After seeing Shane Jacobson's first film 'Kenny' I went into this expecting something similar, a light humored comedy. This is far cry from his earlier work, and although the movie does have its funny moments, it is also quite dark. Definitely worth seeing.

Brothers Jeff (Clayton Jacobson) and Terry (Shane Jacobson) have come up with a plan for the perfect murder; they've meticulously organized a sequence of events so that when the body is discovered, it is seen as obviously a suicide. Jeff has even ensured that they won't leave any DNA evidence behind, making sure that they have protective clothing, gloves and shoe covers. But when the intended victim arrives, nothing goes quite to plan....This kind of deeply dark humour either strikes the viewer as wonderfully imaginative and smart and funny, or as producing a "huh?" kind of reaction; fortunately this viewer at least felt the former rather than the latter. The film was directed by Clayton and produced by both real-life brothers, so in addition to the dark humour the comparisons to the Coen Brothers are bound to come up; but these two put a whole new spin on the idea that things never quite go to plan, no matter how meticulous you've been in trying to foresee every contingent. A few violent scenes, nothing more gory than you might see on television today, but a warning to the squeamish on that front; otherwise, just enjoy!
Well, this was not only a dark 'comedy' but very much a dark horse. Dark comedy-type movies can be really hit and miss. They can be so stupid you cringe and walk out horrified or they can be utterly disconcertingly clever and engrossing. This movie is the latter.I watched the preview but still had no idea what was in store for me. Nothing fit into my little box of clichés throughout and that was not only completely unsettling but utterly necessary to make this the superb piece of moving making that it is. Did I mention thoroughly unsettling? Sure is and yet, it not only nailed the structure and pathology of far too many families, it took you on a brilliant ride through the minds of people, how they justify their actions, how siblings can divert each other, how families seem to never communicate to the point that... well, this kind of dynamic might occur.
Exceptional acting! Right down to the 'horsey girl'! A small, brilliant cast, nothing overdone, overstated or overacted. If you can't handle dark comedy with unexpected twists and turns then this may unsettle you but if you can, you're in for a real treat!
