Movie Info

Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores (aka the Butcher Brothers) break big on the horror scene with this low-budget frightener concerning a picture-perfect suburban family who harbors a particularly dark secret. When their parents are killed in a tragic accident, eldest Hamilton sibling David (Samuel Child) relocates the surviving family members to a quiet California suburb and assumes the responsibility of caring for his orphaned siblings Wendell (Joseph McKelheer), Darlene (Mackenzie Firgens), and Francis (Cory Knauf). While twins Wendell and Darlene seem to share a bizarre bond that separates them from the rest of the siblings, Francis acquires a video camera that previously belonged to his deceased parents and sets out preparing a school project about his family. As the all-seeing lens of Francis' roving camera begins to reveal that something malevolent is going on inside the Hamilton's picturesque abode and his reluctant siblings find their decidedly unconventional existence suddenly threatened, the youngest sibling is forced to choose between following his family into a murderous tradition or sparing the lives of future victims by betraying the only people who ever seemed to care for him.

Audience Reviews for The Hamiltons

    Different take on the genre. The "twist" is not only pretty straight forward, it's also straight up given away in the promotional material, and that twist is really the point of The Hamiltons. Even so, I was engaged, which is important. Acting could be better, same goes for the AV quality, but you get that with independant horror, and this I can handle.

    Hope there isn't a big twist at the end because I got bored halfway through and stopped watching. It's not scary, interesting, or involving.

    [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] I really liked the gore. After looking at what's displayed here i'm very confident in saying that the directors; The Butcher Brothers, clearly understand how to make beautiful, physical blood effects, and I think they have a real future within the horror film industry. However apart from that The Hamiltons is quite literally all over the place. It tries very hard to be a profound drama about the civilised family, and how without good management in the household everything can fall apart. But surprisingly the film does actually fall apart in the end. After a creepy and interesting set-up the rest of the film is uninteresting and dissapointingly dull. I will praise both the acting and the gore, but the script is weak and it's got it's ideas and morals all jumbled up. It has a very interesting premise that could have been moulded into a tremendously surreal and eerily disturbed drama. But in the end it doesn't work and it doesn't help whatsoever that not once was I scared by it, or even interested in it at all really.

    I almost turned this low budget slowness off... but I'm glad I didn't, it was a pleasent surprise.
