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.

Excellent excellent excellent. Acting, writing, directing, cinematography, and scoring all superb. This is what horror films are all about. It's about time someone made a good one. I am watching the original very soon. I highly recommend this film.
In this day and age it is rare to find a gem like this. It is so atmospheric. The dark foreboding environment which embodies this film is fantastic. Set in deep country during a horrible flood, this follows the story of a sadistic family and their ghastly rituals. I won't say much else. It's better not to know a lot about this film going in to it.
