The Hamiltons
Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores (aka the Butcher Brothers) break big on the horror scene with this low-budget frightener concerning a picture-perfect suburban family who harbors a particularly dark secret. When their parents are killed in a tragic accident, eldest Hamilton sibling David (Samuel Child) relocates the surviving family members to a quiet California suburb and assumes the responsibility of caring for his orphaned siblings Wendell (Joseph McKelheer), Darlene (Mackenzie Firgens), and Francis (Cory Knauf). While twins Wendell and Darlene seem to share a bizarre bond that separates them from the rest of the siblings, Francis acquires a video camera that previously belonged to his deceased parents and sets out preparing a school project about his family. As the all-seeing lens of Francis' roving camera begins to reveal that something malevolent is going on inside the Hamilton's picturesque abode and his reluctant siblings find their decidedly unconventional existence suddenly threatened, the youngest sibling is forced to choose between following his family into a murderous tradition or sparing the lives of future victims by betraying the only people who ever seemed to care for him. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Not predictable at all


    It was different, that's for sure. If you've come looking for a straight-on horror movie, you're better off looking somewhere else. This movie is more horror only in its tone and the occasional "hard-to-watch" scene. These aren't common in this movie, however, and the ending is very good to those who understand the things Francis says. "We're different...born not made. It's different than in the movies." While ironic that it's a movie itself, what he's talking about is often stereotyped badly. Here they are shown for what they are in real life: normal people on the outside and nothing beyond that. Again, if you're looking for a real horror movie, go look elsewhere. This is a horror movie only for those with open minds.

    Great horror movie!


    The movie was actually a lot better than my wife and I thought. We have the whole set and held off on this one because we didn't think it would be that great. We were wrong! This movie has a great twist at the end that's a shocker. I'm not going to spoil it, but I will say, it's a different take on the subject. You just need to see this for yourself. Buy it!
