Two sisters, Grace and Violet, bound together by more than blood, live a reclusive life in a large mansion, detached from society and reality too. They have a plan. It's hardly conventional, but the outcome nine months later is all that counts. Whatever they do they must not fall in love with the man that they choose to ensnare. Set in contemporary New England. Written by
Psychological thriller has Violet (Alicia Silverstone) luring a drifter (Joe Anderson) back to her house where she and her sister Grace (Siena Guillory) have some wicked plans. The two sisters appear to be trapped in the house by their child spirits and the drifter might have walked into a deadly game. The main reason for me recording this film was to see what Silverstone had been doing recently but unless you're a fan of hers then there's no real reason to watch this movie. I kept watching and watching hoping for something to make sense but it never did and the movie just kept getting more confusing as it went along. Even at the end of the flick I tried to make sense of what I had just watched and I still couldn't make head or tails out of it. I could pick this thing to death with various logical issues like how the two sisters aren't working and yet have everything they do but that would be pointless because there's one goof after another. The basic story of why the girl's need this drifter never makes any sense as it appears a big portion of the film was cut out leaving us with a big mess. The three actors turn in decent, if not good, performances but I'm not sure you can blame them too much since the screenplay offers very little. The thriller aspect of the film is never thriller and the erotic moments aren't any better. As Silverstone is still sticking by her "no nudity" clause, her sex scenes border on PG-rated as she always has her clothes on, which pretty much kills anything erotic. The complete film is a major mess from the start so it's best to stay clear or at least keep your fast-forward button near by.
