Creepy
4 November 2002 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

For those of you who may be confused, this isn't a movie per se, it's more of a video game. You are shown clips of the story, afterwhich you are asked a series of questions and are given a chance to search around the house in which the action takes place, finding clues and sometimes interacting with the characters. That said, it is very very easy to get yourself totally immersed in Tender Loving Care. The acting at times is less than par, but despite this the characters seem very deep. The "game" aspect makes it take a while to finish the whole thing, but it is very worth it at the end when you are presented with a complete psychoanalysis based on your answers to questions and your searches through the house. I've played it through more than once, it is well worth the time.
