|"Weird haunted house
horror film from Belgium."
by Dennis Schwartz
house horror film from Belgium, thanks to Troma.
It's not that good, but it never becomes that
bad. It acts as a fight against greed.
Writer-director Emmanuel Kervyn
dubs in the English accents for the non-Emglish
rich, old and daffy spinster Remington
sisters (Dany Daven and Anne Marie Fox) give
their annual birthday party in their mansion and as
usual invite their brown-nosing mercenary
nephews and nieces, who behind their backs anxiously
await their death. One of the mysterious party-goers
has been disinherited because he's a
Satan-worshipper. The nephew, as revenge, thereby
gives the birthday girls a cursed demonic gift package
that transforms them into killer crones.
It goes into the "Ten Little Indians" formula mode. The treat is watching the greedy relatives be removed by becoming on the menu.
