The House of Yes


Time Out says

There's something quite lethal about Parker Posey in pearls, and for that inspiration director Mark Waters deserves our gratitude. The film plays like Rocky Horror rewritten by Strindberg and Oliver Stone: Hamilton brings his fiancée Spelling home to meet the family, arriving on a dark and stormy night to be greeted by the daintily bonkers Bujold (his mom), a deeply nervy Prinze (brother), and the glamorous Jackie-O, as Posey styles herself (his incestuous twin). Soon, Spelling is witness to a strange, erotic ritual of humiliation, role playing, sex and death - because blood doesn't just run in this family, it positively flows. Quite insane, very arch, and viciously funny (from a play by Wendy MacLeod).
