Something is creeping in the dark of grandma's house.

"Grandma's House" is an overlooked suspenser from late 80's.After the death of their father Lynn and her younger brother David go to stay with their grandparents.But there David has dreams of his grandparents hiding bodies in the cellar in the middle of the night and the next day this turns out to be true.They meet the woman that their grandparents keep handcuffed in the barn.But she tricks them into freeing her and then relentlessly pursues the two of them.Unpretetntious little shocker with plenty of dreamlike mood.The hallucinatory atmosphere of the film is so thick that you could cut it with a chainsaw.A horror icon Brinke Stevens plays the kids' insane mother and the performance of Len Lesser is surprisingly creepy.Recommended.8 out of 10.

An unexpected treat

When you come across a movie that no one else has heard of,even amongst fellow horror enthusiasts,and discover it to be both a tense and enjoyable romp,it gives a great deal of pleasure,grandmothers house gave me that feeling.The story itself is nothing to write home about,kids go to live with their grandparents,who have a dark secret, there's a mad woman in the house!! hardly original but then not many films are. But this film has some good heart stopping moments,yes there are some rather gaping holes in the plot and the ending is a bit of a let down but if getting the girlfriend to jump into your arms is a major benefit you can do a lot worse.

Don't poke your nose where it don't belong.

When I borrowed this particular film from a friend I was expecting something rather similar to the 1989 horror comedy "Parents" and "Grandmother's House" does start out like that aforementioned film, but in a much serious and second-rate manner. It does go for that psychological edge, but it lacks the finesse and deft touches to carry it along. It's quite straight-up, nothing subtle. But then it takes a sudden turn into mundane psycho-killer territory with one very long chase sequence, to only turn back on itself revealing one very demented, if sudden revelation that comes out of nowhere and which I didn't see coming. By this you can say it's a makeshift of ideas that cheaply executed (there's a made-for-TV feel), but does have its moments. After the death of their father, David and his older sister Lynn go to live with their grandparents. One day David sees his grandparents dragging a bag, which looks like the shape of a person and strangely enough a body is soon discovered near the lake by their property. Suspicion arises for David even more, especially when he sees them dragging a body of a drifter lady. Going further into the oddball plot can destroy certain twists. The stilted script has some dumb dialogues and ridiculous inclusions, but it stays entertaining. Suspense kind of comes and goes, being the highlight of a rooftop walk. So does the atmosphere, where it's the music arrangement that keeps it fairly eerie. Performances are ideal with the unnerving Len Lesser giving it his all. Eric Foster and Kim Valentine acquits themselves well enough as the two kids. Then there's Brinke Stevens in a small, but important role. Director Peter Radar does a steadfast job and producing this enterprise happens to be Nico Mastorakis ("Island of Death" & "Blind Date").
