excellent in every way
Happy Father's Day to all horror daddies everywhere.
An entertaining enough film about a psycho family man who just wants a family, but if the family doesn't rise to his ideal of what a family should be, he kills them all. Terry O'Quinn plays the father, and he is outstanding. He turns hot then cold then hot on a dime: the ease he moves from nice guy to homicidal guy is impressive. The primary flaw of this flick is the supporting characters. They're paper-thin and uninteresting. The violence and gore is rather tepid for my taste, but the stepfather's brutality is effective.
Much better than I'd expected, still felt like it dragged in parts and for a movie less than 90 minutes long is not a great quality.
