Stylish Non-traditional Horror/Thriller
5 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film has some great moments in it. Recall that it is a first film from writer/director Boris Undorf. It has style and is not nearly the bore that one reviewer claimed. In fact, it's far more worthy of attention than most of the garbage that I've seen in theaters or on DVD lately.

I refer to it as horror/thriller only because I don't know how else it could be categorized. It has a great use of color and has unnerving scenes that make you squirm - most notably the mother's insistence that her daughter strip for her and another scene in which the mother's lover "makes a pass" at the young girl. I felt increasingly uncomfortable as I watched the main character, wondering how she could stay sane at all in her nightmare-fairytale world.

It's a shame that more people can't give this movie a try. These days, "horror" cinema seems to be made up of films about topless airheads who are tortured to death or psycho killers who go from one cliché to the next until it seems that the only things that have been changed are the names in the same tired old story.

If you are looking for horror clichés like "the sheriff who just can't help because there's no proof" or "let's go check out that weird noise but first we should have sex" then you aren't going to like this film. But if you are looking for an actual story with a set-up and a fresh character piece then this is worth a look.
