This was realy good.
This is one of those movies that surprises you by being everything you didn't expect it to be. I was looking for a horror movie, and instead was treated to a touching and thoughtful little indie flick. It was part comedy, part drama, and all heart. Plus, Laura Prepon and Ashley Laurence were both wonderful in it.
While not a "horror movie" in the classical sense this film still was a good movie.
This cannot be categorized as a horror movie. It is one of the best movies I've ever seen. The acting is excellent and the story is haunting. Many of us can identify with the struggles of small town life, but this movie is about more than that. It is about lies, manipulation, courage, love, truth, and triumph over tragedy. It is very dark in some ways yet there are grains of humor here and there that can catch you unexpectedly. It is extremely well written and well directed and the actors absolutely knocked it out of the park. I highly recommend this movie.
