The Overlook Theatre Reviews: The House That Drips Blood on Alex

9 of 9 viewers "Liked" "The House that Drips Blood on Alex" (2010, USA)
Creature reviews have been minimally altered in an attempt to maintain their voice:

Bookwyrm - "For a short film, this was executed very nicely. Extremely entertaining, I feel like I could watch this over and over." - 3.5 Stars

Huntress - "As much as I enjoyed seeing Tommy Wiseau portray the role of Alex the way that only he can, the thing I can't get over how perfect Joey Greco was as the villain! I would watch Tommy get menaced by Joey Greco for a full feature in a heartbeat. This short also has an awesome dream sequence!" - 4 Stars

The Great Hornito - "Tommy Wiseau at his best! His line delivery is like no other. I didn't want this movie to end. Also, the twist ending was hella cool." - 5 Stars

The Berkeley Blazer - "Unbearable laughter at the fiendish Wiseau's absurdist delivery pan excellence. Would have loved 20 more minutes." - 3.5 Stars

Unicorn Slayer - "Poorly read scripts, awkward angles, and expected cheesy film directions make this short good for a quick laugh." - 3.5 Stars

Math Mage - "An alien creature is cast as the lead in a low-budget comedy/horror short film." - 5 Stars

Wandering Panda - "Awesome short that Tommy carries. He works in mysterious ways and I love it! It's 100% him. I have so many questions and they will never be answered. I feel like I need to watch The Room, Best F(r)iends, and The Disaster Artist now." - 3.5 Stars

Eddie The Gamer Ghoul - "Dis shit was great... If Amityville Horror met Monty Python's Holy Grail and then fought Godzilla and took on of those horrid reenactments of B rated TV shows about hauntings..." - 4 Stars

Lord Battle - "Who knew there was a director capable of making a post- The Room Tommy Wiseau funny!? It's a tough line to walk since a brutally self-aware script would not only be unfunny, but also offensive. I could watch Alex manically look for ghost all day. Extra points for getting Joey Greco involved (I'm a huge Cheaters fan)!" - 5 Stars

The Overlook Theatre Final Rating*
(Below is for after you've seen the film)

I'm not exactly sure why this review was lost for so long. The House that Drips Blood on Alex played great to a crowd of 8 creatures and made such an impact that you may hear a "Home Sweet House" every now-and-then... It does feel good to finally share out thoughts on this funny, concise, and well-made Comedy/Horror spoof of the questionably related Amicus production of The House that Dripped Blood. It admittedly does feel weird to review a short in this manner, but being able to attach the film is pretty amazing. My hope is that one or more people are haunted by this production due to a brief visit to the Overlook Theatre.
