A viable twisted character study of a violently disturbed kid.

Audience Reviews for Twisted


This could have been a great movie, but it tries too hard and adds useless information to the story. Overall, the plot is really good, and it's interesting to see one of Slater's first movies.

I really loved seeing Christian Slater when he was so young, but this is still a strange movie. Christian's character has a twisted mind, but I wouldn't say it's a step beyond insanity, he's just a misunderstood kid who's parents don't pay any attention to what he does so he gets away with murder, literally. I really thought it was an interesting idea to have a crazy kid trying to drive the babysitter crazy, and then him finding out something's crazy about her too! I liked the ending, but this movie is slow and distant, plus there are other things going on in the story that didn't really help with understanding the movie.
