The Seasoning House is a 2012 British horror film directed by Paul Hyett and starring Rosie Day, Kevin Howarth and Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers).
Angel, a young girl that is forced to work in a house that specializes in supplying young prostitutes to various military personnel. Initially planned to be put to work as a prostitute, Angel instead becomes the assistant to Viktor, who runs the brothel. During the day she is given the duty of cleaning the prostitutes up after their often violent encounters with various men, but at night wanders the walls and crawlspaces of the house. It’s when she befriends newcomer Vanya and witnesses the aftermath of the regular and brutal sexual assaults that Vanya is subjected to that Angel begins to plan revenge, especially after the squad of soldiers responsible for her abduction and the murder of her family arrives…
Filming for the movie began in January 2012 at a disused air force base in London, with the movie being Hyett’s directorial debut.
“Whilst it never quite manages that little bit extra that might have lifted it from being very good to truly great, The Seasoning House is nevertheless a superior example of modern British horror cinema.” Beyond Hollywood
“The Seasoning House is a lyrical, bleak, and deeply wounding exploration of brutality and inhumanity that cries out to be seen, though some very harsh scenes of violence and rape should see those of a sensitive disposition tread lightly.” Dread Central
