Mum and Dad, and their 'adopted' children, Birdie & Elbie, work at the airport. The family live off whatever they scavenge from cargo holds, offices and hotels - including a steady stream of transient workers who populate the airport's soulless hub. When Lena, a young Polish office cleaner, is befriended by Birdie, she gets drawn into a nightmarish world of torture, murder and perversity. Imprisoned in a suburban House of Horrors and designated a 'Mummy's Girl', Lena's only options appear to be to become part of the family - and join them in their insanity - or die. Written by
So, of course this isn't at all heartwarming... what you get here is a grim portrayal of the mundane lives of an everyday, normal, psychopathic "family". There seem to be a fair few critics of this movie, mostly along the lines of "It's crap", "Too gory", etc...
Well, NO! Maybe if you want something to do all your thinking for you, this will suck... Here, we're given great attention to detail, it starts off very naturally, the dialogue throughout this movie is superb and (unfortunately/uncomfortably) all too natural. This seems like a normal family, yet we're dragged (bloodily) through their degradation, here we get a film where the horror is not all in your face gore, it's unsettling and dirty feeling. My only possible complaint here is that it may actually be too much like the lives of real serial killers, I can't help thinking of Fred & Rose West when I watch this.
As an aside, this movie really gets a lot better with repeat viewing, maybe this is where the complaints come in... some of the dialogue is very, very funny and you'll feel bad for laughing.
