A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank rules his family with a rigorous fervor, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost. As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris and Rose are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family. As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years.

Remake of a Mexican Film with the Same Title, this is a Slow-Burn Atmospheric Movie that is Rewarding for Patient Viewers but Fans of Zombie Fests and Torture Porn Gruesomeness will be Looking Elsewhere for Perverted Pixs.
An Old Testament Type Flood is Raining Down on this Nutbag Family, Perhaps a Way for Their God to Reek Wrath on these Sinners. At the Very Least it Uncovers Clues. The Restraint Applied to this Horror Film was a Gamble with Current Trendy Filmmakers Trying Desperately to Outdo Each Other with One-Ups-Man-Ship and Leave a Mark Among Critics and Fanboys to Stake Out Claims of the Next Big Thing.
This is Well Acted and Staged and the Open Ending has Sequel Written All Over It. The Filmmakers Disappoint, However in Storytelling that is Frustratingly Ambiguous about the Family's Motivations and the Back Story is Felt to be Unclear.
Overall, Recommended for the More Cerebral Horror Fans, if there are Any Remaining, and B-Movie Buffs Searching for Something Off-Beat.
