A True Mess
11 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is just a thrown together, anything goes horror movie. There is almost no groundwork set for the characters. There has been a horrible fiery car accident which kills a man and his young daughter. Then, later, her brother and his wife and daughter move into he old house. For whatever reason, the first daughter decides to inhabit the new girl and she becomes evil and dangerous. The mother is tortured for some reason, even though she is not a bad person. I suppose it's an attack on women, whom the original father didn't think much of. There are a series of attacks, using a doll, and hypnotic images, to do away with people who aren't liked. So it goes. Not much here, not to mention an incredibly awful print.
