Watch The Afflicted - Alternative Versions.
Maggie (A great, if slightly manic performance from Leslie Easterbrook,
aka Callahan from Police Academy!) is a god fearing Christian woman,
married to Hank (A nicely done cameo from Kane Hodder). When their
marriage fails, due to Maggie's uncompromising fire and brimstone style
views, Maggie becomes bitter, resentful and beset with financial woes.
Taking to the drink, she begins endlessly watching the public access TV
show of the Cowboy Preacher (JD Hart), who comes to visit at times.
Spare the rod and spoil the child, the family must stick together, is
what the cowboy preaches from Maggie's TV.
As the financial difficulties worsen, Maggie begins to fancy she can
converse with God, and that her children should pull together, and chip
in anyway they can. If that means doing things they normally wouldn't
do, then so be it. And if any dissent ensues, well, Maggie is more than
willing to dispense her own quite vicious brand of discipline, because
spare the rod, and spoil the child, after all...
The Afflicted is a well shot and well acted horror, with good
performances all around, from a nice cameo from Hodder to an excellent
(if again, slightly ott) performance from Easterbrook.
It's also pretty grim, with a bleak tone, and will probably inevitably
draw comparisons with The Girl Next Door. However, my main beef with
this was that it requires serious suspension of disbelief, and I'm
actually wondering if it really is based on a true story as it claims
or if this is just a marketing ploy, the way Wolf Creek was supposedly
based on a true story, when in reality it was simply loosely influenced
by a number of true life cases.
The kids, who are all between 17 and 18, one of them a guy, have ample
opportunity throughout the film (at least by default anyway) to either
escape, report or even overpower Easterbrook, yet don't. This detracts
from any tension, and makes it hard to take the whole thing seriously.
Most if not all of the supporting characters outside the family are
stereotypical rednecks, and towards the end, you're just kinda waiting
for things to finish.
The Afflicted isn't precisely a bad film, it's more of a flawed one,
but overall, I found it neither stand out or substandard. It just
failed to leave a lasting impression on me, well made and well acted
that it was. 5/10 probably worth a look actually, to make one's own
