"5150 Elm's Way" is a great movie, well acted and superbly directed and written.

Trying to understand the extent of this families mental illness, is like trying to unravel the mysteries of the human brain. What is apparent however, is that this family is far from normal, and whilst each member has their own reality, it is the father that has the most pronounced removal from reality. Convinced that he is a righteous man, and that one of his responsibilities is to rid the world of evil, makes for a disturbing premise. What one cannot imagine however, is the extent of his 'madness'.

Then along comes an innocent man, and all starts to unravel. The challenge for him however, is to escape the prevailing madness of the family that imprisons him, or to decent into that madness himself.

Extremely well written, this movie makes for a pronounced exploration of of the logic behind one man's insanity. The setting is disturbing in its naivety, and this in turn makes for a prevailing illusion of normality. Albeit with a underlying anxiety that all is not as it seems. Marcc-Andre Grondin (as Yannick) is as brilliant as ever. I loved him in "C.R.A.Z.Y" and was not disappointed by his performance in this psychological horror. Equally unsettling in her performance of the disturbed and violent daughter was Mylene St-Sauveur. Her cold brutality makes for a horrendous display of inhumanity, and her underlying intent to inherit her father's legacy seems to haunt the entire setting.

Unusual in its story, and ending. Wow

This film was better than expected. At the beginning of the story I thought it was going to be just another excuse for the over the top blood and gore usage but the story actually improves during the film drawing the viewer into the story. One reviewer likened it to'Mum & Dad' which I disagree with. This is a much more intelligent story and more believable scenario about how certain individuals allow themselves to be taken over by strong doctrines of religion or politics.

Yannick has just been accepted into film school, so he's leaving his parents and girlfriend behind to go on his two year course. He's happy to be leaving as his father is an overbearing idiot, and his mother is an alcoholic who has recently started drinking again. While Yannick is riding his bike, he has to break hard when a cat runs out in front of him. He goes sailing over the handlebars and crashes to the ground, he's pretty banged up and his bike's in even worse shape. As he gets up, he spots a man at the side of his house, so he asks if he can use his phone to call a cab. The man says that he'll go inside and phone the cab for him, Yannick then inspects his wounds and discovers that he's bleeding quite badly. He calls the man but gets no response, so he goes inside the house and washes his wounds in the sink. Once he's finished cleaning his wounds, he hears banging and what sounds like a man shouting for help. Yannick goes upstairs to discover a man lying on the floor bleading profusely, he leaves the room shaken and frightened just as the man is walking up the stairs. He tries to leave but is thrown into a child's room and the door is locked, the man soon returns with a shotgun and leads Yannick to a room with boarded up windows and nothing but blood stains on the floor. The man is soon revealed to be Jacques Beaulieu, who along with his overweight wife Maude, teenage daughter Michelle and his youngest daughter Anne who has special needs, keep him locked up to prevent him going to the police. It turns out that Jacques believes he is doing God's work, and for years he has been killing people who are unrighteous. Jacques has been grooming Michelle to take over his work, but when she is unable to go through with it and kill a pervert, Jacques' attention turns to Yannick.Read more ›

Great film along the same lines as the british "Mum And Dad" so if you liked that definitely check this out as this is better (though alot less gory and more drama than horror). It's perhaps more similiar to the equally excellent "Frailty" in that it stars a character who strongly believes they are doing god's work by hunting out and destroying evil. I was expecting a really obvious big twist ending that I thought would be coming from near the start but was glad when it didn't. The ending and revelation will probably stay with you for some time but it is brilliantly twisted. This isn't a horror film but it is a really great psychological thriller with an excellent cast and a great script. Watch it.

I'm a fan of French movies as they're often pretty good (those of you who refuse to watch a movie because it's subtitled really do miss out and subtitles are nowhere near as distracting as you might think).
This was nothing like I was expecting - I was expecting the steretypical gory slashfest with no real storyline but this has a proper plot that keeps you guessing for quite a while and the story pans out quite nicely.
The ending is quite an open one which leaves the way for an additional movie on a few tangents but in a good way.
