      Sheri Linden Los Angeles Times There's nothing to be found in the forced, lifeless drama that unfolds ... Mar 27, 2014 Full Review Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times A poorly acted grab bag of shopworn ideas and hyperbolic behaviors that not even Ryan Murphy could translate into entertainment. Mar 20, 2014 Full Review Sam Weisberg Village Voice This needlessly incoherent thriller treats its convoluted nonsense with grave seriousness.

      Audience Member Second rate film with second rate acting. Overall a dreadful boring film about as interesting as watching paint dry Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Dette må være den absolut dårligste film jeg NOGENSINDE har set. Skuespillerne er så ufattelig dårlige. Plottet er vanvittigt ringe, og handlingen er totalt forudsigelig. Man fatter ikke den høje rating på imdb. Det står nu helt klart, at det må være familiemedlemmer til instruktøren samt skuespillerne selv, der har skrevet de anmeldelser derinde. Det er det værste lort, der nogensinde er lavet. Spar jer selv for 2 timer i helvede med denne "film". Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is refreshing. We do not see enough female lead movies. This is a good touching film with many twists and surprises. There were no cheap grabs for attention with the F word everywhere and every minute as is the case with so many pictures today. This is a story and character driven film. My girlfriend and 8 year old daughter enjoyed this movie. We all got a lot out of it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a horrible, absolutely horrible, unbelievably horribly made movie. The characters are leaden, almost like they are reading their lines, John Savage needs to go to rehab before he makes another movie, Stephen Bauer comes across like a total sleazebag, Sally Kirkland is unrecognizable unless you saw her name in the opening credits and were watching for her, the main character acts in a comatose manner throughout most of the movie, and there as a totally pointless funeral for the town mayor about 3/4 of the way through the movie which has nothing to do with the tangled, muddled plot, plus we are not told how she died or even why, and she had no role in the movie while she was alive. She just shows up in a coffin at her funeral with no explanation of what this had to do with the rest of the movie. This movie lacks charm, excitement, pathos, logos, ethos, and any other meaningful expression of human drama that would make me want to recommend it to anyone. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member I was really moved by this film. A great experience. Very disturbing and dark and mysterious at times. Great cast, great performances, and Im defintely seeing it twice. A really great movie. Also great to see a movie like this with a female lead Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Really powerful movie. A film that takes its time with its themes and messages. Has a great even pace that just makes it really worth viewing. Suspenseful and scary at times, but really just a fun experience. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
