If you believe that the most terrifying part of a horror film is the backstory (you know, that jittery quick-cut flashback in which we discover how the psycho became a psycho), then House is the tingler for you. It starts off as your basic two-couples-stranded-in-a-house-owned-by-a-family-of-redneck-bizarros Chainsaw facsimile, but then the haunted rooms begin to provoke extended visions of Sins From the Past.
