My friend sent this movie. And I was like OK Cool so I watched it and like it.
The movie is about a Family and there deadly secret the movie stars Karen Black and Eric Estrada.
Mrs. Mary Happ's life is not so different from the lives of most middle class, abandoned mothers, raising a lovely popular high school senior daughter and a bright pleasant jr high school son a bit of a loner. Sure money is at times in short supply, but thats true for most of us.
And while the family doesn't live high off the hog the have a comfortable home at the end of a secluded lane on a pleasant little lake a few miles of outside of town. Mary Happ has a good job. Its only drawback: Mary must occasionally be away from home, several days at a time. But (Livvy the daughter) and (Jeff the son)are responsible when they have to be so Mary has a few reservations about leaving them to care for themselves when she must travel.
Their lives are almost painfully normal except for Oliver, a young man about 18 years old. Livvy and Jeff don't know Oliver. Their mother thought it better that way. They never would have known of their "cousin"--and only other living relative --but for an incident at the private intitution where he was confined for many years--naked in a totally bare room with no sharp corners the only furniture a slab of stainless steel upon which he slept. Somehow Oliver got loose and wreaked havoc on the institution and its staff. Subdued with massive doses of tranquillizer--too massive--Oliver fell into a coma from which it is doubtful he will ever emerge.
Oliver's condition now requires 24 hour nursing care which Mrs. Happ cannot afford. Oliver must go home where his family can care for his needs around the clock. Mrs. Happ accept the inevitable but is concerned that the family secret somehow gets out.
His presence in the Happ household is unobtrusive at first. Within a short time Jeff takes a keen interestin his cousin taking over most of the burden of his care. Its about this time a peculiar presence begins to make itself known within the circles where jeff and livvy travel. Its about this time people start dying...horribly. its about this time too that jeff and livvy discover the real truth about Oliver. its more then kids should be asked to handle. And Mrs. Happ is out of town. She cannot help them....Prehaps no one can.
I thought the movie was good I like it...
