I have gotten nothing but pure disgust from watching this film
11 April 2012 | by Thrill_KillZSee all my reviews

I really should have known exactly what kind of things were to go down in this film, and for the most part I did. I love horror thriller's of all kinds but this film fell between the crack's of genre's in a way. You know that there will be an offensive abusive mother doing horrible & abusive things to her children, except for the son who is shadowed in the background in a lot of the scenes as for his reasons as for how he acted they never really explain.He doesn't even get a line.

Well as the film begins the normal & balanced father walked out on the family(and I don't blame him a bit as the film progresses) and this completely ruins the already abusive alcoholic mother. As to what follows, the things the mother says & does are just offensive to watch, even though you already know to expect the worst from her. There was nothing interesting, exciting, entertaining or fulfilling about this film, it just leaves you disgusted period! I highly recommend avoiding this waste of film & what will be a waste of your time. 2.5/10
