Still hurting after a tough break-up Alice (Rachel Blanchard) decides to put her house on the market in the hopes of moving on with her life. But the open house event she hosts draws unforeseen interest from a pair of psychopathic house hunters. After concealing himself in her basement, David (Brian Geraghty) emerges in the night, kills Alice's best friend, and inexplicably keeps Alice alive, hidden away in the crawl space of her own home. Alice listens through the floorboards as David and his sexually predatory partner Lila (Tricia Helfer) move in upstairs for a week of playing house.
From there, Alice becomes privy to the perverse relationship between her captors. She realizes David has kept her existence a secret, a small act of rebellion against the domineering Lila. As David's relationship with his hidden prisoner grows stronger, his twisted partnership with Lila begins to crack. But any chance that Alice has of surviving her ordeal is threatened by a disturbing revelation about the true nature of the bond between David and Lila.
OPEN HOUSE, directed by Andrew Paquin and also starring Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin, is a spine-tingling psychological thriller, a typical love triangle where two of the parties just happen to be codependent psychopaths. Alice's cold, sterile house becomes the perfect setting for this tense tale of domestic horror.
