Is What It Is

A young couple (Natasha Henstridge and Lukas Hassle) moves into the house of their dreams which quickly becomes a living nightmare when they discover a dark secret awaiting them in the cellar. This film is getting some awful reviews. And yes, indeed, it is not a great movie. But look at it for what it is. I think Rolfe Kanefsky succeeds in what he set out to do -- get together a large handful of genre stars and get them to make a somewhat scandalous horror film. Honestly, there are far, far worse films out there, especially in the horror genre. This one at least redeems itself by having a sense of humor. And yes, it is more smutty than I typically appreciate in a film, but that is exactly what it set out to be. So I can understand mixed feelings, but the overly negative responses seem harsh.

The Black Room: A very weird movie

The Black Room is advertised as a horror comedy, sadly it's very badly lacking in one area and therefore makes for an oddly imbalanced movie. Telling the story of a couple moving into a new house with a storied past. In the basement is a black room housing an incubus. For those aware of what an incubus is you probably won't be surprised to hear that the film is jam packed with sex and nudity from start to finish to rather gratuitous levels. With a fantastic cast including Natasha "Species" Henstridge, Dominique Swain and horror icons Lin Shaye and Tiffany Shepis it certainly had the tools to deliver a competent movie. Sadly this is again where I must come back to the poor blend of comedy and horror. The movie has very little comedy so when humor is attempted it feels very out of place especially considering that the rest of the film is played like a straight horror. Sure it's a tad cheesy but it's still a full on horror film so the brief moments of levity spoil it. So what with the poor tone balance, amateurish cgi effects (They should have stuck with practical) and a bad story delivery The Black Room will likely appeal to horny teens more than horror enthusiasts. Not irredeemable, but I'd certainly not recommend this to anyone. The Good: Natasha Henstridge The addition of couple of scream queens for cameos Solid cast The Bad: Really weird balance of comedy and horror Some really pants sfx

Lots of fun

If dry, dull, sanitized PG-13 horror is your thing then you won't like The Black Room. But if you're a fan of sexy 80s horror with violence, gore, and nudity then you'll enjoy this movie a great deal. A couple movies into their new house which they got for a good price--not knowing the details of the history of the place. In the 60s the former owners performed a drug-induced demonic ritual gone wrong. But the evil was kept behind the walls of the black room in the basement for years. Till recently when it attacked the owner's granddaughter. And with the new meat in the house, the demons are getting antsy. It's not long before the husband's body is taken over by the demon so he can provide flesh for its evil plans in the basement. The whole incubus/succubus storyline has been all but forgotten now that Hollywood movies pretend to be all "decent." Unfortunately. even low-budget and independent movie-makers have set it aside for some reason. Till now. Finally, with The Black Room we get a serious horror B-movie, not a C or Z movie, with some recognizable cast members, strong acting for the most part (Augie Duke impresses in her transformation from evil b$%& to evil hottie), OK effects and a good supernaturally-themed story that maintains some non-sensical elements about it. No biggie. The Black Room is an unusual, strong, and entertaining horror movie. Can't wait for the sequel with the hot succubus.
