Clever and Harrowing
3 April 2019 | by Richyb1See all my reviews

Pleasantly surprised and highly entertained by this low budget gem.

The writer kind of leads you down the path a little, I was like, oh god this is so predictable! WRONG! Totally threw some serious curve balls and I was gripped.

My wife really liked it and this is seriously high praise as she easily gets bored if films don't keep 'giving'. I think women especially mothers will find themselves unable to look away due to the horrific scenario the mother-to-be gets into - she is also the hero and damn she goes through the mill but not in that standard horror victim way.

The evil family in this movie are so creepy and they often make you cringe.

Matriarch is great - a fresh horror / thriller / creepy mash up.
