Storyline

A woman is tortured by the sudden disappearance of her only child years before. Obsessed with having another baby, she is devastated and driven to emotional crisis when discovering her new husband is infertile. Gripped by despair, the woman begins to resign herself to the bitter likelihood of never having another child. Striking up a friendship with two discarded young laborers hired to re-paint her son's now silent room, the three lost souls form a disturbing bond as the boys are led deeper into the woman's tormented world. Her family's suspicions of this unsettling new friendship sets off an irreversible series of events, leading to madness and murder as the horrors of the past collide with the sins of the present, ending in tragedy and terror.

Utter &%$#fest!
17 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

People who likes this "movie" must be:

A) Involved with this film student quality mishmash; i.e. friends/relatives of its director.

B) Serial killers/psychos in training.

C) Pseudo intellectual posers who think anything grainy, disjointed and deeply disturbing is "art."

It's no wonder we never saw this in theaters. We had hoped for more, since it was based on a story by Bram Stoker. Instead, what we got is a series of badly executed jump shots, irrelevant plot points, gratuitous nudity, poorly conceived "artistic" lighting, dizzy camera angles that are supposed to be "gritty", boring, meaningless still life shots, ridiculously bad acting, and accents that sound straight out of a faux coal mine. Wth?? An utterly nauseating waste of film. Just my opinion, of course!

Yes, folks, the emperor really IS naked!
