The history of house's past owners is not an usual gimmick for an anthology film (Amicus' THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD for instance), and the Buffalo, New York-lensed THE PERFECT HOUSE continues this tradition with three progressively brutal if not particularly substantive vignettes - more a catalog of deaths than three short stories - featuring some welcome appearances by SLEEPAWAY CAMP's Felissa Rose and Jonathan Tiersten, and RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD's John Philbin. When Marisol (Andrea Vahl, FIRST TIMERS) and Mike (William A. Robertson, BLACK MARIGOLDS) pounce on the THE PERFECT HOUSE at a too-good-to-be-true price, they are more wary of how the sexpot realtor (Monique Parent, TENDER FLESH) may jack up the price than about the mysterious disappearances of the previous owner and the family next door. As they tour the house, we learn about its grisly history over three generations. First, a nuclear family self-destruct as dysfunctions and pathologies are revealed while taking shelter in the basement from "The Storm." The house's next owner (Tiersten) makes a kidnapping victim (Holly Greene) his captive audience and critic to the power tool-assisted butcherings and bludgeonings of a series of cage mates in "Chick-en." Longstanding resentments of the house's previous owner (Dustin Stevens) for the family next door come to a gory head over the failure to return a weed wacker in "Dinner Guest." Chris Raab (of MTV's VIVA LA BAM) appears in a coda sequence as another prospective buyer who feels an affinity for the house (particularly it's basement).

Comments

Wild Eye's dual-layer disc divides its space between a progressive, anamorphic encode of the HD-lensed feature and the "highlights" of a premiere Q&A - longer than the feature at one hundred and six minutes - as well as several shorter extras (indicative of its heavy online promotional campaign) as well as a different trailer from the one seen in the trailer section, an alternate ending (also featuring Chris Raab but entirely different rather than an extension or alternate edit), and trailers for other Wild Eye releases.
