Well, after seeing "The Good Mother" my heart was still racing. It was basically about,grieving mother,Eve Goode and her obsessive desire to be a caring, protective, loving, healing mother, who's recent victims happen to be recently orphaned Abby and Ethan Snow. Abby soon finds out that her foster mother's obsessive desire is as extreme as it is deadly, when she finds out her foster mother's frightening secret.

Sequel to The Glass House, which itself was entertaining, "The Good Mother" fit along well with the previous plot. It was quite close to being the same thing.

I personally enjoyed the film, It was suspenseful at times and very interesting.The acting was good and the emotion was evident.I recommend it, to all who enjoy suspenseful,and thrilling films with a little bite to it.
