Ulasan Kritikus

Serrador finds interest in the same kind of classy spookshow atmosphere as The Innocents and The Haunting, while also delivering a frantic montage of embroidery in which the frenzied sewing of the girls becomes a sublimation of adolescent sexual desires… Throw in a thunderstorm and convincing, opulent and cavernous sets for his camera and characters to stalk one another through, and you have the makings of some sumptuous Halloween/Day of the Dead entertainment.

The House That Screamed was reportedly a major influence on Dario Argento’s Suspiria (which arrived almost a decade later), but if you ask me it’s the superior film. Instead of settling for stylishly nonsensical set pieces, as Argento does, Sarrador focuses on story, mood, and tension. And the violence, when it comes, isn’t meant to make us cheer and applaud: It’s intimate and unsettling, just as it is in all the best horror films.
