Right from the start I was reminded of the 1967 film Our Mother's House, which featured strange kids dealing with strange situations and even stranger parents. The similarities remain, but the tone of this film is much different, starting off as a slow, almost idyllic dream and veering off into a nightmare. In fact, it's almost too slow at the beginning, and deceptively so, since once the real story begins to be told, it picks up speed and never stops moving. You'll also guess the twist early on, then you'll have to guess again, and then guess again, but guessing and being wrong a couple of times is a lot better than guessing and being right the first time. The horror elements are refreshingly not slash and dash slice and dice gore galore, but more of the growing dread variety, so despite the feeling of familiarity and the slow start, this movie is worth seeing.
