A barmy Housewife, or eccentric sleuth
26 September 2003 | by trvwatsonSee all my reviews

I am not a big fan of British Horror Movies, but this one was a welcoming surprise, i knew Helen Mirram was a fantastic actress, from seeing her in other roles, and she was brilliant in this role, the film is based around a married woman who suspects her husband is to blame for a series of murders, in her home town, the reasons for this are quite simple, as your made to believe that she is completely barmy, due to serving time in a mental home, this plays a big role in the movie, and so makes you believe it is all in her mind, but is it.

A really good movie, and any chance to see Helen Mirram sporting a northern accent is well worth a glance.
