This movie is definitely not a cinematic masterpiece. The opening scene is a woman beating someone to death with a hammer (reminded me of an incident I had with a mouse on a glue trap once). Gruesome opening scene leading into some fairly gruesome acting. Not sure which was scarier, the movie itself or the crappy acting.
House of the Damned is filmed in black & white. It not only contains poor acting, but it also very low budget. Great film for the B movie horror flick buff, but not for anyone looking for some good cinematography.
For those of you still interested in seeing this movie; it is about a woman who is trying to find out who murdered her dad. It contains an evil house and a plot twist.
