This opens as a straight-forward, if mostly ineffectual, chiller, cluttered with grim 'Nam flashbacks, before careening into broad comedy and finally collapsing into a failed EC Comics-styled gruefest.

Not bad for some 80's cheese. If you're into corny 80's comedy/horror, this is definitely worth a viewing. Norm from Cheers gives and Oscar worthy performance as the annoying next door neighbor.

Some funny parts in this horror-comedy but it focuses on horror more than the comedy. This is a bad move because it's not scary as it intends to be but when it wants to be funny, it is. As with a lot of films from the 80's it's packed with trademark 80's style which can be good, if you enjoy that kind of campy style, or it can be bad if it's not your bag. Some of it's surreal elements are interesting but I be lying if I said I wanted to see this film more than once.

If the entire film were as ridiculous and over-the-top as the last five minutes, House could have been a very entertaining experience. However, it's mostly a hodgepodge of lifeless cliches that don't merit reexamination.

Stronger than Fred Dekker's other '86 effort 'Night of the Creeps' in that it better meets the two criteria of a horror comedy.

having had pioneered the comedy/horror genre it hardly is logical to give this a regular score (70's) so thus i must give it a better one, especially since i will watch this movie at least once per year.

House is a very casual horror movie. It takes a lot of time to be funny and relaxed while spreading the horror elements across the film leading it to a hardly climactic, but fine ending. Meh!

Doesn't really work as either a horror or a comedy. The most frightening part of the whole movie is the fact that the blonde neighbor didn't bat an eye when our main character chased her two year old son into a bathroom, from which room said child emerged VISIBLY SHAKEN and CRYING. And then she just leaves the kid with the dude all night. What the fuck are you thinking, lady?!

Steven King ruined the whole "troubled writer haunted by his past" story with...pretty much every single story he's ever written. Add to that some goofy monster design and a story that bounces about more than a superball in a baby buggy, and one might think this movie was destined for the red tiers. Why the 70, then? Easy. It stars Bull from Night Court as a rotting Vietnam vet zombie and Norm from Cheers as...well, Norm.

More comedy than horror but, at the same time, not really funny either. Probably would've been better with all George Wendt and no William Katt.

Slick-looking but hopelessly juvenile haunted house comedy. Full of rubbery monsters and flat humor (though Wendt is amusing as a nosy neighbor), this film is a clutter of disparate elements that never come together, yet it was somehow popular enough to inspire three sequels. Lenz is utterly wasted in the thankless role of Katt's bitchy ex-wife.

Lots of horror effects that don't hang together, but a quirky attitude, and a sense of humor, buoy things enough to make this moderately entertaining.
