The plot focuses mainly on the Parker family, who live in a rural American town. After Mrs Parker passes away early on in the piece, we're left with the domineering father, Frank, with his two daughters and young son. There's something not quite right about this family though relating to Franks insistence on following some strange rituals. More is revealed about this as we go, prompted by a storm and flood and some curious locals.
I won't say anymore about the plot, I think it's better to go in fresh if you don't already know too much. What follows is a creepy, atmospheric, slow burning chiller - it's not fast paced and is not built on action set pieces but can bring a little carnage when required. The acting is of a good standard all round, especially surprisingly excellent turns from some of the younger cast members.
Recommended from me but perhaps don't watch it around mealtimes.
It’s about a family in a small American town who, after the mother of the family dies suddenly, start to have to face up to life without her. This would be hard enough, but this family are also cannibals who believe in eating humans as part of their religion.
It’s a horror movie. However, in Hollywood it seems that there are only really two types of horror films these days – zombie outbreaks and Japanese-inspired ghosts who terrorise single parents. Perhaps I’ve got a bit too used to those two variations of the genre and couldn’t really appreciate this one. It doesn’t conform to many of today’s horror films. It’s well-shot, subtly acted and oozes brooding menace. These are all plus points for the film, but the only thing that struck me was how slow it was. After about half an hour I was praying for someone to impale someone else on a chainsaw. By an hour I was struggling to recall a single pertinent event at all!
Kelly McGillis deserves a special mention as the local doctor who figures that there’s more going on in this town than he can put his finger on, but, despite his excellent performance, it still doesn’t move things on as fast as I was hoping it would.
I hope I haven’t become completely immune to subtle horror, as, deep down, I know this film was actually quite good. I just wanted it to speed up a little bit more. You really have to be in the mood for something slow to sit down and watch this.

There was so much build up and tension in this movie. The storyline was just brilliant. I was wondering whether the build up was going to be let down by the ending. ... Read morePublished 4 days ago by Andy
Absolutely brilliant build of tension, really skilful story telling and beautifully shot and acted . Loved it all until the very end - which felt like a generic cop out.Published 9 days ago by Amazon Customer
Absolutely dull, with no tension or atmosphere. Characters are uninteresting that I didn't care about what deep dark secrets they hid. Just so boring.Published 17 days ago by Nurrie
Personally, I think it's a good idea to watch this film without knowing the details of the plot, so with that said, I liked it! The concept is unique, dark and creepy! Read morePublished 1 month ago by Dan
