MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “The Last House on Cemetery Lane” (2015)

 Just down the street from the House on Haunted Hill, around the corner from Hell House, and one block over from the Last House on the Left.

Just down the street from the House on Haunted Hill, around the corner from Hell House, and one block over from the Last House on the Left.

A struggling screenwriter takes a holiday rental on a large house in Wales in order to get past his writer’s block.  However, the house comes with a hitch:  there’s an old lady living on the attic floor.  She never goes out, she’s blind, and apparently she gets her nutrition from the air. It turns out the house (or something) is evil but because our “hero” is a dope, he decides to fight the scary house rather than demand a refund from his realtor.

Instead of this flick, I recommend Burnt Offerings (1976), which is so much better.  It’s essentially the same storyline — including the mysterious old lady in the attic that comes as part of the rental.  It’s directed by Dan Curtis and stars Oliver Reed and Karen Black.  And you know how I love me some Karen Black.  Oliver Reed, not so much.  I always thought he was kind of creepy.

 Sorry, this is NOT the one with the little Zuni doll that's trying to kill Karen Black.  That one is Trilogy of Terror.  But this is good, though, as Oliver Reed gets killed by a chimney.  Really!

So what was the K.C. knitting while watching this?

 Finally finished the socks, and now I'm binding off on a lace shawlette. Whee!
