Movie review: MOH: John Landis: Family – 2006


In a peaceful suburban neighborhood the nice quiet guy next door is the one you want to watch out for. They turn out to be the serial killers and Harold is no different. Underneath his sweet exterior lives a murderous psychopath building a family one murder at a time. When David and Celia move in next door, Harold sees Celia as a possible replacement for his current dead wife.

George Wendt (Harold Thompson), Matt Keeslar (David Fuller), Meredith Monroe (Celia Fuller), John Scott (Grandpa), Nancy Whyte (Grandma), Haley Guiel (Sarah).

On the surface this looks like another typical serial killer horror flick. A bit comedic in parts, a bit campy, and without originality. But toward the end this one takes a lovely twist that makes the previous 50 minutes of the movie worth watching.

I really enjoyed seeing Wendt in a role like this, having never seen him in a dark part. He did very well delivering both the humor and the horror. Keeslar and Monroe also did well in this one, supporting Wendt and the story nicely.

Special effects were pretty good though there weren’t a lot. Costuming and sets were nicely done as with most Master’s Of Horror. Camera work, sound and dialogue all were done well.

In Summary, this was one of the better MOH entries with a nice solid plot, decent acting, and quality you expect from MOH. A bit lighthearted at times but well worth watching.

With some blood, gore, violence, and graphic horror, save this one for older teens and above.
