Storyline

An Alberta small-town police chief officially finds no suspect in the bloody stabbing to death of 'working girl' Jane McGill. Her daughters are adopted two years later, trough his friend Alvin, by a London couple who don't qualify yet for a correct procedure. Grace, the eldest, behaves viciously to Tess Palmer, who gave up her psychotherapist job to become their full-time mother, yet as sweetly as her little sister to new father Alfie Palmer, a struggling entrepreneur, but aggressively too toward his son Charlie, from an earlier marriage, and his grandmother. Whe the strain on the marriage becomes unbearable, Tess takes Grace to Alberta to examine suspicions about a dark past arisen during written overseas contacts. Written by KGF Vissers

Whoever did this DVD cover owns me 4 Euros!
21 January 2010 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

OK, I must admit I was very well deceived by the guys who did the DVD cover of this film and also the ones which translated its title to Portuguese (in Portuguese edition movie's title is "A Filha do Mal" which means "Evil's daughter"). When I bought the DVD I was expecting something related to the horror genre, like the mentioned cover and title suggest, but when I decided to watch it another genre of movie appeared in my eyes: a family drama! But if it even was a good family drama, but not even that! It's really a cheap drama! Even the only good thing it had (a nice plot twist in the end, when it's found who really killed the girls' mother) was spoiled into a ridiculous action (???!!) scene that just proved even more how lame this movie is!!! It's a TV movie, OK, I know, It's a (very!) low cost production, OK, I know, but please don't make deceiving DVD covers like that anymore!!! That's all I ask!!! Whoever did this DVD cover owns me 4 Euros!
