Will never watch again
20 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

My dear friend Kayla challenged me with this movie and I accepted. I don't regret watching it, but it truly is a disgusting movie. The things that "Mother" Maggie does are beyond horrific and unimaginable. The children fear her- no...no, it's beyond fear. They're in sheer terror. I'm disgusted with the fact that these kinds of movies intrigue me, but this one was far too much for my psyche. If you can, please try to avoid watching this. The things that are depicted in this film are unbelievably cruel. I was even on the verge of tears at one part. And that was only in one of the beginning scenes. So all in all, I give the movie 2 stars. Sorry but, the acting was the only thing I really liked.
