Directed by Douglas Buck
In this clever update of Brian De Palma's '70s thriller, a reporter investigates a brutal murder that leads her to a pair of twisted twins. Indie icon Chloe Sevigny (AMERICAN HORROR STORY) stars as the reporter while Stephen Rea (THE BUTCHER BOY) is the twins' controlling doctor. Though most would think of a De Palma film as being an untouchable source for a remake, director Douglas Buck (best known for the disturbing cult horror film FAMILY PORTRAITS: A TRILOGY OF AMERICA) takes the tale and makes it his own in skillfull and scary fashion. Contains sexual scenes, violence and gore.

Really? No Love? Douglas Buck is a true talent and needs to Make another feature. Great add to the library shudder.
not a bad flick. I don't get how the ending was hard to understand by some, but well worth your time watching.
This was a bit of a confusing story to tell. I did enjoy it at some level but I also had to replay the last act to get a clearer understanding. Ultimately I get what happened in the end but there were so many moving storylines that went nowhere. It was like juggling many stories to try to force you to get it. It's also pretty slow for the first half and then it amps up out of nowhere telling many confusing tales and introducing new characters.
It's hard not to compare this to Brian De Palmas excellent film/ I did try not to through. So in the end I felt the first 2 acts were vert weak. Act 3 was pretty effective. Not too bad if you have the time or are just curious to see a re-make of "Sisters".
