In this atmospheric, nerve-straining chiller, two young twins confined to an isolated country house transform their resentment towards their mother into a fatal illusion about her identity. In the heat of the summer, a lonesome house in the countryside between woods and corn fields. Nine-year-old twin brothers are waiting for their mother. When she comes home, bandaged after cosmetic surgery, nothing is like before. The children start to doubt that this woman is actually their mother.

This movie made me feel like a sports fan who can't bear to watch when with one play, you win it all or lose it all. I really couldn't stand it if my next film were like this one.

Very well done, especially the twins. Its slow but worth watching.

Super-creepy film - I won't bother with any plot details - it's all there in the description above. Suffice to say that there is an insane amount of tension by the time we get to the film's climax. Beautiful camera work throughout, and a subtly-impressive sound design. Recommended for fans of psychological horror.

Warning: long torture scene and very disturbing movie. More creepy and disgusting than scary.

Chilling children are the cornerstone of this creepy horror/thriller. Twin-language has never been so unnerving. Wicked twists and turns.A woman directed this film about motherhood; one definitely worth checking out if you are a fan of tension filled horror.

OMG, what a creepy-ass twisty freaky horror film! Shades and echoes of classics like"Turn of the Screw";"Children of the Corn/Damned" etc. infect the mind as you try and figure out what is really the deal with these two and "mummy". The Schwarz twins are perfectly cast here. Stunning!

Very creepy film. Check this version out before Hollywood decides to remake it.
