entertaining indie with some nice twists

Wasn't expecting much but thought I'd give it a go. Great indie movie - nice change from a lot of the generic stuff in its category. Go watch.

Disturbing. Gripping. A must for fans of true indie.

At a budget of $45,000 you can't get anymore indie than this. Matriarch will trade punches with a lot of multi-million dollar movies and put many to shame. Matriarch shows a couple's desperate fight to stay alive while trapped in a remote farmhouse inhabited by an evil and sinister family. Its a slick production, head and shoulders above most low budgets or indeed any micro budget I've ever seen. The acting is superb and highly realistic. And astonishingly there's some 'laugh-out-loud' moments. Matriarch is not your average bloody horror or a jumpy fright fest, instead it burrows into your psyche with chilling nightmarish scenarios that are often hard to watch. It takes you to places where your mind doesn't want to go and is nothing short of an emotional roller coaster. There is nothing scarier than being alone and lost in a place you don't know, but being held captive against your will is the stuff of nightmares. Matriarch is a powerful horror / thriller film which builds on your own fears and plays with them in ways you won't expect. The movie is an original, thrilling and disturbing survival story which delves deep into the horrors of being stranded in a rural hell. While many independent horror films take influence from elsewhere, Matriarch doesn't fit any particular mould, it finds its own niche on its own soil and runs with it. Also worth mentioning that this movie was apparently shot for less than Blair Witch Project and in less time. An unbelievable achievement by the filmmakers which leads me to ask: what could they do if they get a decent budget? Ones to watch out for I think. Matriarch is an impressive, thought-provoking film which leaves you wondering what would happen if you ended up in the same situation.

Moms watch with caution

So.... as a Mom this movie certainly had an effect - parts were very hard to watch but it's one of those where you just can't look away. Its not gory or particularly violent more sinister, stirring and gritty. The cinematography of Scotland is stunning also, in contrast to the subject matter. My husband and I were gripped by it. The acting is very very good from the two leads. The pain and anguish of the main character is visceral and real. A dark entertaining movie that has a real indie / European tone and vibe.
