The Horror of Housekeeping

Housekeeping

I’ve been a fan of After Dark Originals since 2006 and the release of the 8 Films To Die For: After Dark Horrorfest. ADO’s movies were/are smarter than the craptacular stuff that often clogs my DVD player and more often than not, powerful films (Wicked Little Things/2006, Lake Mungo/2008, Dread/2009) that stuck to your brain long after dark. Heh.

Sinister

Housekeeping, the latest After Dark Original, lands in your DVD player/brain on March 31, 2015. Despite the less-than-enticing title (and the fact the cover art mirrors Sinister/2012) and the bland synopsis, I put my horror trust in AD as they’ve never let me down. So here’s what they’re pitching…

Housekeeping follows Lucy, a medical student who takes a housekeeping job in order to make some quick cash. The almost-too-convenient new job soon takes a turn for the worse as Lucy’s haunting past emerges and she begins to lose her grip on reality.”

Ugh – they really need to get a better copywriter. That sounds like something I’d write. But no gooning out; ADO has a great horror track record. Unlike me and my horror clogged brain/DVD player.
