6 June 2000 | bigpappa1--2
| An over looked film.
An over protective aunt eventually goes crazy and murders off anybody that tries to bring harm to her teenage nephew, whom she has incestious desires toward. The plot is nothing new or very original, but this horror film is well made (by any movie standard) and very well acted by all involved. The standout in the cast though, is Susan Tyrell as the crazed aunt. Susan gives what is the performance of her career.

A very over looked film, but this is very good and worth seeking out. Ignore the bad tape box though. MY RATING: 8 out of 10.
