After directing Friday the 13th Part II and Part III but just before Soul Man, Steve Miner directed the curious film House.
William Katt (forever known as the Greatest American Hero to some folks) stars as a troubled horror writer who moves into his Aunt's home after her death. Things rapidly go downhill as chronic nightmares give way to hallucinations culminating in attacks from other-worldly creatures.
As he did on the Friday the 13th films, Harry Manfredini provides the musical score.
House did good business at the box office, ensuring sequels. It's opening weekend it made $5,923,972 and came in a very close second to Pretty in Pink.
