This House Possessed is without a doubt, my all time favorite made for television movie ever. EVER. Yet, I have not written about it on my blog. I've reviewed it elsewhere (read my reviews here and here), watched it a gazillion times and have told anyone in ear distance just how much I love this uber-atmospheric and utterly ambiguous horror film. And it's not just because Parker Stevenson is the hottest thing since Jermaine Stewart made me realize that I didn't have to take my clothes off to have a good time (oh no). It's simply because this is one damn good movie. As a kid, I was forever haunted by Tanya's blood shower and completely entranced by Sheila's yellow wardrobe. House taught me that in a world of creepy haunted houses you could still find love with a gorgeous pop star. House made me who I am today (take it as you will). This Amanda Obsessed! Whoops, I mean Possessed!
One of the things I adore about House is that you never know exactly why the house does what it does. You know it watches Gary before he moves in, but you're never quite sure how he got him to the house, nor do you know why it chose Gary. I mean, why did it want the sexy rock singer to fall in love with Sheila (and vice versa) when the house itself was in love with her? And why did it attack Gary less viciously when he did Sheila wrong? I don't know. And in some ways I'm glad I don't. House is a movie that has more questions than answers. It's a freaking riddle wrapped up in an enigma (how I have always wanted to say that!) and if you're open to these kinds of films, House will leave you considering every option. It's the movie that keeps on giving!
And it will leave you wanting to say "Don't get so frosted!" Trust me, it will! But for now, I'll leave you with an image gallery (most of these were used for one of my reviews on another site) for the best undiscovered movie going!
