This thriller/drama movie is about a hidden family who follows very strange and old customs, until the matriarch of the family suddenly dies and the two daughters are now dealing with the consequences. The movie definitely did have some kind of creepy vibe over it that will make you feel uncomfortable. It is one of those lesser known movies because there were limited effects and everything heavily relied on the abilities of the actors. I would rate this movie 3/5 stars for it’s naturally creepy appearance, and would recommend it to those who like being uncomfortable and somewhat afraid. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

absolute garbage...nothing new here, and NOT very gory if you are into that...quite tame. You can see the ending coming a mile away as it trods slowly to get there. If you dont fall asleep dont be surprised by the sound of your own voice going....aww jeeze, really???..

Creepy Gothic/ Cannibal film

not sure what Im missing here from other comments but this was nothing more than an ok timewaster. Far inferior to many. Big surprise ending that can be guessed less than half way through and most definitely on the light side when it comes to any gore ( if thats what u want). totally disappointing.

Doesn't rank up there with Cannibal Holocaust but this movie does have its own creep factor. If you have a weak stomach, don't watch alone.

Unnecessary gore!

I found the ending somewhat predictable, and the suspense was not what I expected.

The plot was interesting, but after the first half of the movie, once the reveal took place, it became somewhat boring.

Darkest of the horrid secret of a family living in a small town ... A doctor noticed signs of the disease of Kuru during an autopsy.

WOW! This was an interesting movie. After reading a review about it on a horror web site, i decided to call my friend and watch this on my HOMETHEATER! I didn't want to tell my friend about this film and just decided to let the movie speak for itself. The first half hour or so, my friend began asking me what the heck is this movie about? This creepy movie does start off slow, and you can be fooled by what it about. It slowly builds until you realize, "Oh, that's what it's about." WOW! We were both blown away by the ending, and i have the fingernails prints in my arm to prove it. My friend inhaled and let out a yell that nearly left me deaf in my left ear. This is after she buried her face deep on my shoulder. Holy S@%t! What the F*%K!! I can't watch this!!!! Was said several times. This is some movie. As far as sound is concerned, i would call it "all around sound" which was good. Based on my friend's reaction i'm giving this movie 4 and a half stars. A good story that takes it time, good acting, and an ending that caught my friend by surprise. Pork chops smothered with thinly sliced onions, green peppers, white rice covered with gravy and a tall glass of tea.

I absolutely love this movie. It is paced slowly which i prefer my psychological horror to be. So if you are looking for gore and special effects, fast paced with a lot of teen sex and boobage, this is not the movie for you. I thought it was beautifully filmed and the soundtrack was amazing.
