Lost and stranded, they are set upon by a bizarre family of psychotics. Murder, cannibalism and satanic rituals are just a few of the 1000+ horrors that await.

First-time director Zombie leans heavily on those cliched images of sadistic torture, death, isolation and destruction so familiar to anyone who has seen a few MTV heavy metal videos. He also eschews the teen-horror-genre formula of leaving the graphic violence to the imagination. Among the panoply of sick images in House, we see characters cut by a straight razor twice, a body carved with the words "Treat Trick" and a sickeningly suspenseful 10-second shot of a man executed point-blank, taken from an eerie birds-eye view. The often misfiring humor ("Goddam motherf#@# got blood all over my best clown suit") and hackneyed kids-seek-refuge-in-wrong-place-and-die plot wear thin. But Zombie's thirst to stimulate our gag reflex provides a Jackass-esque "what will he show next?" momentum to House that should make horror fans feel right at home.
