Glenne Headley, passes out on the school playground and dreams of visiting a house she'd previously drawn in her composition book. She imagines another visit to her "paper house" while playing hide-and-seek. Experimenting, Burke draws a figure in the window of the house; the next time she dreams, she meets a young boy, as lonely as she. Convinced that she wields a large degree of power in her pencil, Burke draws a picture of her father, Cross, hoping that in doing so he will return home. But Burke is dissatisfied with the picture, and crosses it out--whereupon Cross shows up in her dreams as a murderous stalker. What happens next is a maelstrom of psychological horror, told completely from the child's point of view. Paperhouse is based on Marianne Dreams a novel by Catherine Storr.

Audience Reviews for Paperhouse

A drawing that became a dream. A dream that became reality. I think there is a tiny bit of a message hidden in a movie. It is a Unique Movie, unlike the movie House of Cards I enjoyed this a tiny bit more.

This was hugely distrubing to a ten year old boy when I watched it. Extremely odd little story but one that has stuck with me until now.

An eerie dreamscape of a movie. A girl draws pictures of a house on paper, and it becomes a place she can visit. Soon she is drawing other things which she can interact with. It's dark rather than fanciful. An experience.
