Writer-director Derek Nguyen's supernatural thriller settles confidently in a place between classy and trashy.
A tonally calamitous mélange that's nonetheless compelling for its absence of caution.
Although not particularly original in its recycling of familiar genre tropes, the stylish film should well satisfy horror aficionados while engaging more general audiences as well.
A good-looking but overstuffed genre pileup that confuses as often as it compels.
An aimless exercise in dismal, scattershot PG-13 theatrics, the film builds clunkily towards a climactic reveal that is much more likely to elicit an indifferent grunt than a gasp.
Derek Nguyen's feature debut is a horror whose duplicitous gothic taps right into the contradictions of colonialism.
The Housemaid fails to transcend its tried and tested horror roots with a derivative effort that is short both on scares and drama.
If you've been feeling a bit ho-hum about supernatural movies as of late, I'd recommend giving The Housemaid a try. It may just surprise you as much as it did this writer.
The Housemaid may not be as original as it pretends, but if you like haunted houses, creepy women in black, tragic romance, sinister secrets and dark and stormy nights, you'll find it very satisfying.
For the same effect, try watching the fire channel, while listening to The Exorcist soundtrack and spraying water in your face.
