Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Independent horror films often dare to tread were their more mainstream counterparts won’t. It’s fair to say that the visually striking image of kids swinging dead in the trees is one of those places. Treehouse is raw, clever and well made. It certainly won’t grab everyone. Certain changes in story direction could confuse or confound rather than surprise and shock, whilst a few of the performances are weaker than you’d hope. BUT that honestly doesn’t detract from the fact that this film when at it’s best is a daring, striking, memorable piece of filmmaking. Just one that’s equally flawed also.
