First and foremost this is not a comedy. We have a haunted house and
artist owner Dan gets a recommendation and hires Os (Steve Zissis) to
rid the house of the ghosts/demons/whatever. There is no 'relationship'
between the two other then the fact that they are alone in the house
for almost a week. Most of the time, and this was so irritating, Dan
merely sits/stands and listens and watches, saying very as he realized
two things. First, he does not understand anything Os is doing and
second, he realizes Os is nuttier then a fruit cake i.e. describing how
he plucked eye balls out of a woman's corpse with juice squirting
everywhere. OK, Dan, why not terminate Os that very moment? Also, a
bizarre scene with a stripper called to the house and which added
nothing to the tale.
When Os begins destroying Dan's house and paintings he tells Os to leave. I will say the Os, played by Steve Zissis, portrays lunatic so well it seems nonsensical that Dan did not end the nonsense early on. It is one thing to be a zealot exorcist, highly recommended, and quite another to be a madman that will, at the drop of a ghostly hat, see Satan within Dan's teen son and to develop a psycho murder plot that might include Dan's son and possibly Dan and his wife as well. After all, if he kills the son he would have to kill the witnesses.
Forget the police or self help when a ghost can intervene 'after' Os has already begun his torture campaign. So a ghost with very bad timing. Seeing Os naked in the kitchen, to catch vibes, then asking Dan about locations he had sex with his wife and suggesting his son has been possessed by Satan should have been way more then enough to call the cops when Os refused to leave. The fact that Os could sweet talk Dan at that point, to cancel the police, is absurd. Os was obviously 100% loony been material of the highest order.
The final confrontation was staged poorly with Dan, as happens in too many films, leaving slightly injured Os with the shovel so that when Dan turns his back Os can have another go at him. You can't save your son by letting a psycho would be killer have a second shot at you with a deadly shovel. Take the shovel, toss the shovel but do not ever leave it by the side of the would be and still viable psycho killer.
It is not clear how Dan allowed his wife and son return to the cabin knowing psycho Os would be there?
this movie is perfect for rabid Steve Zissis fans. For me, I am still in recovery.
