A stranger with mysterious intentions comes to stay the night at a secluded
country home, but what he finds inside is a family torn apart by a violent past
and a secret more deadly than he expected.
This film felt like a stage play with the feel of The Others. Talk about a
slow burn. This film is not bad, but it is so slow. The whole film is like a
mystery, that when it unfolds, it is not as much shocking as it is just a
happyÂ feeling that finallyÂ you understand what is going on and being hinted at
in the first twenty minutes of the film. This film in the first half hour is so
weird, itÂ just has so many questions. What is the deal with this family, and why
do they call their daughter ” black bird” and get her attention but her real
name she ignores. And what secrets are they hiding. But do not worry when the
family welcomes into the fold a mysterious stranger who broke down up the road,
there is just more and more questions. I think it would have been a much better
film to get us some backstory info in the beginning, and let us know some of
the past. But, this film was just so well acted and when it did give us some
blood and gore, ( which was mild) it worked. The ending to me was fun, and
worked very well and answered all the questions. This film is not for the
impatient gore hounds, it is a family drama, with some chilling scenes and aÂ ok
amount of killing.
As a whole, this was not too bad. Would I watch it again, sure now I know
everything about the backstory and characters. It would make more sense to re
watch it and I would probably rate it higher.
