Both Bret Harrison and Laura Prepon give remarkable performances that show their range as actors. The directing and editing make the film fast paced and consuming.
Still, this isn't a feel good movie. It's someone's like told in naked and brutal detail and that's where the magic of this film lies.
A criminal suggestive opening leads the audience into think of why and who are the people involved in the scene. The identity and motive of the people involved in the wrongdoings are not revealed, but it leaves the audience wondering and thinking. These notions will leave audience's with an ominous sense of forthcoming trouble, but when and where remains unknown until the appropriate moment when the audience least expects it. The audience might have the ability to guess why and who is behind the suggestive opening. However, the director and writer Robert Hall delivers several situations in the film that continue to cloud the audience's judgment and logic to get a clear idea of who and why. This displays that Hall has thoughtfully put together an intriguing story for the audience.
Shortly after the troubling opening, the audience gets to witness Jenny Graves (Ashley Laurence), who many will recognize from Hellraiser (1987), arrive to Alabama from Detroit with her two sons. Jenny seems to have fled something, which is never revealed, as they arrive to their new home in rural Alabama. In addition, her older son Green wonders if they can go trick or treating, but Jenny informs her son that they have missed Halloween.Read more ›
I Like Horror Movies
On another note, the film is nice. It is a good story of a talented, kind young man and his struggle with living in poverty and in an abusive home. It is the life story of Robert Hall who has done makeup for Teen Wolf and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It is definitely a low-budget feel. There are some heart-tugging moments though. I recommend. Especially to film buffs.
