review by
Mike Haberfelner

Jennifer (Natasha Henstridge) and Paul (Lukas Hassel) have just moved into a new house, unaware thast the previous owner (Lin Shaye) has been sucked into a demonic vortex in the cellar, and at first, the two couldn't be happier - but something opens that vortex again, and eventually, Laul is lured to the cellar, possessed by a demon ... and he emerges a pretty horny, totally ruthless guy. Jennifer first thinks he's just going through a phase because her sister (Augie Duke) whom he hates has come over for a few days, and thus turns a blind eye to him flirting with every woman there is and making sexual remarks to his sister. And then the sister disappears, and so do their best friends (Dominique Swain, Caleb Scott) who have come for a housewarming party, all because Paul has dragged them to that certain black room in the cellar - and slowly, Jennifer starts to feel there's something wrong ...

Genre fave Tiffany Shepis plays a realtor.

 

Now The Black Room might not exactly try to reinvent the wheel - but it's pretty solid horror entertainment that finds its balance between the terror aspects of the story and the lighter, even slapstick-y moments, features some sexy bits (even if the story almost suggests more) and is carried by a compact story and a directorial effort that's not over-doing things in any way. And the cast's solid and plays it straight, which totally fits the tone of the film.
