I like to think that I'm always figuring out what I like and what I don't.
I give priority to films that are made by writer-directors.
"His House" has a powerful message and some remarkable moments, that unfortunately, sometimes were exchanged for basic horror tricks. The horror got so much scarier and original when it focused on the psychological aspect of the lead character's story (which already seemed quite enough) than when it tried to scare you with jump scares, for example.
MY FIRST Michael Haneke's experience and wasn't at all what I was expecting of an horror film. I mean, I saw so many people talking about, and I was expecting to see torture scenes, gore stuff, and that kind of thing. But no. It don't follow the genre stereotypes, it's very clever.
There's some parts that actually feels a little boring, but I think the director did this on purpose. But the thing that I most liked is how it breaks the fourth wall: WONDERFULLY!!!! I loved.
PLEASE, GO WATCH THIS FILM WITH OPEN MIND ABOUT THE GENRE OF IT!!
