Beneath the 1950's seemingly placid exterior of Ozzie and Harriet normalcy, there were -- brace yourself! -- sinister undercurrents at work.
There's little reason to see the movie. Unless, of course, you get off on watching the sexual exploitation of underage girls.
The kind of movie that makes you wish you could rinse your brain in bleach, to wash all traces of it from your memory.
It's a dark, harsh, and sometimes powerfully unpleasant film, but it's also very well made.
If you are easily disturbed, you should not watch this movie.
Words simply don't do it justice; it's a masterpiece, and I'll never be able to see it again...
A super-realistic horror flick that's so relentlessly-disturbing it's likely to trigger debate as to whether the filmmaker might have left too little to the imagination.
Based on Jack Ketchum's deeply disturbing novel, Gregory Wilson's film explores the dark bond between an embittered housewife and a group of apparently ordinary suburban teenagers that leads to torture and murder.
To say the film is disconcerting is an understatement.
Like some demented cross between a Norman Rockwell painting and an Eli Roth film.
L'expérience que nous propose Wilson se veut si intense et le malaise qui s'en suit si profond qu'il serait surprenant que plusieurs désirent la vivre une seconde fois
The film is stuck with an utterly quotidian screenplay that never truly provokes the viewer.
The strange thing about this film is that the acting (particularly from the main character) didn't start off great, but it does improve through the film. It's shocking that this was a true story and actions that took place are truly disturbing.
I watched this movie after I saw it on a list of the most disturbing movies ever made and although it was definatly not Disney I think my expecations were built higher than the film actually delivered. Still it was worth the watch and a good movie to have on DVD to scare your slightly harder to bore friends on movie night.
its really sad that this movie is based on a true story but this movie jus irritated me! the portrayal of characters werejust annoying and i felt more frustrated then any other emotion! this movie failed ithink to capture the emotion that this actual story deserves!
Starts off innocently like a nice time warp back to the 50's but after awhile it turn nasty. A great movie with a hard to watch story line and wont be to everyone's taste.The direction is good and it could of been more graphic but it was't and some things left to your own mind......which can be worst.The Two leads are fantastic and watch able,
There is another movie dealing with the same story called American crime which deals with the true life story that this was based on and is worth checking out too.
But this one is so worth your time and effort so check out this one first.;
