Editorial Reviews

In a small American town everyone wants to think they know their neighbors. Everything seems normal in Taylorsville, SC... Almost. Behind one family's door lies true-life horror. Maggie Stoddard (Leslie Easterbrook) is the mother of three daughters and a son. Her husband Hank (Kane Hodder) gets the family by with a small contracting buisness. The family seemed very happy until Maggie starts to get heavily involved with a television evangelist known as the Cowboy Prophet. Between a TV show and personal visits she becomes obssesed with his God-fearing ways. Hank soon realizes this marriage isn't going to work and tries leaving the house one night but is caught dead in his tracks, literally. Mom disposes of her first victim and soon what's left of her family begins to see a side of Mom that they had never seen before. Mom's rants turn to violence and soon death to all who stand in her way. Maggie tortures her two oldest daughters with beatings, prostitution and force-feeding, leaving the youngest to witness and help with her crimes. The family endures horrifying scare tactics all in the name of God. Too scared to run, who will be left to tell the story? Inspired by true events, the terrifying tale has its twist and turns through an emotional ride in this one house in small town America. The story told truely sticks to its name, The Afflicted.

Customer Reviews

The acting and directing was fair to good.
Ralph Kline
The "girls" are young women, yet they cannot escape from the mother who is blind drunk most of the time.
Joe Z
This movie stinks as a fictional story but is just insulting as a true one.

WOW!!! I don't think that I've watched a film that has such a high level of tension thru out, I'm actually exhausted! Knowing that this is based on the true story of Theresa Knorr is unsettling to say the least. The thought that this could actually happen in our society is pretty hard to swallow, but Theresa Knorr is in prison for two life sentences for what she did to her children and this film seems to show you what it must have been like to live in that house. I think a few words to describe this film are dark, intense, twisted and probably the best is disturbing. I think that this is the new age of horror, something that pulls you in and wears you out emotionally and physically. One thing is certain, this film will stay with you for a while. Definitely worth watching.

Yes, this is based on a true story but it doesn't follow it exactly. The ending is extremely different from what really happened and some characters in this movie don't even exist in the true story.

But this is still an amazing movie. It is brutal and stunning in the fact that people really do this.

I think I know the details of this case fairly well, from watching true crime shows on tv, so I know enough to say ALL the events in this movie don't happen the way they do in the true story. The details of the child abuse are true enough though... to the best of my knowledge.

This movie kind of sucked me in. I've seen "The Girl Next Door" and "An American Crime" and this film is definitely along those lines. The film isn't as tight and structured as it could have been but is effective none the less.

We're told the story through the journal of one of the abused children, the youngest one I believe. This approach to the narrative is standard enough until we sadly see her turn from an innocent witness of the abuse to an unwilling participant. That hurt! It tells about how one family is sucked into a sea of despair, pain and hopelessness as the matriarch slowly loses her mind. In between her binge drinking and spewing hate about her husband she finds time to distort the Bible's messages into a sadistic excuse to lay waste to her offspring in all ways possible. Her hypocrisy regarding her children is unimaginable. She prostitutes her oldest daughters out (to what has to be the most realistically portrayed pervert ever) and turns her only son into a sort of mindless enforcer all the while ranting that children should always obey their parents no matter what. She does such a good job in fact that she actually makes one daughter believe God is evil, her god at least. We learn the mother was also a victim of child sexual abuse herself, but this story almost makes me wish she killed herself and saved her family from the hell they would go through.

On another note, the Cowboy Prophet who seems to be in cahoots with mother is a very interesting character indeed.

The story of Theresa Cross is unspeakable. The tortures she inflicted so horrible it's hard to believe they really happened. This movie had so MUCH to work with and dropped the ball in every way possible. To do the true story any justice just read Mother Knows Best. This movie stinks as a fictional story but is just insulting as a true one.

Reviewed by Amanda Volovik "Chava": This is somewhat based on the case of Theresa Knorr and the outrageous sadistic abuse of her children in Sacramento, Ca in the eighties. The real story is worse than the movie. Some fellow reviewers mentioned this movie has bad acting...most crazy religious zealots (Mother and the Cowboy Prophet) act like bad actors in real life, so maybe it was good acting! The children's acting was solid. It is worth a watch, but if child abuse bothers you, or torture, I wouldn't watch it.

Bondage is more powerful in a psychological sense for children, and we wonder why they don't try harder to fight it. **(possible spoiler): The ones who do fight get the worst abuse, as we see here.

wow...where do i begin....i thought this movie was done very well - minus some so so acting - however the actress who played the mother was great......it is a disturbing portrayl of true events (they say ) - if u have any kind of a weak stomach when it comes to watching child abuse then u may have a hard time with this movie......from the beginning with the scene with the husband to the end it will keep u mesmerized in an sickening way......to think that this happened is extremely bothersome to me....its a very impactful movie...it will stay with u well after u watch it.......and it definitely does not give religion a good name & it doesnt do justice to preachers either.........this movie goes to show how deranged the abuse cycle can be & how happy endings are for hollywood............

Wow, Leslie Easterbrook did a great job in this movie. She is just a natural and playing over the top psycho type mother characters. This movie is very dark and disturbing. If you like a very dark torture style movie this is a must rent.

a disturbing film, because of the disfunction of the subject matter. The acting and directing was fair to good. I would probably say, I would have been better off not watching such a disturbing story of humans all in one family.
