***May contain some spoilers***
Girl House (2014) follows the story of Kylie who needs money for college and joins an enterprise where girls are placed in a private house and strip in front of an online cam website. The address of the home where the girls are placed is not known to others in order to keep the girls safe. But when one user is mocked by the girls, he becomes angered and tracks down the house. Soon, the girls must try to survive the insanity of this maniac.
There are a few gory scenes and quite a bit of nudity. Some of which are not memorable. However, there is one notable scene where the killer cuts off the fingers of one of the girls in order to prevent her from typing on the keyboard. He then places her at the keyboard as if his torture acts were part of the show. There are some other gory scenes within the film but nothing that particularly stood out.
The Grave Review
Girl House (2014) is a typical slasher movie about a disgruntled user who is has a sad life and lacks any self-confidence. When the user reaches his breaking point, he seeks revenge on the girls who made fun of him. The film, itself, is entertaining and the actresses and actors played their respective roles well, but there is nothing special about the film taking all things into consideration.
There is, however, a deeper message. That message quite simply is that you should treat everyone with respect and kindness. I almost sympathize more with the killer than I do with any other character in this film. The internet desensitizes one’s emotions and consideration for both the aggressor and the aggresse. As a result, because one cannot express themselves, we get mass killings and outbursts that take situations out of context. This is still a current issue and is something that doesn’t stretch beyond reality.
For the foregoing reasons, Grave Reviews gives Girl House (2014) two out of five graves.
