Open House horror surprising cast

TriciaHelfer.jpgI'm surprised at the cast of this horror film Open House, especially considering the look of it and that it's going to DVD, not to a cinematic release, it doesn't suggest the interesting mixed cast that you see in the trailer.

Who am I talking about? Tricia Helfer, Brian Geraghty, Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Rachel Blanchard, then there's some recognisable television faces such as Jessica Collins and Larry Sullivan. How did that happen?

The film tells the story of a couple who are in the middle of a messy divorce and are selling their house. During an open house the character of Tricia Helfer arrives and looks set to buy the house, until she tries to seduce the man in his own home, and then murders him.

Then she and her partner, played by Brian Geraghty, take over the home as their own, however Alice, played by Rachel Blanchard, the partner of the murdered man, is being held in the basement against her will, and to the knowledge of only one of the two house invaders. She's a rebellious secret against the other murderer, and soon her husband is not the only victim to them as her neighbours begin to disappear.

The trailer for Open House doesn't look like a high end production, and it's a wonder it's going direct to DVD with these names involved, until you see the name of the writer and director, Andrew Paquin.

So there's been some family love involved in the casting of Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, but to attract the other talent there has to be something more there.

Why don't you have a look at the trailer which comes through the excellent Quiet Earth and see what you think.



Funny Games?

Very good comparison. Same idea with plenty of good looking ladies.
