On a deserted back road in Alabama, Jack and Stephanie find themselves driving fast and running late. Their world suddenly changes when a strange accident leaves them stranded with no car, no cell phone coverage, and no help in sight. They have no choice except to continue on foot. As darkness approaches, they round a bend and see a small sign at the top of a long gravel driveway: The Wayside Inn. The exhausted couple stands in front of an inviting house, complete with gated stone wall, ancient oak trees, and a note welcoming weary travelers. Inside they find another couple with an equally… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Thankfully, the villains...keep things entertaining when they're on-screen, but too often take a backseat to tediously obvious flashback sequences."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, L.A. Weekly
"Christian-themed horror film too intense for kids."
‑ James Rocchi, Common Sense Media
"I walked into the movie expecting to give it one star, or lower. Instead, it was just mediocre."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"The film doesn't achieve the horror or creep factor it could have%u2014or that the trailer seems to promise%u2014mainly because of strange stylistic choices."
‑ Todd Hertz, Christianity Today
"The backstories keep piling up, with nods to The Shining, The Ring, and a dozen other gothic supernatural chillers, yet the result doesn't remotely scare you -- rather, it keeps explaining why you should be scared. That's why we're not."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Like most movies where belief makes up a good percentage of the narrative rationale and resolution, House has a very hard time with its dogma."
‑ Bill Gibron, PopMatters
"To say that mush-minded incompetence runs wild here would be to insult mush-minded incompetence everywhere."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Unsurprisingly, House fails to supply a sufficient level of fright; the picture seems content to wallow in confusion and convention, removing the novelty of faith to roll around in tired terror clichés and dreadful direction."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Overall, the pacing and characters are where House suffers. The film works as a direct-to-DVD horror movie, but it definitely has its rocky moments."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"The cluttered, unconvincing dialogue -- not to mention Moseley's ongoing penchant for crazed overacting -- make it more of a genre curiousity than anything the Fangoria gang would likely want to sit through."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Calling Extreme Makeover: HE. Your intervention is sorely needed at this disastrous would-be horror movie...from the same folks who gave you the awful Thr3e."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"Completing Roadside Attractions' HOUSE was physically draining, which is something a viewer should never have to endure when in theaters. The adaptation of the novel by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker is preachy, whiney and painfully cliché."
‑ Brad Miska, Bloody Disgusting
