Storyline

June 1988...Summer Was Never The Same. In the House of Flies tells the story of young lovers whose lives are inadvertently changed forever. An innocent couple, Heather (Lindsay Smith) and Steve (Ryan Kotack) suddenly find themselves abducted. By whom? For what purpose? Alone, isolated and locked in an undisclosed, suburban basement, Heather and Steve find themselves pawns in a psychological, mind-game with their diabolical hosts. Surrounded by several mysterious and locked suitcases - each containing valuable clues to their very own survival - Heather and Steve must exploit what remains of their bruised intellect and depleting sanity, to escape the authority of their unidentified and brutal abductors (Henry Rollins, Ryan Barrett). From this day forward, summer was never the same. Written by Christian Burgess

A thriller with no thrills
9 March 2017 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

IN THE HOUSE OF FLIES is a neat title for an otherwise uninteresting micro-budget Canadian thriller that forgets to be thrilling. The problems with this film are manifest from the outset, as it features two of the most disinteresting characters I can remember seeing in a movie, big or small budget. They're a boring couple who get trapped in a basement and the viewer follows their story from there.

This is a slow, slow, slow film with very little in the way of incident or suspense. The main characters sit around and never try to escape. Instead they simply get dirtier and dirtier and more and more aggressive and tired. There's endless time-wasting here and no story of note, leaving the whole experience an awful bore.
