Not What I Was Expecting
23 December 2018 | by FoutainoflifeSee all my reviews

This film is about a man, known only as the student, who has sought out a quiet place to live while he works on a scientific theory. The place he finds is a home to a family of three that just so happens to be an isolated bunker. The family is odd but seem harmless enough that he chooses to move in. Not having all the rent, he is allowed to stay with the understanding that he can help out with chores and such to cover his outstanding debt.

The family is indeed odd being as it consists of the father, who considers himself an intellectual, the mother, who has a few issues and a son, who claims to be 8 but looks more like he is in his mid to late 20's. The son is the main focus in the family. He is homeschooled by his father but the mother is not satisfied with the boy's progress and she suggests that the student start tutoring the boy. There is an understanding that by doing this the student will have covered his debt. The parents have certain aspirations for their son and take his education quite seriously but we quickly learn that the boy is emotionally, mentally and socially underdeveloped. Without giving out spoilers, this is the movie's plot.

There is more going on than what meets the eye with this film and the longer you watch, the weirder and more perverse it gets. The film isn't bad but you need to have an interest in strange movies to enjoy it. There are plenty of moments where you can find yourself looking at the screen sideways, asking WTF with this one.

The pace of this film is a bit slow but I guess it should be in order to grasp the horror of the weird moments. I felt the actors were good portraying the individual oddities of their characters thus keeping the viewer interested in trying to figure them out.

This type of film isn't really my cup of tea but there is an audience out there that appreciates this branch of horror. I would suggest that if you are interested in blood, guts and violence, you'll be disappointed. However, if you are into situational horror it might be just what you are looking for.
