To the day one year ago, Leslie's (Callie Stephens) boyfriend (Nick Bastounes) has been killed by a bunch of unknown psychos - so to not be alone on that day, Leslie has invited a few friends (Emily Bennett, Summer Bills, Jonathan Helvey, Danny Miller) over to her parents' (Bill Moseley, Leslie Easterbrook) house (the parents are out that night) just so she doesn't have to be alone with her memories. It's mostly a sob-fest though, until two violent and totally ruthless home invaders (Allan Kayser, David Willis) violently enter the premises, kill the guys and rape the girls - only Leslie somehow seems to be able to evade them and everytime they are about to capture her she puts up a good fight. Finally, the baddies think they have cornered her in her father's sanctuary, the basement ... but hard-boiled as they may be, they can't help but feeling there's something odd about the place, and when Leslie's parents return with a few masked associates ... well, without giving too much away, I have to say the film isn't called House of the Witchdoctor for nothing ...

 

House of the Witchdoctor is a fun little movie because it really knows how to play with horror clichées and thus with audience expectations, as it starts out like your typical home invasion/torture porn movie - and a well-made one at that, with all the suspense, shocks and gruesome scenes in all the right places -, but once you've gotten the feeling you've seen it all before, it turns into something entirely different, without betraying it's narrative, just breaking with the formula. But as a whole, the film is really well-made and well-played, and all the violence is well-placed and explicit enough without being just gratuitous, so for any genre fan able to think a little outside of formulas, this is one to really enjoy!
