Danika is a thirty-five year old overprotective mother with a beautiful family composed of her successful husband Randy, two sons - the teenager Kurt and the little Brian, and one teenager daughter - Lauren. Danika is disturbed and near a breakdown, having dark and terrifying nightmares and daydreams; distracted in her work and consequently committing mistakes; and under psychiatric treatment with Dr. Evelyn. Her problems originated when her husband cheated on her with the nanny of their children, breaking her confidence in him. The lack of attention caused by her disturbed mind leads her family into tragedy. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Very Good
30 November 2009 | by (yourhdd') – See all my reviews

This movie has some depth so if your just into blood,guts, and mindless action and gore(which I love too) it may not be for you. This is a drama/Horror with a little more depth then your average horror..I have seen this movie a few times on cable and saw the screener before it came out. It took me 3 times to fully grasp everything that was going on with Danika. For those who think its only people involved in the production making good reviews, I feel sorry that you couldn't grasp this film. I have absolutely nothing to do with this film and I give it 8 stars.

Marissa Tomei is still very Hot and a great actress who gave a stellar performance. Watching her come unglued emotionally on screen is very believable. She carries most of the film, but the rest of the performances are excellent too. An all around great film, good acting, cast, plot, etc for those who don't like spoon fed plots.
