The House at the End of Time (aka La casa del fin de los tiempos) is haunted house with a big twist that will blow your mind.

The Story

The story is about a mother with two boys named Dulce.

The Review (Spoiler Free)

The House of End of Times is first Venezuelan supernatural thriller, and it is well done movie.  It started out as some kind of haunted house story, but it has a big twist in the story.  The big twist in the story makes the movie very unique and entertaining.

There are lots of mystery about the house and what happening to her initially.  But little over half of the movie, the movie slowly reveals what is going on.  By end of the movie, it explains everything and your mind will be blown.

There are lots of horror elements in the movie with few of the good jump scares.  But at the same time, there is interesting backstory story behind the Dulce and her family.  Also her two boys, Leo and Rodrigo plays a big part in the story.  Leo and Rodrigue love each other and they are best friend, but Leo is jealous of Rodrigo because he finds himself a girlfriend and he is in love.  The relationship between Leo and Rodrigo plays big part in the movie

That is all I have to say about the movie.

Spoiler Ending (Spoiler Alert!)

The big twist of the story is that the house is not haunted but it is time portal where Dulce is able to time travel.  On Nov 11, 11:11pm is when the time portal opens up and Dulce is able to time to travel to the past and to the future.  There were some hints in the movie revealing this.

We see three different time lines for Dulce.  First is Dulce before one of the son died in an accident.  Second is after the death of her son, and the lastly old aged Ducle, 30 years later.

At the end, the movie is about Dulce trying to save her two sons.  Unfortunately, she is unable to save the younger son, Rodrigo, who died in an accident.  But she was able to save the older son, Leo, twice.  Once from her husband who blamed the older son for death of the younger son and tried to kill him.  Later on she saved Leo again by bring the son to the future time.  You see, we find out later that the Leo has rare disease without any cure at that time.  But by bring him to the future, there is now the cure for the rare disease, and she was able to save him.

Also we find out that the priest who is trying to help her is actually Leo’s best friend from who is now all grown up.  He plays big part helping young Leo to adjust and find a home for him since his mom is too old to take care of him.  He eventually adapted by Rodrigo’s girlfriend, who is now grown up.  At the end, we know that Leo survived until old age because old aged Leo from future travel back to see his mom to tell her that he is okay.
