Overview

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.

    Interesting storyline

    I liked this movie for mostly the same reason as the last reviewer. The story kept you watching. It was more strange and disturbing then anything, but enjoyable for sure.

    Disturbing, and yet...interesting...

    The Hamiltons...an interesting film. It wasn't so much scary as it was shocking. The actors did a pretty good job and a very important piece of information is held from the audience until the very end- and this is what makes the movie worth seeing.
