A fascinating, and shocking, study of illness and medical ethics!
8 August 2009 | by (San Francisco Bay, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie was a pleasant surprise for me! If you are debating about watching this film because you think it its a "vampire" movie (due to inaccurate reviews/synopses in many locations) i am happy to tell you this movie has nothing to do with the vampires and only minimally dabbles in issues related to the supernatural.

Cravings (Daddy's Girl in UK) is actually a well written, acted, and cerebral thriller about a psychiatrist trying to help a mysterious teenage girl he believes may be suicidal. However, this doctor has some emotional issues of his own to deal with, and he gets to deeply and personally involved with the patient and her single Mother. The girl initially appears in the hospital as a possible suicide attempt because she cut hr wrist, and he believes the girl may be suffering from depression.

The shocking, stomach churning, and very dangerous truth behind his patient's increasingly bizarre and dangerous behavior is far worse than depression. When the doctor finally realizes the shocking and very serious depth of the girls illness, he finds that he has become trapped with the girl and her increasingly dangerous manipulation. When he finally asks for help, its too late, because he allowed himself to break the rules of medical ethics and crosses the line. The ending is a satisfying and completely unexpected twist! The movie starts moving quickly, and I enjoyed the director's skillful method of steadily ratcheting up the tension from beginning to end a PERFECTLY steady pace. I mean there is no lull or boring parts. It snagged me in within the first few minutes. The movie truly felt like it was accelerating, exposing me to a few mildly disturbing events at first but then things get continuously more shocking, disturbing, and eventually rather gory right until the credits roll.

Excellent movie! If you like deep psychological thrillers or horror films then this is a must pick up!
