Also known as:

Year: 2010

Genre: Sexploitation

Language: English

Runtime: 80 min

Director: Philip Gardiner

Writer: Philip Gardiner


At the House of Sin a man only known as The Mage knows how to set free people's inhabitation, let loose, and explore their deepest and darkest desires. No matter who they are or what they believe in, all visitors succumb to the perversions in this house.

Our thoughts:
Onto our second feature from Chemical Burn Entertainment and unlike "Almost Invisible", "House of Sin" is actually a full blown sexploitation feature but, unfortunately, it is just as bad as the former. This time around though, "House of Sin" was a lot easier to follow because there wasn't any actual story to try and follow. Well supposedly there is a story with some innocent girl being seduced, becoming a sex maniac, her husband coming back and killing some people, and some supernatural subtext. But saying that there is an actual narrative in "House of Sin" is being a little more than generous. Philip Gardiner certainly did the 60's sexploitation group proud since "House of Sin" was made the same way the senseless skin flicks back then were - random scenes of sex and nudity tied together with a vague idea and pointless narration by one of the actors.

The movie is nothing but an excuse to parade naked women around without being called porn but it's a poor and unacceptable excuse, really. Kind of like the ones used for gym class. Once again, I find myself in a conundrum because the point of a review is to critique the positives and negatives of a movie. Here, there is only negative since there is nothing that goes on in the movie and what does go on is pointless. The movie jumps from one random scene of nudity and awkward sex to the next with some random band that was found off of MySpace playing over said scene. I've said it before and I'll say it again; the music should not be louder than the dialogue. Certainly the nudity could have been worth it if some of the most disgusting smut imaginable wasn't a mouse click away. Or we were sucked back in time to when we were 10 years old, desperate to see a pair bare breasts, and our only option was the local video store and worn out VHS tapes.

How can I critique a movie that honestly is just one scene after another of a girl or girls getting naked and uninspired dry humping? There's nothing that could have been done or changed to make it better other than simply scrapping this version and starting over. I'm not saying that to be mean or to simply be an asshole and insult a movie. Even though I am being an asshole. Like I said maybe if I was 10 years old again and watched anything where I might have had an off-chance of seeing some boob, I might have enjoyed "House of Sin" a bit more. But since I'm not, I might as well watch something like "Fantom Kiler" as opposed to "House of Sin" since I not only get a movie with a higher quality (can't believe I just said that) but far raunchier sex scenes and nudity.

Positive things:
- If you like senseless nudity...
Negative things:
- Once again, everything.
