House (1986) – Steve Miner Horror Film (The Best Horror Movie You Never Saw)

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

Welcome to a new episode of The Best Horror Movie You Never Saw, where we take a look at some of the horror films of yore that don't get the love we think they deserve. This week we take a look at Steve Miner's House (WATCH OR OWN IT HERE) starring William Katt, George Wendt, Kay Lenz and Richard Moll.

After working together on the first three Friday the 13th movies, Steve Miner (who directed Friday the 13th Parts 2 and 3) and producer Sean S. Cunningham re-teamed for something a little more kooky. From a story by Fred Dekker and a screenplay by Ethan Wiley, House is a batshit insane comedic-horror movie that throws in more demons, ghosts and ghouls than you can handle. It's a really enjoyable one; the kind they just don't make anymore.

Roger Cobb is a Vietnam vet whose career as a horror novelist has taken a turn for the worse when his son Jimmy mysteriously disappears while visiting his aunt's house. Roger's search for Jimmy destroys his marriage and his writing career. The sudden death of his aunt brings Roger back to the house where his nightmares began. The evil zombies in the house force Roger to endure a harrowing journey into his past.

This episode was written by Eric Walkuski, Edited by Dustin Elkin and Narrated by Jason Hewlett. It was Produced by John Fallon and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.
