Trivia

Joel Gretsch had to be persuaded into taking his shirt off in the sex scene as he felt that his body wasn't in good enough shape. (As can be seen by his excellent physique in the final edit, Gretsch needn't have worried.) See more »

Goofs

When Abby is sitting on the stairs after the nighttime needle thing Eve tells her that she's been asleep for three days. Abby immediately freaks out silently and looks down at the area where the needle was injected - on the right arm, the needle (both times) was injected on the left. See more »

Mommie Dearest..... in a House full of Secrets
10 December 2008 | by rbrbSee all my reviews

High class intense melodrama which had my attention.

Mother loses child and adopts two as replacement; yet the mother and her husband have dark secrets in a house full of them. And on one level this film goes further than child endangerment but into child cruelty and worse.

Excellent photography, generally very good direction with a few blimps near the end.

Super performances from the two female leads which makes the film.

The actress playing the mother is sensationally "bad".

Worthy of a sound: 7/10.
