Editorial Reviews

The Hamiltons seem to be the picture-perfect American family. They are hardworking community members; giving to their local charities, attending town hall meetings and always respectful of their neighbors...except for the fact that they usually end up killing them.

4.0 out of 5 stars might be the best of the set February 11, 2008
this movie opens and runs for quite some time seeming fairly standard. you see people being captured and chained up in the shed. throughout the movie you get to know the family as well as why they live the way that they do.

three brothers and a sister live together after their parents deaths. the oldest(mid 20's) is the most mature and resposible of the bunch. the twin brother and sister (early 20's) are the impulsive ones, and nearly out of control. the youngest brother is the docile one, constantly second guessing thier actions. he is the center of the film. a lot of time is spend focusing on his life and how he handles everything he's been partly responsible for.

pretty low bugdet stuff here. though not much lower than any others from the Horrorfest series. it really doesnt take away from the movie though. i didnt find it "scary" at all, and there isnt much blood and there's really no gore to speak of, but i found the overall experience very rewarding when all was done.

it seems to bog down at times, and it could have moved along a little quicker and had more effects, but there's a great feeling of realization as it all winds down. i walked away from this one very satisfied.

VERY cool ending. i didnt see it comming.

4.0 out of 5 stars finally... June 30, 2007
I have written reviews for almost every After Dark Horror Fest release so far (to be honest, this is #6), and this is my highest rating so far. Before I tell you what I like about this one, let me tell you what I wasn't liking about the others:

I have great hope in horror movies, because it seems that this genre might be one of the most visceral mainstays of creativity in the movie business nowadays. The essence of that creativity is its accessibility--it seems that just about anyone can make a horror movie (and does). They are famously low budget, and many big names have made their starts in horror movies--two of the most famous now would be Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson. And horror movies don't have to be high-grossing to be famous--just go on eBay and find tons of stuff relating to 'cult' movies, movies that maybe only ever saw the light of day in local theatres or on video, but spread by word of mouth (and, let's face it, drunken parties) over years until they became famous. Also, I think horror movies are wonderful for being able to reinvent themselves--horror movie makers are for the most part very well versed in horror, so while some may make run-of-the-mill horror, there are those who make horror movies that acknowledge the long history before them and stack themselves on top of that tradition either by playing with the form (as in Shaun of the Dead) or bring it down to its most visceral roots of splatter, gore and fun (as in The Evil Dead).

5.0 out of 5 stars THE HAMILTONS: Fun with the Horror Genre February 26, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
THE HAMILTONS is a horror film directed by filmmakers who want to play with our perception of what a horror film is.

Sure, the filmmakers dress the walls of their basement cage with big wet splatters of blood, and bind their victims with tape and chain...but at the end of the day The Butcher Brothers care more about exploring the relationships between our family of orphan killers than the plight of the victims held down below. This is not a movie where some dumb teenagers go some out of the way place, do something "wrong" and then get hunted by crazed maniacs.

It is a movie about a good looking family that moves into your town--hardworking and on hardluck that just happen to have your daughter chained up in their basement. It is this reason that THE HAMILTONS was one of the most recognized indie horror films of 2006 and most certainly one of, if not the best, of the AfterDark Horror Fest: 8 Films to Die For.

Featuring charming and often times hilarious performances by a talented cast the movie is a smart, fun, critique of American family values, what consitutes a family, and the dangers of letting adolescence blossom outside of a well constructed and tightly chained box.

A real treat.

3.0 out of 5 stars ALL IN THE FAMILY April 6, 2007
This indie horror, part of Lions Gate's horror fest, is one of the strangest horror films to come down the road in some time. It is to be applauded for its unusual approach to a genre favorite--but I can't say which one without spoiling its ending.

At any rate, THE HAMILTONS are a family of three brothers and one sister trying to adjust to the deaths of their parents. David, the oldest, is trying to be the head of the family; the twins Darlene and Wendell are the rebellious type; and youngest brother Francis is the quiet, morose one, obsessed with his video camera. And oh yes, they kidnap and torture several victims, which forms the core of the movie: why are they doing this?

Despite its low budget, the film is an original one but it is also manipulative, confusing and only moderately well acted. But the horror fest is an interesting collection of horror movies that overall are quite entertaining. This is just not one of the best of the lot.

Not bad at all. I was very skeptical. If you don't watch it all the way through though and you're not really into slashers (like I am not) I can see easily falling off the train... Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars not mind blowing but I've seen worse.
Most of the acting wasn't great, but the premise was an interesting idea. I've seen worse plots in theaters. The twins were sort of gross...

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever movie
Very good movie if you are into horror. As with the rest of the After Dark films, you have to give them some leeway and imagination because of their low budget.
