House II: The Second Story (1987)

1st View
Format: DVD
Venue: Rivendell (Kayla Kromer's Birthday Celebration)

The great thing about being a limitless film lover is that the opportunity for glorious discovery is similarly limitless. I had heard of this film in a very ephemeral way throughout my life, but had never seen it. It is an amazing feat of b-movie filmmaking that actually combines at least 4 bad films into one. I loved every wild, pretense-free moment of it. There is a scene in this film that I had seen as a kid that had haunted me ever since and for YEARS I had tried to trace its origins. House II was therefore not only a fantastic guilty pleasure, but also a truly transcendent experience.

Rating: 8/10 Atkins
