Entertaining, intelligent, well done!
25 November 2008 | by (Europe) – See all my reviews

In brief, this film is about a family of crooks who own a house somewhere outside a small town in the post-WWII United States. They have developed numerous ways to swindle money and goods out of various strangers who happen to stop by their house which looks like a regular country-side family motel. Be sure, they're real masters of this dangerous but profitable business. However, some serious misunderstandings and suspicions grow up between the family members, and here comes the final game with a nice twist at the end.

The story line is very good as well as the acting. Sara Downing (Kate) is the central character and her performance is quite impressive, but I would say that my favourite actor in this film is William McNamara (Hugh Babcock aka Tulsa). His role is short but you wouldn't find the final really amusing without it. In general, this is a very well done low budget film.
