Storyline

When Paige Hopkins begins working at a halfway house for degenerate teenage girls, she believes that her syrupy sweet disposition is just what the girls need to find their path to redemption. But these hardened street girls show Paige that she couldn't be more out of place. So Paige quickly adapts to their ways - which includes beatings, torture and even murder - all delivered with a smile. Gradually, it becomes clear that she may be more troubled than any of her charges. Written by Brain Damage Films

Better than expected
11 June 2010 | by (Gippsland, Australia) – See all my reviews

The plot of 'Caregiver' is quite clichéd, but the film itself ends up being rather likable despite this. Paige (Åsa Wallander) is a new staff member at a halfway house for teenage girls whose sweetness and light exterior belies her dark true nature. The girls themselves fall into various stereotypes of delinquent teenagers, and are portrayed with varying levels of acting talent. Rebeka Montoya (Monique) is the stand-out, both in terms of beauty and ability, while Kali Hawk is also appealing as Tania.

The film isn't perfect, by any means. The flash backs are a little too obvious, Paige's background is a little too trite and the presence of one character, Krysta, (played by Jeanie Marie, who seems to be better known for more adult entertainment) seems a gratuitous excuse to have a woman wandering around completely naked for a bit. But as straight-to-video movies go, you could do a lot worse. Despite its flaws, it somehow manages to remain entertaining, provided that the viewer watches in the right spirit.

All in all, 'Caregiver' is an entertaining horror/thriller that is worth a try if you stumble upon it on DVD.
