Goofs

During the water gun play in the Christmas scene, the son accidentally laughs when hit in the face with water. The sister glances at him and smirks slightly. The actors quickly go back to straight faces, so this was most likely unintentional. See more »

This was the height of pov shaky camera found footage type films...............
17 February 2013 | by nightwatch4773See all my reviews

As I am reviewing new films for IMDb, I like to occasionally go back down memory lane and review a film I saw in years past. Since last night I watched Apartment 143 another film of this sub genre ilk, I suddenly thought of the glory days of these particular films and Viola!!! Home Movie snuck into my mind. How can you go wrong here.....parents, one a reverend and the other a psychologist will 2 kids that lets just say are off the beaten path lurking down a 2 rut road. In other words very troubled and trouble is what they bring to the table in this moody, dark, creepy, foreboding and deeply insidious indie gem. I won't give anything away but I will say this, I had trouble walking by a park playground for months and I have seen almost every horror film out there. Pregnant females stay far away and males about to be a father watch and be warned. Both children deserve Oscar nominations for their haunting performances......
