Pyro Psycho

Mom, do you ever get that burning feeling?

Two kinds of movies I love are Slashers and unintentionally hilarious films. Luckily, this low-budget Psycho rip-off fits both types.

Despite the scary poster, this movie is also complete void of frights, full of hilarious ADR'ing and so much padding, it incredibly makes the 82-minute runtime feel like three hours. But, hey, at least both titles ("The Burning" which I saw in the opening credits and "Don't Go in the House" everywhere else) fit.

Not-David Banner was burned by his mother as a child. Literally. So, with the help of some odd fairy voiceover, he decides to burn a few bridges, er females, once his mother passes. Well, that seems to be the main idea here, though it's only about 15% of the movie. The rest is Not-David Banner not hulking out, but very much trying to.

The film is almost a waste if not for the laughs the movie wasn't intending to invoke. I found myself cracking up at most of the bad dubbing (SEE: the church scene and marvel at how many words are spoken and how many you actually hear) and outbursts from most of the characters (SEE: the second Priest scene at the door, "I made your tea! Drink your tea!" and anything Not-David Banner says in private.)

Wish I could recommend it more, as stated, I love Slashers, but this one was so little slasher and much more outbursts. Both the yelling kind from the movie and the laughter from the audience.


Final thoughts: Day 1 of 2018 starts off with not a bang, but a yelp. Just glad *I* don't have that burning feeling. ...yet.

Parents please raise your kid properly

Came out one year after Halloween(1979) with the title like Don't Go in the House you might expect it to be a slasher movie but turned out it a psychological horror movie and a damn good one.The movie follow a disturbed man that very afraid of fire due to a sadistic act of his mother when he was young.After his mother die he start to hear a strange voice encourage him to get revenge on other woman by using the thing he afraid the most.There are some slasher elements in this movie like he always wearing a mask while killing with his weapon of choice is a flamethrower.The violence in this movie hit me hard cause it more easy to kill people with a knife but to torch them to dead it extremely painful and disturbing.There also some creepy moment that make me jump a couple of time by the perfect timing sound effect.I gotta say i enjoy the first half of this movie more but the awesome ending make up for it

An Average Dark Psychological Thriller, Which Could Have Been Much Better.

This is a dark psychological thriller about the consequences of child abuse. Donny Kohler is a man who is growing increasingly detached from his life. One day, while he's at work he witnesses an accident which causes one of his work colleagues to catch on fire. While the rest of the workforce rush about trying to help the man Donny stands transfixed and spellbound by the sight.

It brings back to him the memories of his mother's retribution for misbehaviour, where she would hold his hands and arms above the open flame of the kitchen hob. This triggers his psychosis, flames cleanse the sins of man... and woman.

Kohler played admirably well by Dan Grimaldi - who is very good at making this psychopathic killer appear as normal - then sets out on his mission of cleansing his town. The most chilling part of this film isn't the killing or the portrayal of Kohler, but the killing room. Kohler covers the walls, floor and ceiling in sheet metal and adds a meat hook in the centre of the room, from which to hang his prey. It's the idea that he's thought this through to this extent so as not to burn down his house that makes it a very creepy and chilling issue and adds a deep psychological darkness to the character.

However, there are issues with the story, especially in correspondence with Kohler's character. There are some scenes that don't quite gel with his personality. And some of the directing could have been better. The scene when Kohler goes out with his friend and ends up attacking his date is well thought out story-wise; however, it could have been acted and directed much better There is a few scene's like this.

The director, Joseph Ellison, who co-scripted the story with writer Joe Masefield and Ellen Hammill, does create a good film with a variable pace and flow, which helps to create atmosphere and keep the viewers interested. However, I feel he could have done more to bring it above average.

The acting is okay though nobody shines through or dominates the film. This is a shame because I think if Dan Grimaldi was a little stronger in his craft it would have made the film a hell of a lot scarier,

Overall, the film suffers from averageness, though it is worth at least one watch. This is a film I would love to see remade, though adding a stronger cast and director, as I believe the story could make a classic film. I would gladly recommend the film to anybody who likes darker psychological thrillers and isn't too distressed by graphic and gory scenes. This left a chill in my bones and I will be watching the film again.
