Jennifer McKenzie: Life was perfect. Until one day, a terrible day, something happened. One of those events that could turn your world upside down. I got an e-mail. And guess who it was from? Good old Windbag: my *grandmother*. She's coming to visit me. Out of the blue. What for, why now? And as usual, nothing but dramatic *bullshit* came out of her mouth.

Great movie!
23 February 2005 | by mindy_jo75See all my reviews

This movie was really impressive - we rented it expecting your typical low budget horror but it was not anything like that! it was basically a psychological horror in the tradition of the Bad Seed but much more interesting. I was shocked to find out that this girl had not been in anything else - she was amazing!! The only thing I didn't like about it was the ending, that was rather strange but I guess it was OK. The DVD had absolutely no extras which was disappointing on a movie like this. So I definitely recommend this - especially to those who like movies off the traditional track. Oh yeah and it kinda reminded me of Donnie Darko.
