THE HOUSE BETWEEN Ep# 4: Visited

In "Visited," the fourth webisode of the online sci-fi series, THE HOUSE BETWEEN, Arlo (Jim Blanton's) act of violence in the strange house summons malevolent creatures outside in the blackness, the mysterious "Outdwellers." Meanwhile, Astrid (Kim Breeding) and Theresa (Alicia A. Wood) try to save the wounded Bill's (Tony Mercer) life, and wonder if they can trust Travis (Lee Hansen). Produced for the Lulu Show LLC by Joseph Maddrey. Written and directed by John Kenneth Muir. www.thehousebetween.com

    The Outdwellers may just give me nightmares, with their wide eyes of nothingness. I have just watched all the episodes in sequence, and man, you've got some "Black Sun" metaphysics at play, you're giving Robert Wise a run for his money in the sheer disorientation department(the camera gliding from room to room with nerve-wracking intensity), and I particulary enjoy the Hartnell-era Who-style cliffhangers. I mean, Arlo stabbing Bill, after you softened things up with the story of the oven? Pow! And yet you allow Arlo to maintain our sympathy. I enjoyed Theresa's comeback about not chocking, kicking, or stabbing anyone, perhaps my favorite line after Travis' nasty comment about the Andes and that rugby team. Or maybe Bill's crack about "regime change". Astrid and the tape recorder gave me chills. Is that your UFO lunchbox, Mr. Muir? Very cool. And Bill's speech about the beauty of molecules was oddly touching. And as far as Travis goes, the originality on display in "Positioned" really takes the show to "Das Boot" levels of clautrophobia. But, as for the Outdwellers, in my mind(and perhaps my nightmares) the Tall Man is going to have some stiff competition. Anyway, as a hardcore
    sci-fi fan for life, I salute you, and cannot wait for the latest installment. Thank you.
