Terrible waste of time.
4 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We gave this movie a chance because we felt sorry for Tatum O'Neill trying to make a comeback. But we were let down. Her speaking parts were few and far between and the plot was non-existent. The whole story is she is the crazy sister that just got out of mental hospital. Children in this movie were beyond annoying and pointless to the film. The trailer made it seem like a thriller but it could not have been less.

We regret the $6 dollars we paid to watch this on pay-per-view. This movie reminds me of Oprah Winfrey's Beloved, an unintentional comedy because it is so ridiculous with over the top acting and a stupid story.
