Artsploitation Films Warns The Summer House is NOT a Horror Films!

Warning: THIS IS NOT THE TYPICAL ARTSPLOITATION HORROR FILM!
We here at Artsploitation Films love international horror and thrillers. It is our cinematic bread and butter. But we also watch and like art films and controversial films. And this is where THE SUMMER HOUSE lies. It is a thoughtful and ultimately devastating psychological thriller about a married man’s sexual obsession with a young boy. Think American Beauty, Lolita, and most of all, Death in Venice.

The storyline definitely makes for uncomfortable viewing. But the acting is exceptional and the film offers a devastating conclusion. An intriguing film for adventurous film-goers not put off by its indelicate theme.

Not for you? Skip it, we have some amazing horror films coming in September!

It was only a weekend camping trip for a troop of innocent cub scouts and their older teen chaparones. What could go wrong? Well, start with a evil psychopathic killer, add his ferel young protoge, have them place some ingenious traps in the woods and the results are kind of violent and bloody. This imaginative fairy tale draws on such influences as Lord of the Rings, Friday the 13thand The Devil’s Backbone as it tells the story of 12-year-old outcast Sam who, along with his fellow cub scouts, are forced to confront unspeakable evil!. A wildly entertaining “killer in the woods” actioner that has been a hit in it festival run.

“Kinetic and brutal, gory and graphic with comedic beats in-between.” – Bloody-Disgusting.com

“A brutal new spin on standard camp horror fare.” – Dread Central
