Storyline

A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank rules his family with a rigorous fervor, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost. As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris and Rose are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family. As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years.

Very enjoyable movie, didn't get bored for a sec
11 February 2015 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

I would not call it a horror movie even if there were some bloody parts but it was for sure a good movie. Starting slow and building the suspense up every minute. I really enjoyed watching this movie. I guess they put it in the horror genre because some people might get offended by the story but I wasn't at all shocked. I'm pretty sure there must be sicko's like this in our miserable rotten world. If you want to watch a nice thriller with a good plot then you must for sure watch this movie. You won't regret it. Very underrated movie to me when I see the score he only gets. Compared to some really bad movies that still get like 4 stars it goes beyond my comprehension that this one doesn't even get 6 stars. Well I guess that it's every man to his taste.
