User Reviews

This is shocking and amusing in a roller-coaster manner
21 May 2012 | by richardstevensse5See all my reviews

Soooo shocking and at the same time with amusing excerpts. Enjoyable nonetheless. With some suspense loaded into it that keeps you gripped for most of the time. The actors carry the plot-line really well even if there is a little overacting in some places. My only niggle was that it left little to the imagination. However I particularly enjoyed the manic look of "Dad", who relentlessly pursued his revenge on his family, who he perceived to be individually immoral in their own behaviours or nature. Some familiar themes here of every day life that allow us to all identify with, such as adultery, sexuality and of course murder. The death penalty should definitely be brought back for dad, after his slashing antics.
