THE BEACH HOUSE (Blu-ray Review)
From RLJE FILMS
Review by Josey, the Sudden Cat🙀
Here’s a little gem that manages to be intimate and apocalyptic at the same time, to say nothing of unnerving. Despite a limited budget and more-or-less taking place in a single setting, The Beach House effectively conveys the ominous implications of its concept, resulting in a chilling film that might linger with you afterwards.
Emily (Liana Lerato) and Randall (Noah Le Gros) are a young couple who arrive at his parents' beach home, only to find old friends of the family, Mitch and Jane (Jake Weber & Maryann Nagel), staying there. But it’s soon obvious that something isn’t quite right...about the older couple, the empty beach, the oysters served at dinner. Afterwards, they all partake in some of Randall’s edibles, and it’s at this point a strange luminous fog rolls in. And yes, there appears to be something in the air, as well as the water and some of the critters living there (including those goddamn oysters!), which Emily discovers the next morning in an invasively nasty scene.
