Full of the typical "why didn't they do this?", and "I would have done that's!". BUT, all in all it was rather well done, and definitely rarely a dull moment. Rebecca De Mornay does creepy pretty well. I have to say..the ending was not expected, and well thought out. This, to me,...

Has an interesting and entertaining premise for a horror/thriller, but it gets a little drowned out in the excessive violence and plot twists that make it impossible to sympathize with any character by the end of the film. I enjoyed it immensely, but it left a sour taste in my mo...

"How befitting that Rebecca De Mornay was selected to play the very disturbed "Mother". She plays these psychotic roles so good it's frightening. Now for the rest of the film, it is quite twisted. The devotion these four kids have for their Mother is on the lines of sick. There i...

The Hand That Messed Up Many Cradles!
Very good horror thriller! This movie's plot is a bit like Funny Games and the suspense models after The Strangers, but it does its thing originally. If you go in expecting a lot, that's what you will come out with. If you go in expecting no...

Another RINO (Remake In Name Only) but what makes it a rarity is that in it's own right is a damn fine film. There's some carryovers from the original but this truly stands on its own merits. Lots of drama, lots of violence, some surprising twists and some great performances from...

Could have been a lot better if their characters aren't stupid. The great fresh slasher techniques are there. It's smart, it's sick, yet it's hard to feel empathy for the protagonists if you know they deserve it.

Sporadically interesting but ultimately deadening, shrill, misogynistic, overlong and unnecessarily sadistic, Mother's Day has a couple of interesting things going for it - namely Rebecca De Mornay's eye-rolling performance and some early promise in the initial setup. In t...

Brutal home invasion horror. When three brother's burst into what they think is their home after running from a bank robbery they just committed they don't realise that they actually lost the house a few months ago and a new family are living there, in the house at that moment, a...
