2014 Dallas International Film Festival: The Ladies of the House at Angelika Film Center & Cafe (Dallas)
The saying goes that “a lady is as a lady does,” but what these ladies do is shockingly disturbing. In THE LADIES OF THE HOUSE, a reluctant birthday celebration starts out innocently enough but quickly turns into three men’s desperate fight for survival. The film explores a modern-day house of horrors, inhabited by four women who lead a most unusual lifestyle. This unorthodox ‘family,’ made up of dangerous beauties with a retro-sensibility, will let nothing compromise the happy home life they’ve carved out for themselves. Filmed in Dallas by the husband and wife team of John Stuart Wildman and Justina Walford, this stylized and sexy thriller lures the viewer into a place of unthinkable terror. While a macabre feast for the senses, it serves as quite the cautionary tale. Taking a place at this table is indeed eye-opening to the potential deadliness of feminine wiles.
