House II: The Second Story (1987)

Being a huge fan of the first House (1986) I knew I had to see the sequel. I've just been so booked up that I haven't had the opportunity to watch it until now. So going in I was very excited to see what the second chapter of this series would bring us...

Was it entertaining? Yes. Was it disapointing? Yes. Did I like it? No.

I felt that they cashed in on the spoof way more than necessary in this one while forgetting one main and very important thing: The first House did have alot of humor, yes, but it was still scary which this one wasn't at all. It was Waxwork bad. Yet another sequel to a movie I love that I hated.

Synopsis from IMDb
The new owner of a sinister house gets involved with reanimated corpses and demons searching for an ancient Aztec skull with magic powers.

2 stars from me. Check out the trailer.


  1. I rewatched the first "House" movie only a short while ago and it didn't stand the test of time at all. The sequel was probably the most ridiculous thing that I ever watched though. The third one with Lance Henriksen is still the best.

  2. Really? Man, that's disapointing. I actually was't looking forward to three but i'm going to put it at the top of my netflix queue.
