‘Fear what you cannot see’
The House on Pine Street is a 2015 independent psychological horror film directed by Aaron and Austin Keeling from a screenplay co-written with Natalie Jones. It stars Emily Goss, Taylor Bottles and Cathy Barnett.
On 1st February 2016, Second Sight released the film on DVD in the UK.
Jennifer and husband Luke move back to her hometown in the hope of finding a calm environment for the arrival of their new baby.
Luke has found the perfect house but Jennifer feels uneasy and soon begins to experience strange phenomena. It begins with objects moving when her back is turned and unexplained knocking sounds but soon escalates into something far more sinister and threatening.
With Luke seeing or hearing nothing, his wife’s sanity is questioned. Is Jennifer losing her mind, or is there a dark entity within the house that is all too real?
“The performers ably walk a line in which their potential malevolence or insanity can be considered without it being too clumsily portended. Suffice to say there are a couple satisfying twists to wait for, though their arrival might not fully placate those horror fans expecting a bloodier and/or more fantastical turn of events.” Dennis Harvey, Variety
“The Keeling brothers are imaginative and confident in their writing and direction, taking cues from throughout the genre and translating them into Keelish, maintaining the production values of the big classics, yet making unexpected turns at every fork.” Luna Guthrie, UK Horror Scene
