There are moments of true creepiness - like the dirty bathtub filled with the "chewed out" faces of Washington from dollar bills, the possibly in-bred siblings living in the basement of the Grace's house (whose unintelligible gibberish only adds to the creep factor), and just about any scene with Eugene in it (when he reached from offscreen to touch Steven's curly locks, I almost crawled out of my skin.) The actors have an authenticity to them which is good, and the movie does pick up the pace in the last 15 minutes. However, it's not more than a two-star film for me. I feel as if this movie had great potential, with so many chill-inducing elements, but no ability to link them together into a cohesive whole, let alone use them to build up in a bone-chilling crescendo for the finale. The writer should have deleted the "based on true events" and instead used his childhood memories as elements to give viewers a real thrills and chills story.

Bush invented "doughnut hole" which means I can't afford my $1,100 prescription, I'm paying over 570.00 for health insurance every month, our property was just re-assessed and it already had increased $500 BEFORE re-assessment, and we are both retired on fixed incomes. Yes, "golden Years" are anything but...thanks to the Republicans who are so money hungry, and some of the Democrats are no better. Why do we put up with this? Because the average IQ in the US is 97 and falling, so that the working class is too unintelligent to see that the Republicans just don't give a damn about them and just want to bleed them dry. Greedy American corporations have done away with unions by taking our factory jobs overseas where it is cheaper for the corporations and the US working class is left with the service industry--MacDonalds, Walmart, or serving tables at Olive Garden, while the corporation, AMA, health insurance companies hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies bleed us dry, then put us out on the street, still sick and penniless after they have taken all that people worked a lifetime for. I'm just about ready to move to Canada! Where I could get my $1,100 prescription for $5.00.
(ca) wrote: while comparable to Battle Royale in terms of basic premise, this movie holds its own thanks to its talented cast of unknowns, whose characters that manage to be crazy, sad and believable without resorting to raving or sobbing.it also benefits from toned down yet reasonably graphic violence and suspense, thanks in no part to its absorbing, faux-reality show style that makes the suspense as fun as any straightforward realist narrative.it uses these techniques to craft a fun, darkly comic and ultimately devastating look at our obsession with and desensitization to media violence and growing apathy towards the welfare of others for a few ratingsyou've probably never heard of this movie, but its definitely worth discovering. it matches BR on almost every level.

(ca) wrote: Unconvincing Hitchcockian conspiracy thriller. Derivative. Uninvolving.Most interesting thing is its Philadelphia setting - and its 70's pre-digital gadgetry. Travolta's slow motion sprint at end displays all that is wrong with the film - it's all fake and for effect only. SPOILER ALERT. Should we even remember that Sally was responsible for Manny's death (defending herself from rape)? I know the obedient media will probably report it as an "accident", but still it's a loose end I didn't like left hanging, especially in a thriller.
