WATCH: From The House On Willow Street review

Kidnappers get more than they wished for.

House on Willow Street, directed by Alistair Orr, is one of the few South African horror movies.

The plot of the movie is based on a daughter of a diamond dealer Katherine (Carlyn Burchell), who gets abducted by a gang in the hope of getting diamonds from her wealthy family.

The gang consists of Hazel (Sharni Vinson), her boyfriend Ade (Steven Ward), Mark (Zino Ventura) and James (Gustav Gerderner).

Now, the movie cuts straight to the chase, as it is not long after the gang keep the young girl hostage to an abandoned warehouse that things start to go completely wrong. It turns out the girl is not as innocent as she looks, as she is possessed.

The film consists of one horrific episode after another, and does not give the viewer time to breathe. The narrative of the movie is also very predictable.

House on Willow was made in South Africa, but there is nothing in the movie to indicate that.

Here are some of the comments about the movie from the viewers:
