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.
