I want to sleep with this woman. With one eye open, of course.
2 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I couldn't help but notice that there were some really nice looking women in this movie and--. What's that you say? Get to the damn review? What's this film about? Okay, okay.

A woman goes to extreme measures to get her dream home after greedy sellers back out of a deal to sell to her. No doubt she had some inspiration from her childhood when developers were forcing people out of their homes in her neighborhood by using underhanded and criminal tactics. Her tale is told alternating between her murderous present and the years and days leading up to it so that we understand her motivation and see her transformation.

What can I say?

If you're squeamish make sure you eat your lunch AFTER you see this. --But then again, you might not want to eat anything after either. The solution for you may be to avoid this altogether. On the other hand, if gore does not particularly bother you, or you are a gore hound, this is your movie.The instigator of all this horror is a woman who just flipped.

Right after the sellers turned her down, you knew by the way the camera was used to shoot her walking on the street that here was a woman who had just lost everything; she feels numb; she hardly sees, hears, or feels anything around her; her heart's desire (since she was a child) has been snatched from her when she thought it was so close.

Imagine the intensity of the anger and desperation that must eventually have taken hold of her later. First disbelief and hopelessness. Suicidal thoughts might naturally have followed (after all, her dream was dead). This woman however, decided she wasn't going down without a fight. But we saw indications earlier with her father that this woman could be ruthless; that she wasn't so innocent. Still we are not prepared for the "helter skelter" sadistic cruelty she unleashes.

Lastly, let me say that it was hard to feel sympathy for this woman because of her sadism (some of it, it seemed to me, spiteful and gratuitous) towards people who had nothing to do with thwarting her dream except maybe they were able to rent where she wanted to live. So I found I was always rooting for her victims. Sadly, in vain (the bitch is a killing machine). Nice looking woman though and some others as well. If I could manage to take that big-ass knife away from her and all her other implements of terror I think I could.... Okay, okay, I got you. Boloxxxi out. Love.
