13 April 2015 | by tikabrewerSee all my reviews

I am a thriller and horror film aficionado but this clever, suspenseful movie kept me guessing throughout. The character development, which is often lacking in today's thrillers, is akin to Hitchcock and Christie. The location, on a large estate in the dead of winter, sets the perfect tone for the movie. Excellently cast with stellar performances by Judd Hirsch as the father and Ryan O'Nan who plays Tommy, his troubled adopted son. C.S. Lee fans from Dexter will not want to miss him in this movie. As the film progresses, you begin to wonder if Tommy is crazy or if perhaps, there is truth to his accusations about his father. Caroline Lagerfelt, who plays Tommy's mother is the perfect mix of caring mother and doting wife. She remains neutral for most of the film although there is a pivotal scene where you can see her doubts rise. One by one, the family members begin to unravel. Mr. Wechsler has done a fantastic job developing the storyline, which leads up to an ending you did not see coming.
