Everyone at the Mystery Spot will be affected by its unique properties, but only some will survive its reality-shattering implications…
Mystery Spot had its world premiere on August 30, 2021, at the Arrow Video FrightFest.The Mystery Spot releases on digital and VOD worldwide from Terror Films on October 7, 2022.
“The pace is slow for the most part, though when it ramps up towards the end, that feels perfectly apt. This slowness isn’t dull by any means but is instead almost dreamlike, and it’s easy to wonder whether the strange experiences are actually happening or just imagined. The music and cinematography reflect this neatly…” Horror Obsessive
“It all revolves around the ruins of the mystery spot and the apparitions that seem designed to lure people here. It gets a bit repetitive and is sometimes too elusive for its own good, but the performances are good, especially from Wilcox (a mature, interesting lead) and Skipper, and it has a beguiling sense of eeriness.” The Kim Newman Web Site
“Mystery Spot is a below-par horror which sits in the chaff of Frightfest 2021 and I’m surprised that it made it to the screens of this prestigious platform […] It’s hard to tell whether it was a bad story, or an average story that was poorly interpreted – either way, it offers very little and is a chore to watch.” Love Horror
” …ultimately the magical ‘mystery spot’ proves to be a theatrical space where you either choose to check out early, or stay till the end, transformed by what you vicariously experience and imagine there. The mystery itself, though, is life, death and everything in between, as House’s film offers ample accommodation and overnight entertainments to anyone – which is to say everyone – just passing through.” Projected Figures
“The performances of Skipper and Wilcox are standout ones, with turns by other cast members ranging from good to a bit stiff. House goes for puzzling material and a sinister vibe rather than gore or jump scares. He has crafted an unusual chiller that will reward those seeking out unconventional independent horror fare.” 3 out of 5, The Scariest Things
