House Hunting: May The Best Family WIN?!:
(Title LINK is English)
"Upon entering a desert farmhouse, two families discover that every attempt to leave takes them right back in. Stuck in purgatory, they are haunted by the home's former owner, who declares only one clan will be able to call the house their home. " ~ House Hunting (2013)
HQ Thoughts: "This film started out simple enough with 2 families out looking for a new home. They are both, one way or another, made aware of a 70 acre farmhouse right on the outskirts of town by the owner, who is also looking to a move of some sort. One family (with their son whose leg is broken) go to the location, beautiful home- amazing space and no one is there to help except some voice boxes apparently telling the story of each room in the house. No real estate agent, nothing.
The 2nd family arrives (with the daughter) shortly after and debate, leaving the other family with the choice to buy. They decide to leave. After making the initial attempt, they end up crashing into a battered and bruised girl whose tongue was cut out. Bad signs ASAP!
Just like any normal family, person, animal- they grab the girl and make a run for it, only thing is that every time they drive away, before they even get to the highway, they end up back in front of the house. The weird voice box is yapping away and I'm totally freaked by now. Different concept, refreshing.
Movie seems to over extend itself in the acting department, feels like everyone strained their part but I'm not here to deter you from what can potentially be a good horror night. This had me walking away satisfied. The movie is a mind catcher. I liked it!"
