| Predictable Slasher
After an amicable divorce, Alice (Rachel Blanchard) and Josh (Stephen Moyer) are selling their house, using the service of their friend, the real estate agent Carl (Gabriel Olds) that brings a couple apparently interested in the house. Alice welcomes her friend Jennie (Anna Paquin) that spends the night at home with her. When Alice wakes up, she seeks out Jennie and she finds her murdered in the basement. Alice is subdue and held captive in the basement by the psychopath David (Brian Geraghty) that has moved to her house with his insane sister Lila (Tricia Helfer). Sooner Alice discovers that Lila is more dangerous for her than David, who has a disturbed crush on her. Further, the deranged criminals are killing her friends and acquaintances. Alice also leans that she must act as if she was in love with David to survive.

"Open House" is a predictable slasher with the story of a couple of psychopaths that visits houses for sale with the intention of killing the owners and spend a couple of days in the real estate, by the older brother of Anna Paquin, Andrew Paquin, in his debut and only film. The cameos of his sister and Stephen Moyer to promote this movie, inclusive with their pictures highlighted on the DVD cover, are disappointing and lure the viewer that expects to see the couple acting. Brian Geraghty performs a typical deranged psychopath with no surprises and the story gives the sensation of déjà vu, with the usual clichés of the genre and the classic open conclusion with Lila visiting another house. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Cativeiro" ("Captive")
