The story is another thing that seems to be getting a bashing. The story was what kept me watching. It isn't a retelling of the Lizzie Borden murders as some seem to think, they simply used the original story and expanded on it. There was nothing that I didn't understand after the movie finished and nothing disjointed about the story. Everyone is saying the acting is really bad, I disagree. A couple of lines throughout the movie were delivered poorly but they were few and far between. I would rate the acting better than average as I have seen some real stinkers.
I had this movie in my watch list for some time and had avoided watching it after reading all of the negative reviews. I eventually decided to give it a go and it was much better than I expected.
