The movie didn’t seemed to end in cult rituals at the beginning. With a very usual everyday family scene will mislead you to think about what is going on. Horrible scenes and amazing depiction one with may feel all the fiction turning into reality. Also a mother’s desperation to protect her children and keep her family together while fighting depression was in the heart. Just like any other family they also had a secret and it was gruesome. Nonetheless all the actors did a brilliant job representing their characters.
