“[Reinert] Kiil typically trends with shock horror, but with The House, there is an expansion upon his range as a filmmaker while remaining in a field he’s finds most endearing, pulling inspiration from his childhood memory vault of B-movie horror schlock and nostalgia grandeur, and dapples with replacing his guts and gory showmanship with slowly developing and instilling fear, especially with fear of the unknown and fear of change…The House is non-exuberant horror diverging toward exploring the filmmaker’s unlimited possibilities and with its diabolical descent into invigorating terror, Norway cinema has an abundance of sheer promise for the future of horror.” – Steven Lewis, Its Bloggin’ Evil!
