House of Darkness (2022). House of Darkness: Directed by Neil LaBute. With Justin Long, Kate Bosworth, Gia Crovatin, Lucy Walters. Justin Long and Kate Bosworth star in this seductive thriller from director Neil LaBute (The Wicker Man). Driving home to her secluded estate after meeting at a local bar, a player out to score thinks his beautiful, mysterious date will be another casual hook-up. While getting acquainted, their flirtation turns playful, sexy and sinister. Hoping to get lucky, his luck may have just run out.
“The movie begins with a great Gothic opening that set the tone, and we get a great many other Gothic mainstays, like full moons, looming castles, and bloofer ladies. The movie takes on a couple of interesting Gothic horror themes that I canu0026#39;t talk about without spoiling the story, and I thought Justin and Kate had nice chemistry. Some of the dialogue did feel stretched and I think they could have added one or two events to get the movie to 90 minutes without having the characters conversing in circles.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you, like me, enjoy Gothic horror with emphasis on the Gothic youu0026#39;re probably pretty starved. House of Darkness is not a three course meal, but will see you over until the next re-watch of Crimson Peak.”
