Gender roles turned around here....solid female roles all around. Give it a watch!
11 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Unique home invasion style flick that has two front and center female characters as the heroine and the psychopath. Shot in New Mexico with some gorgeous SW vistas, this movie almost moves like a stylish art film / dream like and not the typical by the numbers horror / thriller.

What got me on this, was the two female leads playing such polar opposites. As a writer who won a screenplay award for stronger roles for women in film, I was thrilled to see this in HOME SWEET HOME. It's always nice to see the hero being played as a "strong woman", but it was even cooler to see the "complete bonkers" role played by a woman as well, where that is usually dominated by men and the women are left as the stupid sidekick. Tables turned around here....the male role is the "stupid" sidekick. Nicely played out by the filmmakers Alexandra Boylan and John KD Graham.

Not overly brutal as some home invasion flicks can be, but there is a nice spat of brutality towards the end, LOL.

Cinematography is very "dreamlike" with great SW vistas, as I said earlier. Soundtrack moves from creepy ambiance (always a winner for me) to what I thought sounded like South Western rock....cool.
