The Deep House movie review
Hi there, today we are reviewing The Deep House movie, starring Camille Rowe, James Jagger, and Eric Savin. And written and directed by Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury.
Firstly, it is worth mentioning that Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury are accustomed to writing the movies they direct; for instance Letherface (2017), and Kandisha (2020).
The movie is about Ben and Tina, friends that love to get into adventures. For instance, if they hear about a haunted house, they will rush in there and take pictures to share on social media, in order to get as many views as they can.
However, one day a friend of Ben’s wanted to share with them a location of a place nobody knows about, totally secret, in exchange for a symbolic amount of money!
The place of interest was drowned in a flood, for like fifty years. So the house now is based on a lake, and of course, Ben and Tina like the idea, pack their package and head directly to the haunted house.
Pros and cons
The idea of the movie is really good, and there aren’t many movies with the same idea. So if you are into haunted houses movies, The Deep House is for you.
Moreover, the directors did a creative job in the framing and planning for the scenes, so in some scenes, you see a normal position of the camera; and in other scenes, they adopted the method of The Blair Witch Project movie or Cloverfield movie.
This method is where the protagonist is holding the camera in his hands, and we as spectators get to see through the camera. Of course, there are some that will like this method and others who will not like it.
The good thing is that they did not follow this method throughout the whole movie.
And for the cons of the movie is boredom! The movie is just about 75 minutes and you can easily get bored. So, if there is something to deduct from that is that the idea wasn’t implemented in a good way.
