Big revenge can certainly come in small packages. Follow us through the grate as we check out the new to Blu-ray horror outing "The Seasoning House" out now from Well Go USA Entertainment. We review the brutal, the bloody and the bold below!
Title: "The Seasoning House"
Cast: Rosie Day, Sean Pertwee, Kevin Howarth
Director: Paul Hyett
Rating: Not Rated
Runtime: 94 minutes
Release Company: Well Go USA Entertainment
The Flick: As a tale focusing on the anguish of gals kidnapped and held as sex slaves, "The Seasoning House" is pretty effective. Not to mention the ‘getting even’ slant involving the ballsy mute gal is pretty captivating as well. That being said though the film is frankly a tough watch and even though there is a certain amount of revenge payoff, getting there is an arduous and uncomfortable trip indeed. But the nuanced and seemingly effortless work by pint-size lead girl Rosie Day does save "The Seasoning House" on all accounts. (We feel every sense of anguish, pain and entrapment through her expressive eyes!) Part slave, part avenging angel, Day’s seasoning here is the right flavor for the flick.
Best Feature: The single sole 'Making Of' is an interesting trip from concept to shooting in small spaces and even Day chatting up a local Q&A.
Best Hidden Gem: Again, as the house slave turned killer Rosie Day turns in one of the most arresting genre performances in years.
Worth the Moola: If you can get past the sinful subject matter and awkward evil vibe, Day has vengeful treats in store.
