Critic Reviews for The Seasoning House

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (1)

The film's downbeat switchback ending is neither convincing nor earned.

While lead actress Rosie Day turns in a phenomenal performance, The Seasoning House is more bite than bark, creating an uneven and empty watch.

We Got This Covered

An expertly crafted thriller and manages to show a heartfelt side of the issue.

CraveOnline

It's atmospheric and a tense journey, arguably not unlike Gravity if you were to replace the vacuum of space with a bunch of angry, accented dudes

Topless Robot

The whole thing is laugh-out-loud dumb.

This is London

Hyett earned his reputation as a prosthetics wiz on films like The Descent and The Woman in Black; the human monsters he gives us here might as well be made out of cardboard.

Audience Reviews for The Seasoning House

Dull, depressing, deadening and dragging rubbish.

Bleak, depressing and not easy to watch, The Seasoning House tells the story of a young girl who is held captive in a run down house in the middle of the woods run by what you assume to be some kind of Russian mafia dude, preparing captured girls for nights of sexual abuse at the hands of, well, whatever lowlife shows up it seems. After watching her mother get killed in a brutal shooting, the girl, Angel, has no option but to comply but after making friends with one of the captured girls who she then witnesses get killed, Angel turns into a vengeful badass and uses the insides of the walls to get around the house and get revenge on those around her.
I'm usually up for films that make you feel some emotion, anything, even if its dark and fucked up(usually that actually, being a horror fan!), but The Seasoning House is not that likeable and i'm not sure if its the raw and gritty feel, which i'm use to, or the dodgy Russian accents, particularly Sean Pertwee("She's got my gun". No Sean, it's actually your knife!) or I simply can't find any positives from this film. Rosie Day was good as young mute, Angel, though, that's about it. Pertwee's death is horrible enough but if you're even slightly claustrophobic then don't bother! A tough watch that big fans of torture porn might enjoy but that's about it, I'm afraid.

quite an unpleasant experience, it doesn't get harder to watch than seeing girls get doped up and then raped, and with another girl forced to prepare them, ill give credit in that the sets looks super grungy, and the actors do a good job being evil as the villains, and the main girl makes you feel for her despite not talking at all, but it's a very tough movie to watch
