Scott Ventura >> Movie Commentary >> January 1999 >> The House of Yes
House of Yes started life as a play by Wendy MacLeod and was brought to the screen as the directorial debut of Mark S. Waters. With the exception of a short flashback sequence, the entire movie happens in a creepy house lit moodily enough to explain the insanity of its residents. The movie is heavy on dialogue, but it's good dialogue, and I enjoyed the delivery of it. Hey, good writing! Wow!
Parker Posey steals the movie. I'd previously seen her in Clockwatchers and Waiting for Guffman, two movies that I recommend unconditionally. Once again, she takes a character just a little bit off balance and adds enough energy to push the performance over the edge.
