Dear potential viewers, don't let low ratings dissuade you!
9 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From my experience, a lot of the reviewers on IMDb can never be pleased! I have seen amazing movies like "The Afflicted" suffer the wrath of those who want to turn a blind eye to reality.

The subject matter of "The Afflicted" is that of a true story, and this movie is an excellent depiction of what really happens! Unlike many other movies, this movie causes the viewer to actually feel something. Even if those feelings are anger, remorse, and disgust, the movie has still gripped your attention and caused an emotion. Isn't that what makes a movie successful? Not every movie should show lovers dancing in fields or show zoo animals bonding with humans. A happily ever after ending does not constitute an excellent movie.

America needs to grow up! A true story of bad parenting should be rated higher than Toy Story! This movie reminds us to be more aware of our surroundings instead of watching "feel-good movies" that are dumbing us down! Hollywood has spoiled us with movies of redemption, and victory, and above all else, fantasy.
