I remember the start of this being fairly slow but once the horror/comedy stuff started popping off it really just went for it.

When I was little I was always fascinated by the cover of the VHS tape whenever I saw it at the video store. Pretty good comedic horror film.

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.

This film used to be played all the time on network TV weekend afternoons back in the 80's so i've seen it more times than I care to remember. It's not completely horrible and it's campy enough to be entertaining. I remember the Vietnam flashbacks as being pretty cheesy though. Miner films are totally conventional with student film like beats but they work simply because it's so cheesy.

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!

Genuinely creepy as I recall, but still very pretentious and dry in several parts, holding this back from a higher score.

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.

I'd like to see a sequel that has William Katt and George Wendt get a tv show on PBS where they renovate and restore old haunted houses.

Not funny enough to be a comedy, and not scary enough to be a horror film. This film feels like that of a bygone era I can imagine that someone who watched it 30 years ago would still love it today. Anyone else? Doubtful.

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.

Bizarre and cheesy. If it was supposed to be more of a comedy than a horror I would say it's a basic success. If it's trying to be more of a horror than it probably should have been written in a way where any character used any logic whatsoever at any given point.

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.
