The House of Yes

On the 1983 Thanksgiving Day a student named Marty Pascal (Hamilton) brings his new fiancée, Lesly (Spelling) to his home to meet his family at their McLean, Virginia estate for the very first time. Marty's obviously hesitant and nervous about the introduction of his fiancé to his family, he has informed that he will bring a guest but didn't specify who the guest was to him. Marty's family then prepares both for an impending hurricane and his arrival. Marty's twin sister named Jacqueline (Posey) whom he's very close to was recently released from her psychiatric hospital, so she's ecstatic about him coming back. She's super excited until she finds out about the "friend" he's bringing home. She then starts showing signs of her mental instability including weird mood swings.  Jackie lives with her mom and younger brother Anthony (Prinze, Jr.). They are all quite protective over her because of her condition. Meanwhile, Marty and Lesly are at the home, but Mrs. Pascal seems to be suspicious and hesitant against her soon to be daughter-in-law. Furthermore, Lesly is quite oblivious to the entire tumultuous nature of Marty's family. It is obvious to her that Marty is very much in love with her "normalcy" and that their engagement was a way for Marty to break the strong mold between him and his family. As the hurricane intensifies, Marty and Lesly are stranded in their house until the hurricane lets up. After they met Lesly, Jackie-O comes near her to a melt-down in her bathroom sink, but suddenly gains back her composure and weirds Lesly out. Jackie playfully but strangely interrogates Lesly about the love life she has with Marty, even going to the extent of asking graphic details on their sexual escapades. She then informs Lesly about a nearby ex girlfriend of Marty's, where he shared quite an intense affair in his youth, she even says that there may be a "reunion".
