Editorial Reviews

Gwen Stevens (Alexandra Boylan) is at a crossroads in her life and needs a safe, quiet place to get her head together. But when she arrives at the house of her deceased parents in the remote New Mexico desert, she realizes that her peaceful refuge has become home to a pair of psychotic squatters with plans of their own. Now, miles from civilization and possible rescue, Gwen finds herself trapped, tormented and waging a desperate fight to escape the brutal intruders who have moved in…and who now want her life.

I saw this film at the Albuquerque film festival where it took the awards for Best Horror Movie and Audience Favorite. So when I ordered it, I was surprised by the extreme polarization of reviews here. Evidently tastes and expectations differ greatly when a film does not fit the usual mold.

This indie home invasion thriller does not gratuitously splash blood for effect: the plot is more thoughtful than that. It primarily hinges on the contrasting characters of two women. Rachel Cantu plays the part of a sexy but dangerously psychopathic woman to near perfection, sometimes ditzy, sometimes coldly calculating, a person who enjoys toying with the lives of others. Director John Graham effectively uses her craziness and unpredictability to build suspense, to amuse and to shock. There are just enough comedic moments in the movie to keep one wondering just how nasty Cantu and her criminal lover, played by Christopher Dempsey, can be.

Alexandra Boylan plays opposite Cantu (in every sense) as a naive girl who seeks to take possession of the deserted family home in New Mexico. Empty when she arrives, it turns out to be the headquarters of Cantu and her sidekick: to drive her off, they harass and terrify her; unsuccessful, they dramatically change tactics.

The remote, inhospitable desert location in New Mexico creates a mood that sets this film apart in its genre: videographer Rick Galli uses the harsh desert light to good effect. The isolation creates options and sets limits that make the plot credible.

Boylan, now deprived of her car, is trapped in her home by the desert, while her tormentors plot their next move.

The best thing about this movie is that it is only an hour and 15 minutes long. This is the stupidest movie I have seen in a long time.
Te heroine does things that make no sense and that no sane person would do in her circumstances. In the middle of the night, in a remote house in the middle of the desert, a stranger comes to the door and she readily opens it.
When the two killers are attempting to get in the house, she does not call for the police, but instead calls a girlfriend. When the friend arrives in the morning, the heroine is hiding in the closet loading a rifle, which she leaves behind in the closet when she walks outside.
Both women are being stalked by killers with guns, both women have cell phones; neither thinks to call for help. Instead they call each other from different hiding places in the house.
Each woman is hidden away with no weapons, one in a shed and the other in a camper parked in the driveway, the killers are standing in the driveway between the shed and the camper, holding guns, these two morons, talking to one another on the phone and still not thinking to call the police, decide their best action would be to make a run for it….right past the armed psychos.

The female psycho is a terrible actress who over acts in what appears to be characterizations “Borrowed” from Sherry moon Zombie in House of 1,000 corpses and The Devils Rejects. Unfortunately this wannbe does not a tenth of Zombie’s creepiness.
The final insult was the ridiculous ending that left me saying “WTF??? Who would even do that?”

I caught this film in Albuquerque (Aliens and Outlaws)...and....it rocks! It's taught, gripping, and beautiful! I have never wanted to visit a locale so badly and steer completely away from it at the same time! (You'll know what I mean when you see the film).

The lead truly morphs before your eyes to rise up to the brutal challenges she faces. The villain is sexy and scary! I recommend this riveting adventure to anyone who enjoys high octane in their films.

'Home Sweet Home' manages to walk the thriller/horror line but remain extremely accessible to many film goers, and doesn't rely on gross outs and gore to keep audiences in their seats. Can't wait to pick up my blu ray of this film and drool over the cinematography on my 62" HD LED monitor! I"m also looking forward to seeing the making of featurette. My son is studying to be a film maker and wants to see how such a film was pulled off at its budget category.

Two thumps up for 'Home Sweet Home!'

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By THE MOVIE GUY on May 20, 2013
Format: DVD
The standard formula home break-in film consists of victims being tied up, men take a beating, women sexually molested, then the tables are turned. The more clever ones involve a mystery relationship somewhere for which clues are dropped and not just a creepy David Hess/Eric Roberts bad guy. 13 minutes into this film, we realize our bad guy is a professional and the formula may be adjusted.

The film does a great job by building character by simply showing us the victim's home. They have a son who is at her mom's house while our once-a-weekers are out on date night. He likes vinyl, a man after my own heart and she likes to role play, a woman after my own...well. We get to know them the way the intruder knows them. Meanwhile the intruder remains a mystery to us, just as he does them.

In many ways the "mechanical" aspects were good. The characters were established properly. The scene was done properly. The soundtrack was simple, but effective. The details worked well, down to leaving the faucet drip for your cat. (Cats prefer flowing water.)

The problem with this film is that there was no dialouge interaction between our bad guy and the victims. This was done by designed, but made for a boring film. It made no sense creating talkies. The film was too stagnant even with the bloody scenes. You keep wondering, "Where is this going?" and when it gets there, you go, "Oh. Okay. That's it? That's the ending we waited an hour and twenty minutes for? Could we see more of the cheerleader's outfit please?"

Parental Guide: Token F-bomb (WTF spoken). No sex or nudity.
