A HOUSE IS NOT A HOME REVIEWED
“A House Is Not A Home” is a great attempt at making horror outside of typical norms. It’s about time that minorities got to experience the same tired haunted house stories. Well, the same stories that don’t feature Marlon Wayans mugging for the camera. Eddie Steeples and Diahnna Nicole Baxter provide strong acting in a film that needed. While I would’ve like to have seen the material flipped on its head, I appreciate the semi-serious nature of the piece.
I can see potential viewers going into the film expecting something else. Honestly, curb that. Enjoy an indie horror film that does its best to rise above what it could be. Just be ready for a film that should be paired with something like Abby on a Halloween night.
