This is a comparison between the theatrical version and the Director's Cut.

Playboy Jim buys a big mansion in the Hollywood Hills from his uncle. What he does not know is that all previous owners had died in gruesome circumstances. Jim moves in and rents out most of the rooms to pretty girls. Among his new roommates there is Cindy (who ran away from her brutal boyfriend Richard), Victoria (an aspiring rock singer that Jim has a crush on), and Debbie whom Richard takes in out of good nature. Soon, mysterious events start to happen. One of the girls hallucinates under the shower and sees herself with a pig's face; Victoria has terrible nightmares during which she runs away from monsters; dishes fall to the ground by themselves. Maybe the wry gardener is behind all this? Or are there supernatural forces in the house?

"Boarding House" was one of the first horror movies to be shot on video that interestingly enough also had a theatrical run on 35mm. Director John Wintergate did not only write the script and do all the special effects but also plays the main role as well as the gardener sidecharacter. When watching the movie you soon feel like watching a low budged version of "Girls of the Playboy Mansion" combined with a haunted house setting. As if this was not weird enough, Jim also has telepathic abilities and shows off his leopard underwear way too often. The movie seems to take place in a bizarre parallel universe. Otherwise it could not be explained that girls actually react to Jim's ad in the newspaper which says "Girls, if you're between eighteen and twenty-five, unattached and beautiful, then I want you to share my ten bedroom house with me". In general, the girls do not seem to do much more than hangig around wearing (or not wearing) a bikini.
The effects are ultra cheap. The pig mask was probably bought in a halloween shop and when the insides of the fridge fly at Victoria, you partially can see the hand which throws all the things at her. Also, one should quickly accept the boom mic constantly entering the frame. Another, let's call it "speciality" of the movie is the cut. Several video editing effects (such as the next scene flying in from the middle of the screen or circle fades) were used way too often. A lot of scenes do not follow each other up correctly. Some sequences are too short, while others drag out way too long. To sum it up: The cut is a catastrophe.

Somehow, the movie still manages to suck you in. All screwed up components (plot, cut, effects, leopard underwear) make for a very captivating movie. Maybe Jim's telepathic abilities have an impact on the viewers via the TV screen, thus trapping them inside the "Boardinghouse".

The US DVD released by Martini Entertainment/Slasher Video includes both the Theatrical Version and the Director's Cut which is roughly 58 minutes longer. While the theatrical version is already too long, the Director's Cut goes overboard and gives you even more pieces of idiotic content. The gardener can be seen more often, the private investigator sits around in his car much longer and there is more of the horrendous special effects, bikini girls, nudity - and Jim in his leopard underwear. If you do not know what you are in for, stick to the theatrical version. Fans of the movie should probably watch the Director's Cut. The DVD has a lot of bonus material (including audio commentary from John Wintergate and Kalassu) and thus is the go-to experience if you want to know everything about "Boardinghouse".

Lets finish this introduction with a memorable quote from the movie which Richard spurts out when he comes to Jim's pool for the first time:

"What is this? A harem?"
"No."
"Shit!"
