Very original and Very entertaining
4 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie knowing absolutely nothing about it other than that it was based on a book. I was shocked by what I saw, but in a very good way. I watch a lot of horror movies, and while I do enjoy most of them, it does get rather boring watching the same ole plots get rehashed and redone. Finally we are given something new and just plain out insane.

The story itself was very original, but the execution is truly what was the best about this whole film. They do such a good job of just presenting you with a family that you hardly ever see in these types of movies. A dysfunctional who appears normal is something that has been portrayed in horror films in the past, but this film does it in a way that will just shock and awe you.

The score for the film is actually pretty great. It was full of songs im sure pretty much nobody has ever heard before. Every single song really did a good job of complimenting the mood of each scene, however some of the songs did seem a bit out of place.

There were some pretty gross scenes, but nothing you haven't seen before. I did see the youtube video of the man complaining about the content of this film. I do not believe that he was a plant since I do kind of see where he is coming from, but the movie is not nearly as disturbing as he makes it out to be.

My review makes this this movie out to be the prefect horror film, but it did have its faults. It does start to get a tad boring towards the middle, but it does end up picking up pretty well. Also, the ending seemed a bit rushed.

This was a very enjoyable horror film. I recommend it to someone who is just tired of the same ole same ole crap. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

8/10
