The meaning of the film
Director Phillip Penza reminds viewers of the mysterious component of a binary inorganic compound. He started from the theory that water has a memory. The ultimate atrocity has soaked the chemical down to its atoms. The liquid takes on a material shell, punishes adultery and does good deeds. Retribution is paid only to vicious natures, and they are attracted like a magnet by a secluded estate. The vengeful spirit is an indomitable element, and, despite the initial good intentions, an unintelligent child is under threat.
Pentz demonstrated how deceitful seeming family harmony can be, how many lies and deceit “registered” in human hearts.
Characteristics of the main characters
Daryl is a dark-skinned giant: good-natured, devoted to employers, hardworking. A simple man, without education, is not demanding and not conceited. He gives all the money for the treatment of his mother. She takes pity on the mistress when she learns of her husband’s infidelity. For him, landscaping, caring for plants is not just a job, he puts his soul into every flower.
Frank is lustful, cruel and merciless. After the murder of his wife, his hand did not tremble to cut down his mistress. Without remorse, he continued to live in the house where he committed a double crime.
Lian is a kind and caring woman. She took pity on her employee and was going to pay for his education at the institute. Became a vengeful ghost.
Greg is loving, has a connection with the opposite sex, and with the producer. Cynical, brings passion under the same roof with the missus. When my daughter started having health problems, he began to regret the adoption. In a difficult moment, he remembered his wife.
Stephanie is a loving mother and caring wife. The first felt the oddities that occur in the new home. Kind to the adoptive mother.
Jacobson and Samuels are not very successful detectives. Not distinguished by promptness, not a single disappearance of a person has been investigated. The policemen limited themselves only to warnings and, in addition to annoying visits, did not distinguish themselves in anything.
Danny is a sweet girl. Having made friends with evil spirits, he falls under its influence. He does not hide a strange friend, but his parents, preoccupied with their own problems, ignore the wake-up call.
Horror movie without horror: sex, “dim” characters and slurred ending.
Pentz’s painting is a unique work – it is difficult to praise it for something. An interesting, but not original, idea of an omnipotent liquid was let down by clumsy execution. From the first frames, there is a strong feeling that the viewer was mistakenly turned on a movie for adults, there are plenty of intimate scenes and nudity, and these episodes do not carry any semantic load and do not serve as decoration for the tape. Numerous dialogues are empty and boring, they do not turn out to be the necessary threads that reveal the characters or the motives for their actions. The theme of adoption is paraded, which is not beaten in any way, if the child was a native, this did not affect the disclosure of the plot in any way.
The work of the operator deserves a negative assessment: inappropriate close-ups and an attempt to simulate the realism of what is happening completely failed. “Washed out” special effects do not give rise to sharp emotions, the appearance of an ominous entity seemed like a parody of the main villain from “The Call”. The illogical behavior of the characters is the final touch of a failed horror film. The facial expressions of the actors do not change, with the same facial expression they depict fear, anger, grief or love.
The ending of the picture is no less bewildering. “Granny of the Year” rescues a girl from a dangerous place, leaving her mother in the dark. The creepy grin on the face of the black worker looks very promising.
