I'd be lying if I said that I didn't love this concept. I'd also be lying if I said that I didn't enjoy the first 2/3s of this film. But the last act completely falls apart with resolution that is equally frustrating as it is unwhelming.
Hoop-Tober Film #11
Randy Quaid frightens me in general. Cast him as a cannibalistic dad.... I am shook. From the visuals, direction, soundtrack, and story, this has cult film written all over it. Not perfect but definitely a nice surprise that I can see getting better after multiple viewings.
Hoop-Tober: Film #7
In 1960, two British directors released films about a socially awkward introvert, obsessed with a parent who spends his off-time from work killing women. One was called Psycho, the other was called Peeping Tom. Psycho would go on to be considered one of the greatest films of all-time, commenting the legacy of the director, Alfred Hitchcock. The latter would ruin director, Mitchell Powers' career. Funny how things work in the movie industry. While Peeping Tom is well-acted and beautifully shot, the film never matches the level of pure suspense of its film rival.
