Editorial Reviews

Backwoods scum Mike Gillis once had twin daughters. Stolen from their murdered mother, they spent most of their lives locked in his basement, until a fire set them free. Years later, Stacy Walker heads for the same remote mountains to escape her abusive boyfriend. Despite temporary relief from her tormentor, Stacy is overcome with the sound of little girls' voices...and soon the hallucinations become a violent reality.

I purchased this movie based on the reviews posted and after watching it I realized the reviews here are FAKE. This movie is absolutely horrible. The audio was horrible the make only used one microphone which was probably broken, so when music plays you can hear the difference between dialogue and music quality. I feel like I can't even give away this movie because it was so boring.

The film starts out simply and develops levels of complexity to propel it beyond your typical feral child slasher film. Mike Gillis (Tom Sizemore) kills a prostitute (Hanna Hall) and goes "Raising Arizona" with her twin daughters. His wife (Carol Abney) loves the children, but they have to be kept locked in the basement(is their home a trailer?) There is also an element of cannibalism that is alluded to as part of their diet. A fire destroys the home, and the area has a reputation of being haunted.

Years later Stacy (Jillian Murray) comes to this area as a retreat from her abusive boyfriend Brad (Jonas Fisch). Unfortunately she mentioned where she was to her drama queen shallow girlfriend Kelly (Deja Kreutzberg). Soon she has company which include Kelly's boyfriend Chris (Timothy Ryan Cole) who supplies us with the voice of reason.

Most horror slashers would stop at this point, but this film develops another character, retired Detective Black (Dave Parke) who is working on the cold case of the disappearance of the prostitute and her daughters. Her sister (Diana Costa) is still alive and wants closure. Also in the woods are two herbalists who use the story to scare people away from the area and their crop.

While there is an abuse theme, the viewer is not overly exposed to it. We briefly see bruises, and Stacy getting pushed to the ground. This aspect was under developed so time could be spent to create complexity. The production is not without plot continuity issues, but then again most horror film have them.

The film interjects light elements from time to time. The acting wasn't bad, but at the same time it doesn't make you take notice. While the film exceeds expectations of a dull "B" slasher, it won't be a classic horror film either. The gore factor is slightly less than a classic slasher,

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No nudity. Couple getting dressed after sex. Soft 4 stars.

I made myself go through the whole dreadful movie praying for an ending that made sense of all the different directions in the writing. Acting was just plain bad - except the boyfriend of the blonde. He was funny and actually did a good job with a bit role. I still don't know what happened at the end...it didn't really end as much as petered out. I never understood how the main character was applied to the twins and where was the back story for her? Schizo movie because you couldn't tell what direction it wanted to take or why it chose the directions it did go ...however briefly. End of the day, the movie makes the audience have to fill in the blanks and connect the dots of which some were simply missing. Until this movie, I didn't even know fake reviews existed. Now, I know.

It's easy to see this film as something flawed, because it just tries to do too many things, right? It starts with a very well made drama about a man who abducts two infant twin girls for his wife--who desperately wants kids--to care for. The children are locked in the basement, and he later kills the wife and feeds her to the girls. Then it all of a sudden jumps to a girl who confusingly looks like she might be one of the twins all grown up, but she isn't, she's a girl who's retreating to the California boondocks woods to contemplate her legacy of abuse at the hands of father and now boyfriend. What follows is a weird hybrid of horror, police procedural, buddy travel comedy, criticism of the media, manifesto against abuse, portrait of rural California life...and there's even more that doesn't really fit in. But I make sense of this rambling, loosely cobbled together construction by thinking of it as a West coast version of Dante Tomaselli's Torture Chamber. Set in the glorious California sunshine, it's an attempt to push a lot of our cinematic buttons all at once. I might give it only three stars if it weren't for the fact that the many, many sideline characters are all extremely well delineated and well acted (as they would be in a Tomaselli film). I've watched this twice now and the second viewing did not disappoint. If you insist on perfection, skip this, but if you like the art--that is, the failed attempt to go beyond simple good composition--of horror, I would recommend this strange, shambling mass of good, partially realized ideas.

Got this for my husband who absolutely loves horror (it's not my favorite genre). I actually enjoyed this movie with him, big surprise! It's definitely a low budget movie, so you have to accept that it's not perfect (a few sound issues here and there). But the story is great, not what I expected, and I so did not predict the ending! It's creepy, and enough blood and gore to keep the horror fans interested. Also, the look of it is pretty amazing.
