Odd Cult Comedy.
13 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

Trio of institutionalized women enter The Real World after comfort zone is irrevocably altered. Winters returns to condemned family home with friends in tow.

Attempt at alternate sanctuary is corrupted by the arrival of an unannounced Fourth Party. Bad taste laughs (the cemetery/escape scene), indifferent casting (with the exception of spell-casting Winters - some GREAT lines) & would-be confronting themes (an highly unusual "seduction") obscure the director's (seemingly) sincere efforts to Say Something. Flawed examination of "madness" suitable as an antidote to the current affectations of television's CHARMED & the downbeat (though admittedly more convincing) vibe of THE DEVONSVILLE TERROR. Moral: Always Take Your Medication.
