review by
Mike Haberfelner

Emma (Meredith Mohler) and Jackson (Lewis Hines) have always had a very close relationship with their mother Tammy (Keni Bounds) - something that has changed when she married Robbie (Jeff Buchwald), as he's a religious zealot who sees sin everywhere but with himself and demands unconditional obedience. Now Jackson tries to remain on good terms with Robbie at almost any cost, but Emma has a rebellious streak to her that makes her clash with her new "dad" almost constantly. Thing is, Emma and Jackson are not especially unruly, but they're teenagers who've only recently sexually awakened, and Emma has to find out she's pregnant - a baby she doesn't want to keep - while Jackson is drawn to other men, and when Robbie finds out he pretty much explodes. To protect her children, Tammy takes them to Abraham House, she claims to keep them safe while she prepares for a new life for them without Robbie ... but the place actually turns out to be a re-education camp for wayward children to get them back on track - which really also means "healing" them from homosexuality. The place is run by Mary Esther (Jo-Ann Robinson), a religious fanatic with little consideration for anyone's well-being above what's right according to her re-interpretation of the bible, and her nephew Hank (Chris Moore), a closet homosexual secretly in love with the place's gardener (George Mayronne). For some reason, Jackson goes for the indoctrination, even if that means to wipe out his sexual identity, but Emma is looking for a way out, and she soon finds a willing accomplice in Rebecca (Ana-Claire Henley), a girl in a similar situation as herself who's as suspicious about the goings-on inside the house as she is - and whose sister Megan's (Raith Stanley) locked up in the basement for punishment. What neither of them, nor any of the other inmates, know is that Mary Esther's actually a homicidal maniac who enjoys killing "in the name of the Lord", and she has long done away with Megan - and one after the other, she plans to eliminate the other inmates of the place as well ...


A pretty disturbing piece of cult-themed horror that build up its story from mere religious zealotry to relentless (and really God-less) violence, with commendable narrative stringency on one side, and without ever losing the plot's underlying tension on the other. On a directorial level, the film might save up on spectacle until the finale, but manages to emit a certain feel of unease throughout, while a relatabe cast manages to keep things grounded enough to grant cool genre entertainment.
