MOTHER'S GONE MAD,
This review is from: Cradle Will Fall [DVD] (DVD)
As this starts off,it's clear the mother is depressed and struggling to not completely lose it,probably post natal depression.
She also suspects her somewhat emotionless husband of cheating. The father has to go away on a job and tells his oldest son that he will be the man of the house for a while and must look after his siblings,little does the father realise that the son will soon be fighting for all their lives.
So the mother finally snaps and starts killing her children,leaving the scared soon desperate and determined to save his sister.
The acting is passable to impressive,the mother is impressively played,very disturbing. It's an interesting story based on truth and highlights a very real threat of mental illness. This is very short at 1 hour 14 minutes,with the end credits being several minutes of that.
Some repulsed reviewers of this clearly missed the point,i don't see how it's offensive or sick,it just points out how someone can just flip sometimes and the whole thing ends in bloody carnage. It is disturbing,but it does it's job and does it well.
