Plot – Spoilers:
Based on the serial-killing ’80s hit duo, Leonard Lake and Charles Ng.
House on the Hill slices in footage from Lake’s home tapes – his views on captivity, women and control – but uses slinky ways to avoid getting into the practical effects required for any decent gore. But once you accept this, it does a pretty watchable job of capturing the trauma, on what was evidently a limited budget.
Oddly enough I was watching a youtube doc last night on those two (Lake and Ng). What a charming duo they were.
People often speak of these guys as a “Duo” as if Ms Cricket did nothing but watch and film some of the events. Surely no one out there truly believes that some grizzly, scraggly, balding old fuck and his insecure, stubby Cleptomanic Kato could actually entice young girls back to their home? Or is it a coincidence that Claralyn took a job as a teacher’s aid at the local high school? And then there is the interview where she talks about how she enjoyed watching 15 and 16 year old girls having “interesting things done byto them.”
Maybe it’s time we all stop calling it a “Duo’ and start calling it what it really is…
A fucking trio of sick fucks, one of whom had boobs.
Amazing 5 stars when he farted during the end, that was so cool
Yeah, not gonna win any awards but it was ok. But could have been so much better. It was just cheap and smutty with some mediocre acting.
