All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Scalene (2011)

Starring: Margo Martindale, Hanna Hall, Adam Scarimbolo
Director: Zack Parker

The story concerning the rape of a college caregiver by a mentally disabled man told in three points of view. The caregiver, the patient, and his mother.

My Take:
This movie hit a little close to home for me. I have an elderly grandmother with dementia and I have had to take care of her and have hired a caregiver in the past. I know how a person can be treated by another person with the disease and I also know how much trust you put in a caregiver when you are not around.
With that said, the movie does a great job with the three different view points. And while the the main details solved with the allegations of the rape charge are figured out, the whole set of circumstances is not revealed. And it makes for an above average flick. 

Rating: So Good
