Forgotten Flix

We're talking about the movies YOU grew up with!

Ep. 026 – TFFP: House (1986)

House (1986)In this episode of The Forgotten Flix Podcast, we enter House (1986). Directed by Steve Miner and starring William Katt, George Wendt, and Richard Moll, House is a creature feature, practical-effects driven monster movie brought to you by the creative team who made the original Friday the 13th.

William Katt plays Roger Cobb, a horror novelist who’s coming to terms with his experience in Vietnam and the disappearance of his young son. With his life in shambles, Roger returns to the house where he grew up . The same house where his son disappeared. The house where his aunt, who raised him, committed suicide. It’s the house where evil waits, hiding in the closet, hungry for Roger’s soul.

Oh, and did we mention it’s funny too?

This week’s 6 Flix Picks are movies where the house will kill you (or something inside it will!).

    This is one that has long been on my list of films to see — just listing that cast, why wasn’t this an NBC movie of the week?  Lost opportunity to promote Cheers and Night Court (ok so William Katt would need to be recast with an NBC star since Greatest American Hero was on ABC (and cancelled by that time – of course) – how about ALF as the lead?)

      Dave– JayV is awesome, isn’t he? Actually, I would love to have seen Alf show up as one of the “beasties” living in the house! 🙂

    Four things about today’s show:
    First… I love you guys! Not in the wrong way, of course, but in a nice healthy manly way. (Whoa… there’s just no way of saying that right, without it getting creepy, huh?)  😉

      Peter–Thank you man! We love you too and I don’t give a dang how creepy it sounds! 😉

      Thanks for the links and as for The Haunting, your review is what inspired me to pick that one for the list. 🙂
