Movie Review by Movie Addict
December 19th, 2009

Favorite Movie Quote: "The past catches up to you, whether you like it or not. It can be a gift or a curse if you let it."

This film is based on a real-life murder case. Although I have seen this story before with Ellen Page, it was worth watching again. In fact, both this and the Page film An American Crime, came out the same year.

This film lets you in the door easy. It starts with children playing, and it progresses gradually. Next we see the mom (Blanche Baker) providing her sons with beer and cigarettes, while talking about hoochie-coochie dancers.

Mom raises the stakes while humiliating Meg (Blythe Auffarth) in front of her sons. Meg is in her Aunt's home because her parents died. It gets worse and worse.

After she goes to the police, she is tied up naked in the basement. One can only imagine what perversity awaits her.

The torture increases to levels that were difficult to watch. This is made more difficult when you realize that this is based upon a true story and real people were involved.
