Unexpectedly unique & suspenseful
I was hesitant to throw this film on initially, never having heard of it, and the poster didn't scream my style of film, but u was pleasantly surprised with a slow burning suspense feature that held my interest during the entirety of its runtime.
A family reunited when the patriarch Discovers his impending death, what is to be a family reunion quickly spins out of control when the disgruntled twin brother of a pair of siblings adopted by the man, arrives and his mind unravels, or does it?
Solid acting through out, and interesting storyline, I was not disappointed with the movie, it isn't exactly frightening, but it's very tense and surprising at times, I would highly reccomend this film to others, it needs to be recognized more than it has been, excellent little film.
