To be completely frank about it, I honestly didn't much like House By The River's bleak, overwrought tale of woe. I found that it took itself way-way too seriously and that it carried the level of its melodramatics to the point of being downright laughable at times._____ The characters in the story pushed the plausibility of their actions just a bit too far for me to take them at face value._____ Ok. I will glady admit that regardless of House By The River being strictly a poverty-row production from Republic Studios, director Fritz Lang certainly did manage to milk the moody eeriness of its Gothic setting to the absolute fullest extent possible. And, yes, that did serve for being quite an effective distraction._____ But, after all was said and done, it sure seemed to me that all there was lurking beneath the ominous-looking shadows was just the barest bones of a decidedly confused and poorly thought out story that left me feeling quite dissatisfied and bored._____ House By The River's story tells the tale of a quirky, second-rate novelist whose pent-up neurosis finally rears its ugly, little head.
