The Houses October Built (2014) Review

The Houses October Built (2014) is an American found footage thriller horror movie that is 91 minutes long. The Houses October Built (2014) is a remake of the same title movie three years ago. The movie was filmed at several haunted house attractions that are listed in "America’s Scariest Haunted Houses" written by Bobby Roe after directing this movie. Director Bobby Roe did not execute this movie to my full expectations, and maybe it is because he lacks experience in that department. I think it was amazing that real haunted places were used for this movie and that aspect of it gave the movie a genuine feel. The movie had the most scares in the first half of the movie. The movie contains violence, suspense, thrills, bad language and real haunted houses.

The Houses October Built revolves around five people who are having fun before Halloween by touring different haunted houses. While touring these attractions. They are looking for ”Blue Skeleton” which is an underground group that is said to give the scariest fright ever. So what does the group do - they take their camera along with them to capture what they see and also to enhance the thrills they receive. The friends and the “Blue Skeleton” group finally see’s each other but, under what circumstance? Will anyone be harmed by the Blue Skeleton group?

There is a lot of tension in this movie, the haunted house actors does not like the camera and that results in chaos. The cast was too huge, and it was very hard at times, well several times to tell people apart from each other. The actors did a great job with their parts, and the friends are as realistic as it gets. The best part of the movie for me was seeing the haunted houses and what happens after the Blue Skeleton group and the friends meet.
