This deeply disturbing psychological thriller, released in April of 2012, stars seasoned actress Leslie Easterbrook (Police Academy, The Devil's Rejects) with a minor role by horror icon Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th Series). Actor/musician J.D. Hart plays a supporting role as the “Cowboy Profit” and also lends his strings and vocals to the movie's effectively depressing soundtrack.
No one is safe from mother Maggie's wrath as she inflicts a world of physical and emotional suffering upon her family, fueled by her alcoholism and religious nutjobbery. The film is loosely based on the true story of Theresa Knorr.
“I have gotten nothing but pure disgust from watching this film,” proclaims the title of one user review on IMDb, as a sort of testament to how effective this film is in creating an atmosphere and telling a truly disturbing story that repulses the unsuspecting viewer.
