We really loved The Shrine (our review HERE), and we had no problem immediately eating crow and admitting that we misjudged Mr. Matthew's talent. Now with Girlhouse, we're even more convinced that he knows his Horror business, because it was one of the best pure slasher flicks that we've seen in forever.

|THERE'S NOTHING NOT TERRIFYING ABOUT THAT.|
From the crazy opening scene that made us yell a collective "Damn!," we knew that Girlhouse was going to be a bit different. Sure, it's a slasher flick, and even the best of those don't usually end up being anything special these days, but Girlhouse is different. From script to direction, it was well-executed, and aside from some convenient plot devices, it didn't insult our intelligence. At least not too much.
The thing that really made Girlhouse stand out and work so well was its cast. Just about everyone in this movie acted their asses off and were way better than the acting talent you find in most flicks of this type. Ali Cobrin made for a great final girl, and Boston bad boy Slaine played Loverboy with the perfect amount of ferocity. Loverboy was a cool Movie Maniac, and a fairly terrifying one that genuinely skeeved us out more than a few times throughout this one.
I'm not trying to make it sound like Girlhouse is a perfect movie that got everything right, only drive home the point that it was a really solid effort in a sub-genre that usually tends to turn out sub-par movies.

|WORST SUICIDE EVER.|
|WHY ARE YOU STILL CLOTHED?!?|
|"STAY THERE, I'LL GO GET HELP!"|
|THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T GO SWIMMING AFTER EATING A FULL MEAL.|
|DEAD BABY, DEAD.|
Girl House is available now on VOD.
Ali Cobrin may have been the heroine of the Girlhouse, but she wasn't the only Hottie that lived there. Check out the Hottie Post below to check out her sexy housemates.
