I received an e-mail from filmmaker Erik L. Wilson asking me to check out his short film entitled House Call, which I did. And I must say, I was suitably impressed.
Four months after the "mysterious death" of her abusive husband Dave, the adorable Janice is shacked up with her lover Steve. Janice's paranoia turns out to be justified fear when Dave's witchy mother--who is supposed to be locked up in an asylum--lurking around the house.
And that's when things get really weird.
A supernatural horror film with genuinely creepy moments and atmosphere for days, House Call has a little something for everyone--including sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. Well, if you consider red wine a drug, and what appears to be a Creed cover band rock 'n' roll.
Regardless of the questionable musical choices, and occasionally too-dim lighting, it was a great little flick with special effects that surpass the majority of indie horror on the shelves today.
I wish I could offer you a link to view the whole film, but it's password protected for the foreseeable future while it makes the rounds at film festivals. In the meantime, here's the official trailer to whet your appetite.
