"House on sale" — weak film debut of a young Director Matt angel. The first thing that catches the eyes, the abundance of the various clichés inherent in the genre of horror.

The Director is absolutely not creative the methods of interaction on the viewer. If you close your eyes to the templates contact the story, and then the viewer will be disappointed. The plot is scant on any turns. The second half of the film with hope for some justification of events. Hope to the most recent frames. In my mind the following thought: "it Can I am a fool not understand cunning mnogohodovochku Director and now all will become clear". But no, clearly not getting the last hope goes along with titles. And after the credits comes the disappointment that you guys Netflix have made this tape on the audience. The only thing like, this beautiful picture and landscapes surrounding the main location.

Over the past few years the Internet service Netflix has done everything possible to the conquest of spectator sympathies. From "Very strange doings" up to "OCCHI" full creative freedom and active work with the celebrities were Netflix just for the favor. But where there is triumph, there is always a place to fail. Hardly Studio bosses went to the greed and decided to strike while the iron is hot. Just the problems are all, Netflix has this project became the "House for sale" — an intense Thriller / horror film with a very uneven and immature storytelling. The thing that when it comes to generate a tension for the viewer, all that need a good horror film — find the right balance of fear, story add-ons, and secret. In  the"House for sale" there anything that, and despite the authors ' desire to do something memorable, the picture came out the unbalanced tone.

In the "House on sale" the focus is on the history of mother and son trying to investigate strange happenings in his new home. For many minimalist films like this the story goes plus as it allows you to explore the relationship between mother and son, and to make the viewer fear the creaking floorboards, chilling interior and so on. But "House on sale" never goes to the most likely topic relations and creepy atmosphere, preferring to focus on paranoia.

And then the issue occurs. First, a tiny group of secondary characters added to the movie just because of what the effect of paranoia is not as follows. All the side characters added only for in order to fill the time, but not to be potential suspects. Second, if we exclude the "family" storyline, then a common scenario in  the"House" is just awful. In General everything here has pitched so as the film does not develop one. At first it a supernatural Thriller, then "home invasion". With house something is not right? Or there lives a stranger? It is the right approach, which confuses the viewer confused, Yes, like him back. Instead of feeling a pleasant confusion in the moments of revealing the secret, here is a feeling that you just cheated, and in a bad way. The ending, which was in the idea to put everything in the places, so do kill all idea of the film.

Add to this the modest psychological bias, the picture is absolutely unnecessary, and, of course, the elements of a slasher. Too many things put at the forefront of one of the project, and the filmmakers did not were talented people, so that even special prerequisites for the slaughter, the creators do not asked. If other film "home invasion" is pushed so story, explaining the incomprehensible motives of the killers, the same welcome to  'Home' is doubly offensive: causes of torture like there, but they are explained properly.

With the point of view of implementation, in  the"House on sale" there are several good plans, for example, in the basement. However, the lack of story and uninteresting interchange at the root jammed every impulse, for example, from good music.

It's hard not to appreciate the efforts of the creators of the film, but like you know, only one will not succeed. A few nods in the direction of classics like "the Shining" or"Psycho" show at least awareness of the authors. What cannot be forgiven so this is a common cheap quality performances and overuse of genre clichés: from the familiar disturbing music, which has makes the blood flow of the ear to the shaking of the camera. The initial hope that "House for sale" is a tense and thrilling movie, quickly destroyed, leaving the rest amateurish a project with poor a complex story and underdeveloped characters.

Overall impression: How a crazy movie that I'm it found only one cons!!! Let's order:

Heroes — mother the son, because of lack of money to move in the sister's house, which is on display at sale 1 times a week people come with the ability to evaluate and buy a house (of course, the mansion somewhere in muhoroni!) Usually in horror films the characters often behave illogically, but it! OOO! It is a storehouse of hopeless idiocy. You imagine the house I go people are different and there is in the store will be released already meet abnormal personalities, and here home run hither to God knows who! Mansion after watching no one checks our heroes live in peace on. And gone/not gone, people — NOT IMPORTANT. things are Missing, have some items "grow legs" and they magically move around and everything is fine! So see a must have! In a dark basement maze-hear the knocks, but this is the norm! If the son is still has 4% of the brain, the mother not on his head! In the loss of things she is blaming the son, but that there are scenes that indicate otherwise.

moronic good-Natured old lady, a mechanic, a chocolate man — the tape is present characters: the roommate seachem??? What does it show? The neighborhood? It that wets enemies on their beds? The character is absurd and the unsolved, her presence the film only suggests the thought that the Director has done something stupid. Plumber — appears frame 2 minutes, which already thinking it on tramp home?! Oh, this Director, it direction as necessary, we are trying to confuse, he have it in your creation of unwanted characters, not have attributed to them the character that we guess who is stealing toilet paper at the night! Chocolate man — the Negro that drives to the character, but something ridiculous and strange. Again do not hit the balancing fear, because of the absurdities the movie looks lame, boring, scary, funny and I want each hero to be slapped on the cabbage soup! Characters added just so "Ahh, and so will descend!"

Clichés/stereotyped: you have no idea how I spat at the viewing. All because of a cliche here just the whole plot consists of stereotypes. Ends frame and we know we are waiting on. Originality 0! And know the hero has glasses, he sees very bad. Well, you understand, right? He they will be wasted. Tape impregnated with stereotyped from 1 frame and to the last. Have clearly, there is a house on the way someone walks, the sounds of groaning, that everything often next! Fu, fu, fu.

run hither man or man-rod (as you like): is Unclear for what reasons I got a man-rod in the feed he makes house, clear principles he needed. Villain unsolved, as and all feed.

Ending: Is just how do not remove the horror movies! The finale shows us that whatever you watched, most importantly, we used all the your hand to push — illogical obtuse characters, formulaic plot, unnecessary characters. The script was written in a hurry and anyhow and the big word here is Netflix stained this type-horror.

recommend Not to watch and waste time, useless plot no nothing leads. And the intrigue, though is in the beginning of the tape, gradually comes to no!
