At first I thought the girl was horny. Jeez, but she didn't have to risk her future for this boy who has no future.

Movie wasnt bad, interesting reading the opinions after I watched it, yeah, the ending makes you think, but its not the ending that made the film. Easy to watch, though at times it did drag for me but well worth the watch.......

The movie makes you think, I understand a parents love for their child and a caretaker - well caring about the person their taking care of, the two things that make this less enjoyable are the way the director shot it and solid reasoning to make a person go to that point, it was worth watching.

Good Movie once it takes off. Starts from the end and works backwards to finish at the end which was the beginning. Confused? Watch and judge for yourself. The Mum played a much better part in Orphan as a (would you believe?)Psychiatrist. This is a film you need to watch on your own with total concentration. 6/10

Captivating performances and no dialogue wasted. Familiar beginning story of symbiotic mother/son relationship on steroids with a novel twist. Movies like this are why I like character-driven indie films. 4/5 because I did not think the beginning sequence added anything to the plot.

Well, the ending was kind of confusing. Also, what Paige did to rectify the situation was kind of ridiculous. It would have just been better to take a camera with her and take pictures of all the suspected abuse. A professional would have been able to tell if the kid did it to himself of if the bruises were inflicted by someone else. The mother did do a very good acting job. I had all sorts of theories. I know the kids father was abusive. He left the mom so I was wondering if she took it out on the kid and became abusive herself. It appears every gut she tried to hook up with ran for the hills because of her son. I think it is obvious it was her, but you make your own conclusions. It was a good one time watch. I just wish the ending would have been more clear.

Damn! That's all can say. Sometimes trying to do the right thing probably means your medicine is worse than the cure.

Just like aamberjeremiiahaah said,The movie kinda goes from end to beginning back to the end but this was a good watch not knowing where it was leading to then the babysitter pulls some really fkt up sht to help the disabled guy out but in the end im not sure what really was the outcome but that may be part of the way the film was designed,this movie has an appeal that keeps you watching without the thought of shutting it down,4/5

Wow this was sort of a strange watch. It wasnt that bad though a babysitter suspects abuse on a boy she babysits for and does some really strange things to get get help for him. The movie kind of goes from end to beginning. Good Watch! 4/5

Wow! I wasn't expecting this film to be this good. It was actually quite pleasant. The direction changed somewhere in the middle and I was like "ohh." It is an open ended movie left to interpretation so before you watch it, keep that in mind... Don't complain in the end that you did not get a conclusion! I think it was better left unsaid and to be honest it is a little obvious as to what really happened. Superior acting by the mom, she was so annoying, I wanted to hit her in the head with a bat. Thumbs up!

Not sure what to do with or what to think about it! Like most reviews, I still don't know what the hell really happened which is never good for any film. The mother had a top notch performance as I noticed this right from the beginning and if you look her up, you will find that Margo Martindale has more than 83 titles under her belt - it means she has superior acting skills. Most have never heard of her likely because she is not a size 2. But I digress, the film was confusing in the end because it left the viewer without answers. Anyway, we all know who the lunatic ended up being in this movie. Good for a one time watch. 2/5 because there was one great actress.

Hmm... don't really know what to say about this one. I liked the idea, but not enough storyline to understand it completely.Warnng!!! Spoiler Alert!!! Was he gettiing abused? Why did she do that to herself in the end? What was the point to this nonsense of a movie. Acting was good. Direction was decent. But the storyline sucked. 7/10.

This film didīnt hold my atesion longer than 20 min, had a realy lowbudget feal to it. They stole the whole backwards idea from a French movie called "Irreversible". Watch that one instead.

I just can say, the main story starts at 50 minutes, you can watch by there. For me it's bad directed, he repeats a lot 2 styles: 360š and zoom in. Weird choices of camera moving, they always use that 360š view, long time spent in filming the eyes, the music choice is not good, the cut of scenes is not thriller mood. The story is poor, the only really crazy in the story is the babysitter. Don't waste your time. I'm gonna be bad girl here 0/10. The mom is very good actress but it's not a good movie.

A clever title - unfortunately that is all I have to say positive about this thriller. Although the mother's acting was good (the reason why I stuck with this movie to the end), the other two in the triangle were sub-par. The final blow for me was the closing music track - why on earth would they pick Sarabande, the recurring theme song from Barry Lyndon? If it was to remind us of the duel in the Kubrick film, it was a poor decision in my opinion. Oh well, can't win 'em all. 2.5/5 Thank you uplinkers, as always.
