Bad Enough To Remain Very Watchable
14 December 2005 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I didn't think THE HAUNTED HEART ( As this movie is known in the UK ) was going to be up to much and it wasn't but this didn't stop me from enjoying it immensely . As ElviraVixen pointed out it's awful but will hold your interest for most of its running time .

The plot itself revolves around Olivia Hendrix a rather sad and lonely middle aged woman who has only one son Tom and only one friend Mrs Jay and because of her sad loneliness she smothers young Tom too much while she listens to Mrs Jay too much . When Tom decides to leave the nest things start to head for a collision course

The production values are somewhat poor and if it wasn't for some strong language you'd think this was yet another TVM but what makes it so watchable is the performances and Michael Angella's disturbingly seedy script . Granted it's rather awful but I did enjoy Mrs Jay ( Superbly played by Olympia Dukakis ) attempted seduction of Tom and the quite laughable dialogue : " Fuchsia ? But I hate fuchsia " and " Do you think you can remember that you stupid bitch ? " It might be a good idea to wear a diaper while watching this since you might just wet yourself laughing . The climax is gloriously contrived and incomprehensible but sums up the movie perfectly and my only real criticism is that we never hear Pink Floyd's track Mother which almost certainly inspired this terrible but highly entertaining movie
