ADVANCE REVIEWS – House of Last Things
*********************************************
“The House of Last Things” is a twisting turning fever dream of a film full of lush treasures and nightmarish imagery. Just when you think you are safe, this writhing snake of a film bears fangs and bites. There’s a lot to like in this ghostly fable of people who are trapped in both an idyllic dream and a horrifying nightmare. Very cool film”
Mark Miller advance review – Ain’t It Cool News – Sept. 29. 2012
*********************************************
“I haven’t felt this way about a genre film in a long time after watching a rough cut of “House of Last Things” last week. Michael Bartlett has crafted a film that creeps under your skin in an elegant and haunting manner, and equally respects its intended audience! A sort of “Donnie Darko” meets “David Lynch” vibe. “House of Last Things” isn’t about cheap scares, “ADD” camera-work and corn syrup spatter. This is about solid narrative and characters you feel something for. Definitely one film to put on the must-see list for 2013!”
Christian Burgess – Toronto After Dark Film Festival
*********************************************
“Instead of being a traditional haunting tale, it’s an ambitious take on a ghost story which at times works very well… a film that will not only entertain you while watching but also linger after the viewing as some of the more emotional scenes are quite powerful… By the time the entire truth is revealed, you’ll be glad you took the ride.”
