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.
