very impressed........
25 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have just finished watching this film and to be honest I was very impressed. The acting was better than average and the plot kept me watching till the very end. I must add though that the film is very sick but if you like that sort of thing you should be OK. The story is somewhat simple but that does not distract you from the events within the movie. Having seen the IMDb rating of only 4.4 i was very shocked as in my opinion i would definitely rate it a 7.5. Hope to the see the director make another film soon. Having watched a lot of the b rated horror movies lately for example Hold your breath which in my opinion was utter rubbish, the acting was atrocious and the storyline appalling. Please watch this movie(The helpers) as it is well worthy of only 77mins of your precious time.
