The Mad Room

Film, Horror

Time Out says

American Gothic: a remake of Ladies in Retirement, rather disastrously renovated for contemporary consumption. Shelley Winters is the wealthy widow, Stella Stevens the companion whose teenage brother and sister (released after years in a mental institution, suspected of hacking their parents to bits) come to stay. Skeletons in the cupboard, hacked-up bodies, and severed hands still can't make it anything more than routine.
