Our House (2018)



Critic Consensus: Our House sits on a solid foundation of genuine pathos, even if the storytelling structure tends to be frustratingly rickety in spots.

Movie Info

A machine that can bring back dead loved ones seems like a great idea...until you unleash the wrong spirits. When his parents are killed in a car accident, science wiz Ethan (Thomas Mann) must leave behind college and his girlfriend (Nicola Peltz) to care for his younger brother and sister. By day, he juggles the responsibilities of raising two kids; by night, he tinkers in the garage on an invention he hopes will change the world: a machine that can generate wireless electricity. He gets more than he bargained for, however, when the device awakens the dead souls that haunt the house. As Ethan and his siblings attempt to make contact with their parents, a horrifying realization sets in: not all the spirits in their midst may be friendly. This hair-raising science-fiction ghost story is a nightmare journey into a past that refuses to stay dead and buried.

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (9)

Our House is a slick reinvention of filmmaker Matt Osterman's indie shocker that makes up in visceral intensity and emotional nuance what it lacks in originality.

August 14, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

With sincerity kind of holding everything together, it's dispiriting when Our House becomes more of a rote haunted house movie.

Better to leave the past behind is the message director Scott Burns himself ignores. Trying to improve on a rough-cut original, he fails to account for the ghost in the machine.

Though it lacks the go-for-the-throat spirit seemingly required to succeed in the broader horror marketplace these days, its sincerity and polish should impress genre die-hards...

July 26, 2018 | Full Review…

With a brief runtime and a script that doesn't dig deep enough, both the drama and the scares are underserved.

July 26, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

"Our House" distinguishes itself with its purposeful pacing ... its use of sound and crosscutting, and its wit with household objects, from a turntable to a mechanical calendar.
