Jeffrey A. Brown's The Beach House is a daring debut that proves you don't need a big budget to make a captivating cosmic horror film.

July 13, 2020 | Full Review…

Jeffrey A. Brown truly grasps that what makes this kind of horror work is the sense of corruption - of the surface hiding the menace, whether it be the calm waves above a roiling, toxic ocean, or the skin that is being consumed and degraded from within.

Visiting The Beach House leads to a decidedly unremarkable experience.

July 10, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

While its parasitic-invasion storyline and end-of-the-world vibes might not soothe any contemporary nerves, that doesn't make the film any less effective.

Boasting sweaty, shaky camerawork and a firm grasp on tone, Brown's grisly indie horror flick is yet another piece of work that feels unexpectedly suited to our times.
