| Not quite twisting enough
Lucy Griffiths (True Blood) stars as Nora, a (seemingly too) young accomplished children's / young adults author who, on the death of her grandmother, inherits the remote family house she grew up in as a troubled child. It is, she thinks, the ideal place to work in solitude on her new book. The combination of a vivacious female lodger, Peyton (played by Cassidy Freeman), and memories stirred by meeting the people she left behind lead to a settling of scores. The good - cinematography, acting (both of the female leads spark off of each other nicely and Cassidy really crackles in some scenes). The bad - you'll probably see the end coming a fair way off and, once you've seen it, the rest is just watching the story play itself out by the numbers. There's some soft core sex (but no nudity) and the violence is virtually blood free. Whether you want to slot that under good or bad I'll leave to you. I'd say it was to the Director's (William Dickerson) credit that he didn't try to boost the film by gratuitous amounts of either. Conclusion - well worth a watch but not quite twisting enough to keep you guessing till the end. 7/10
