Pleasantly Surprised...Pretty Dang Good! :-)
9 June 2017 | by Tina WillisSee all my reviews

This was a pleasant surprise. Most films like this (no big Hollywood star, lower budget as in not a ga-zillion bucks, smaller production company etc...) are just slightly different levels of BAD. I have rated them from 2 to 4 most times. This one is different!

Even with numerous characters introduced, each actor did very well. THAT in itself is a huge difference in these types of films. The first 40 minutes lays a nice solid foundation presenting a story about full characters that I came to like, dislike and/or suspect. From the main family of characters to the small town ass-hole cops, an ex-boyfriend, to the weird dude from down the road. Some may find this part of the movie, slow paced, but I found it essential.

If inconsistencies tend to bother you, there aren't huge ones here, and very few that I noticed but honestly there were one or two...mostly the same you find in many horror stories, but because every thing else was so nicely done I was able to forget it easily and just enjoy the flow.

The score was a bit weird, particularly in an early scene. They used a tinkling music box sound, that in the first part of the movie sounded a bit odd to me, but when it was used again it was more appropriate. And THIS is just my tastes and my preferences. You may not even notice it.

I really enjoyed that there were surprises and twists! One right after another! After the first 40 minutes it really picks up a rapid pace, and soon, all the characters that were the possible "bad guy" gets killed off so quickly I was left wondering who the heck it could possibly be!

The last 20 minutes, several things happen that is unusual and different than the average horror film. I don't want to get too detailed and ruin it for you but will warn you there are a few clichés...but since there were enough twists to the story I think it made up for the few there were.

The bad guy, was simply yet sufficiently scary. The killings/blood/violence done realistically shocking but not over the top gory for that unnecessary gross out value.

Then right at the very end, when you think all the twists have been shown, they give ya another one.

So a very nice viewing indeed!

I hope this review helps you to decide whether this is the type of film you could enjoy or not.
