Movie Review: The Deep House


Some people are adventure junkies, and others are just there for the ride. That kind of description perfectly describes the couple in The Deep House since Ben and Tina, two YouTubers dedicated to providing haunted house material to their viewers, aren’t entirely on the same page in this movie. Although they both love what they do, it becomes pretty obvious early on that Ben is the prankster and the type of guy who likes to scare fans into their material, while Tina is all about the fun. people, but has to hang out with Ben more often than not. When they learn of a submerged and supposedly haunted mansion in France, they head to the place to find that it is a crowded tourist spot, which goes against their beliefs. their interests until they meet a local who claims he can take them to a secluded place. part of the lake under which the house rests. The statute of the house explains that the area was intentionally submerged to avoid the continuously devastating floods that were common to the area.

When the local takes Ben and Tina to the scene, the pair descend into the depths of the lake where they eventually find the mansion. What they notice right away is that he appears to be in pristine condition having sat at the bottom of a lake for so long. As they find a way in, it’s easy to see that it’s time to just go there and not worry about the YouTube channel, especially since the mansion is locked up, as if someone was trying to prevent himself from entering or leaving. It might sound a bit cheesy, but the very idea of ​​being underwater and looking to enter a home that no one had even heard of in years and years sounds like a huge setup. And yet, while this is very clearly a setup, there’s still a sense that things haven’t gotten too artificial yet.

After entering the house, Ben and Tina manage to move on, going into one room at a time as Tina becomes annoyed in front of Ben, sensing there is something wrong with the house. There are plenty of signs that something is wrong, especially considering the odd marks they find etched into various surfaces, but Ben is adamant when it comes to getting the kind of material their viewers are looking for and keep on going. Even when he thinks he’s seeing things, he doesn’t run away, as his adventurous spirit is more than enough to keep him going. However, when the pair arrive at a room that has been blocked off by a huge crucifix, they both decide to enter the room and find the one sight that should have scared anyone from the house. Two individuals bound and masked in some type of torture device await them, and it is at this point that the public is allowed to get even more information about the house and the people who have been discovered.

The history of the place is tied to the actions of a family who abducted children to use them in satanic rituals, at least until the townspeople came together to bring their own kind of justice to the family by binding them in their own home. While their son escapes, the rest of the family is taken in by the townspeople. As expected, once Ben and Tina remove the strange masks from the faces of the two chained individuals, they wake up and begin chasing the pair through the mansion. As Ben and Tina make their way through the massive, dark dwelling, they part ways, predictably, and Ben ends up becoming possessed and tries to convert Tina, but she ends up stabbing him and s escape from the house. Unfortunately, she hasn’t reached the surface the whole time the pair have been trying to escape, their air supply was rapidly dwindling, and before Tina can reach the surface, she drowns. If the audience pays attention during the film, they will realize that the local who brought the couple to the lake was the chained couple’s son.

This means that the son was still doing his parents’ job of encouraging divers to go down into the lake, where they wouldn’t come back up. The question now is whether or not the parents would return to their confinement to lay a trap for the next divers, or if they would lie in wait. It would be an interesting thing to find out to be fair, but it’s easy to think that this movie probably won’t get a sequel anytime soon unless someone is ambitious enough and can come up with a great script.
