Storyline

In the center of a monotonous suburban existence, Sarah lives silently and in subservience to her icy husband Patrick. They have been together far too long, and Patrick's affections for his wife have all but vanished. Instead, his sexual urges are tempting him to lust after their own son. Realizing how far gone her husband is, Sarah undertakes drastic, shockingly sickening measures to salvage some sense of her life and purge her years of festering resentment. Written by Johnny Camden

No-Budget HG Lewis wanna-be baby vomit
4 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This incredibly over-rated film gained notoriety due to it's awful HG Lewis-caliber effects. What it rots down to is someone who commits self-mutilation in some of the lamest effects seen since the late 60's. This film is so impossibly over-rated that I think every positive review it has comes from it's inept 'special' effect crew. The plot is non-existent, the gore is 60's caliber dime-store dummy material and the whole film is an exercise in tedium. Who knew that such a short film could be so boring and tedious, but these hacks provided compacted boredom. Even the sound is muted and boring. The colors pale and boring. The direction is meandering and boring. Even the hack actors seem bored by their source material. This is the most over-rated pile of garbage I may have ever seen, and I am a HUGE horror fan.
