Disappointing in the End
This movie started off with a lot of promise, which continued right up until the end. Was what the mother was experiencing real, or part of a mental illness? Was there a secret she was hiding all along? Was there an evil entity involved?
But then, in the last 10 minutes or so, it completely fell apart. Totally. The worst ending of any movie I've ever seen. And that's saying a lot, because a lot of psychological/horror/thrillers have disappointing endings.
I know made-for-TV movies have limited budgets and time to film, but still, the writer had no idea how to coherently end this movie. No director or producer helped create one, either. It just ended without resolving any of the questions I raised above. It tried to, sort of, with the very ending, but it made no sense. That was just tacked on to give the illusion of a conclusion.
Such a letdown. More so because of the intriguing main part of the film. When it was over, I felt I had wasted my time watching it.
