Film Review: House Call (short film) (2011)


Janice does the unthinkable in order to start a new life with her new boyfriend. However, strange things begin to happen on the night of their one year anniversary.


House Call is a 15 minute short by director Erik L. Wilson and Sphinx Productions.

In “House call, we learn thatΒ Janice (Aimee Bello) has been dealing with a rough marriage in an abusive relationship. Her husband Dave (Brad Egger), suspects her of having an affair, but never gets the chance to really find out for himself. When she fakes an accident killing Dave,Β Janice doesn’t waste any time in having her boyfriend Steve (Michael Jordin) take over his spot. Perhaps they didn’t also anticipate that the dead spirit of Dave would get resurrected into Steve’s body by his witch of an old hag mother (Janet Gawrys). An anniversary celebration turns sour when Steve becomes possessed and zombified in the process causing a whole slew of chaos to unfold includingΒ Janice’s fight for survival.

Dark and ,moody with some impressive low budget special effects,Β  “House Call” keeps it short but powerful. Surpassing all the drama and moving to the punch line, this small production makes a big impact. Great makeup and lighting make combined with a fantastic score for a perfect short horror experience that rounds off a full helping of nasty…say no more, just check it out.
