When Wendell and David are carrying the blond girl; she has a denim miniskirt, then denim pants and different shoes, then back to the denim miniskirt and original shoes. When "she" has long pants, this is obviously the camera operator they are carrying to get the point of view of the person being carried. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Francis Hamilton: What does it mean to be happy? To be content in the world around you? Mom used to say it was family. That family was the heart of everything, even existence. Without it, there's nothing. She would always have these simple answers that somehow would sound so brilliant. And then she died. My father died along with her. Shortly after that, my brother David had to sell the farm where we grew up. Now we're just trying to be an ordinary family. Trying to figure out where we fit in the ...

Loved it!
20 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The description of this film did not excite me overly, as I really despise the "people being horrible to other people" subgenre of horror. Boring.

But, there was a projector glitch in the previous Horrorfest film I'd been attending, and they gave us free passes, I was already at the theater, I figured "Why not?" I very nearly walked out in the middle of the opening sequence, because it looked to be very much a "people being horrible to other people" cliché, but I decided to stick it out and I'm glad I did. Best film of the festival.

I thought the story was engaging, and while the violence and gore on camera was minimal, it was effective. After twenty minutes, I WANTED to see how and why this family was so screwed up. While I started to have my suspicions about the twist at the end, it wasn't until just very shortly before it was revealed.
