Audience Reviews for Homebodies

  • Sep 11, 2009
    Ever wonder what kinds of quaint buildings, neighborhoods and people those sterile, downtown concrete and steel condos displaced? When ruthless developers evict senior citizens from their ancient and honorable tenement, the residents collaborate to form their own historic preservation society. Their idea of neighborhood improvement entails getting rid of such adversaries as a cold-hearted real estate magnate and his arrogant cronies, and the bodies start to pile up. Independent "contracting" of this sort is a tricky business however. By and by matters get ouf of hand and the group finds themselves in over their heads. Sad, funny, poignant and bloody, Homebodies is a jet black comedy, but it's credible and never campy. Cinephiles will recognize classic film era veterans Peter Brocco, Paula Turman, Ian Wolfe, Frances Fuller, Ruth McDevitt, and William Hansen. Good characterizations, effective performances, and a gem of a script that doesn't patronize make this hard to find, forgotten sleeper a macabre delight.
