Retro bloody holiday spirit ‘All Through The House’ – movie review

ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE

ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE

 

Currently on demand throughout the rest of the holiday season is the Todd Nunes feature ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE. Summoning the ghosts of Christmas horror past, slashers were all the rage in the 70’s and 80’s. Nunes has taken this spirit and brought it back to life with this bloodfest of a film. Not short on body counts by any means ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE is a pure throwback to the chaos and carnage found in films like SILENT NIGHT BLOODY NIGHT, DON’T OPEN TIL CHRISTMAS and the like.

Let’s get one thing straight, ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE is a fun filled voyage but not a thinking man’s horror. What you see is what you get and if you are into body counts this is the movie for you. Just when you think the indie horror circuit is being filled with overdrawn complex ideas, Nunes takes a gardening sheer and cuts off its balls. There seems to be no rhyme or reason for the inception of this film but as things move along it becomes a pure homage film to not only holiday but other summer camp filled slashers we know and love. Though as mentioned before is you aren’t down with the sickness this one is not for you.

It’s nice to see filmmakers return to their roots on why they became horror fans in the first place. ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE is Todd’s way of paying back them all. If you are finished with the family’s gatherings, slam packed shopping mall parking lots and looking to unwind then go no further. The end of the year is approaching and as well return to the drab of working and routine why not watch a madman in a Santa outfit wreak havoc for one more time!

  1. Nice review and find, hadn’t even heard of this one or seen it mentioned anywhere this month. Looked it up on IMDb and it seems like the director made a very similar short film titled “Here Comes Santa” a few years earlier. Dude must have some pretty bad Christmas memories if this sort of thing was a personal passion project.
