Critic Reviews:

Horror movies that exploit the economic anxieties of their times are always welcome, and Open House bases its entire concept on the difficulty of finding affordable housing in Los Angeles.


It’s certainly an interesting premise, and given a bit more polish Open House could have become a bigger slasher in the genre.


However, Open House is a very poor film on all counts. In fact, the idea of a radio talkshow host dealing with a phone-in psycho is almost entirely incidental to the slasher business, which director Jag Mundhra is clearly more interested in.
