Kind of made me want to be a squatter.
20 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first, I was warned that this movie should be skipped, but on further investigation, it turned out that the person warning me had viewed another "Home Sweet Home," that I suppose was released around the same time. I'm glad he was mistaken, because this movie delivered.

Let's get one thing straight: this is an independent movie, so don't rent or buy it thinking that there will be Johnny Depp battling Transformers on another planet inhabited by the Na'vi. But, unlike a lot of other "Independent Films," this movie had blockbuster-type rhythm and suspense, that lasts for almost two full acts.

The directing and cinematography were very raw-felling - something I think worked very well for the overall look. And the acting, although limited in the script to a lot of screaming, crying and intimidation, had a lot of subtleties to it that very few horror movies (even though I consider this more of a suspense-thriller) usually have. And guys - if your wife or girlfriend want to watch a scary movie, this movie still has plenty of great eye candy.

I think the ending was my favorite part. No spoilers here, but let's just say I had a good conversation with my friend about it afterwards. Really well done.

This was overall a solid rental. I'll probably even buy it. Glad to see that movies with potential are still finding a voice in today's distribution marketplace.
