Storyline

The religious teenager Angie Albright moves to a small town to study Art History in college. She finds a weird roommate and befriends the student and former altar boy Rick. Angie decides to babysit to raise money to buy a bed and she finds an advertisement to work at the distant Stanton Farm in the countryside. She is welcomed by Jim Stanton and his wife Violet that are seeking a babysitter for their son Sam and they make arrangements for Friday night. Meanwhile Angie has the sensation that someone is stalking her and she goes to the police station and reports to Chief Dinneli. On Friday night, Angie's car breaks and Rick gives a ride to Angie to go to the farm. When she is alone with Sam, a stranger breaks in the farmhouse and Angie saves Sam from the man. Soon she learns that she is in the house of evil and nothing is like she thought it would be. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

One of the worst horror movies I have seen.
28 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

Since some of you might want to watch this movie (which I totally don't recommend), I will review it without going into details.

In my opinion, this was a very bad horror movie. The story was really bad, and the movie wasn't even scary. Some things did not make sense at all, and had no connection to the story, -> like the priest's behavior for instance. It was a waste of time watching the movie, and it extremely boring all the way.

The only positive thing I could see, was how the killer was so cynical and psychopathic, and his acting was good. There was also an interesting twist, but then the ending spoiled that too (in my opinion).
