Getting trapped inside a basement has got to suck, especially when the person keeping you down there is a psychopath. Then again, would anyone other than a psychopath keep people locked away in a basement? Gabriel Carrer’s horror offering “In the House of Flies” may not sport the most original premise on the planet, but the director’s penchant for striking visuals and uncomfortable imagery immediately separates it from the cinematic herd.
Though I recommend reading the synopsis, it isn’t required:
In the House of Flies tells the story of young lovers whose lives are inadvertently changed forever. An innocent couple, Heather (Lindsay Smith) and Steve (Ryan Kotack), suddenly find themselves abducted. By whom? For what purpose? Alone, isolated, and locked in an undisclosed, suburban basement, Heather and Steve find themselves pawns in a psychological mind game with their diabolical hosts.
Surrounded by several mysterious and locked suitcases – each containing valuable clues to their very own survival – Heather and Steve must exploit what remains of their bruised intellect and depleting sanity to escape the authority of their unidentified and brutal abductors (Rollins and Barrett). From this day forward, summer was never the same.
If you’re a fan of Henry Rollins, you should definitely check out “In the House of Flies”. Wanna know why? Because he’s in it! That’s crazy! When you think your heart can withstand the terror, the trailer is lurking somewhere down below.
