Eclectic Rating: stars
Decent cinematography and generally good filmmaking notwithstanding, this film was a let down. Though I did have some empathy for the characters early on there were many moments that I wasn't convinced of the actors' sincerity.
Slow moving, uninteresting developments and weird distractions that never pan out into anything truly sinister. And the intro seemed like a poor rip-off of Disturbia.
My wife and watched The Open House because the trailer looked enticing. Actually looked like it would be a good thriller. Nope. We were let down and walked away wondering why we sat through it until the very disappointing end.
I was hoping for better with this one because I really haven't been too far let down by a Netflix Original, until now.
